    Fatbiking in Whitehorse at 40 below -- CBC news story

    Here's a television story on fatbiking we did with our local CBC news. Apparently it was shown nationally in some other parts of Canada as well.

    Yeah, but -40 in Canada is -40 Celsius.

    Oh, wait...never mind.

    But really: snowmobilers and skiers go out then, why not a bike?

    Didn't think it warranted a new thread and considering it is Whitehorse's sister city, here is one from - Fairbanks.

    Nice article... When they talk about sales doubling each year it sounds a lot like Whitehorse right now.

    Great thread, glad to see some 'press' about fat bikes.

    Just a thought...doing an upcomming group ride somewhere...invite the local TV news guys.

    Let them try a bike out...never can tell. Sand would be perfect for someone to try one out on,
    even if they are a novice rider.
