    Northwest Fat Bikers Annual Ocean Shores Group Ride/Meet

    This years anuual get together at Ocean Shores Washington will be September 21st & 22nd. Anyone with a fat bike is welcome!

    The main ride will start Sat. 10:00am on the beach in front of the Shiloh Inn (main beach access point- same as last year). Sunday's ride is TBD as per the group and the weather.

    There are a wide range of motels & etc. at Ocean Shores and Ocean City State Park is just 1.5 miles north w/ beach access. Folks staying at the state park can meet us on the beach easily and access town via they're fat bikes on the beach rather than riding the road.

    Many of us will get there sometime on Friday and will probably meet up to stretch are legs on the beach. Feel free to PM me for info.

    I wish I could go! I can't get away this weekend but I'm definitely interested in some beach and snow rides this year.

    Right now I don't have a proper fat bike but I've got a Krampus and it's pretty capable in a lot of conditions. My girlfriend is picking up an On-One fatty very soon.

    We have big plans for winter riding this year. We rented bikes in Winthrop last year and had a blast.

    We're hoping to ride in the Hwy 12 area this year. Are there plans for any winter meet ups?

    White Pass Ski Area lets us ride on the XC trails after 3:30pm. Also planning something for Global Fat Bike Day Dec. 7th. If there's not allot of snow yet we may head for some inland dunes/sand at Moses Lake, Beverly Dunes or Frenchman Coulee. PM me if you want to try to hook up.

    Great video! I really need to get a fat bike.

    I see the whale is still there. I rode out to the whale in June, shortly after it washed up.

    I saw it in July when I was there as well. Trust me when I say now it really STINKS!

    We had to take sips from our flasks to kill the effect...

    Yeah, the couple we let ride 'em joined the Northwest Fatbike facebook page the next day and are shopping for fat bikes. They said they'll join us on our next outing. "Spreadin' the Fat" brother!
