    The Fat of Suburbia........AKA Urban Fatbiking.

    We all love to ride , well, everywhere on our FB`s.

    We've seen pix of trails,sand snow and sea, but what about the rest ?

    How about some urban backyard shots of where we all live ?

    Show us the good, bad and plain crazy places around your towns.

    Let us see the Fat of Suburbia

    I lived in downtown Calgary for my first two years of Pugs ownership. We did lots of urban assault rides, but due to the dark and cold didn't document as well as we should have.



    Urban winter riding is a great application for a fatbike.



    Of course fat and urban doesn't have to be a winter thing.



    OTOH if you live in Alberta winter is something you have to deal with.



    A Pugsley makes the parks and bikepaths accessible all winter.

    Safe riding,

    Tnx DrF.

    I took the pic not far from my house at a place that was once an industrial area where a lot of ships came in and out that went to all corners of the world.
    But since the ships became bigger and bigger this place was to small and got redeveloped into a residential area.

    I don't know the story behind the statue of the dog.
    But i think it sits there waiting for his master to come back from sea.....

    From today's ride.



    EDIT: wondering if Black Floyds would do in places like these (as they probably would rock in urban areas):

    Photo is a year old now, but here's my 9:Zero:7 rolling on Large Marges & Maxxis Hookworms at the NYC 5 Boro Bike Tour:



    Photo was taken somewhere in Brooklyn. Those tires felt huge then, but seem so small with the Black Floyds out now!

    Very sweet! He has all his bases covered.

    Recumbent? Check
    Chopper? Check
    Half Fat? Check
    Exotic Materials? Check
    Flames? Check
    Air Horn? Check
    Wooden Bash Guard? Check

    If he strapped a milk crate to the back he could add Cargo Bike to the list.
