    I had a slightly hectic week, and a lot to do.
    So i had to check if i didn't somehow skipped a day and that it already was the 1st.
    Wich would mean that i missed 2 very important appointments and an opening of a gallery/exhibition.

    Thank's satly for making me doubt myself and my sanity, you really, really had me going there !

    They are common lil buggers over here, you head out early in the morning and they are still making their way back down into the valleys to get some shade where its cooler and have a sleep. There was about 10 of them when i rode through, the one that hung about was very inquisitive, i dont think she ever seen 4.8's before. I took 120 pics this morning so theres plenty more.

    Looking forward to seeing the pictures from across the globe.

    Happy Fatbike Day!

    Hi, from Siberia!
    12-01-2012 at 01:30 PM
    We started to celebrate from the great place of the Siberian fatbiking. It was on a fork of three bays of the Angara river near Irkutsk.

    Our little family of fatbikes...


    ...their happy owners


    A celebratory round dance


    First fatbike that appeared in Siberia For more than three years it has not any changes or significant upgrades

    No snow, but plenty ice.




    I hate this as a ride because it's really steep and there's no warm up, straight into steepness.





    But there's things to see




    And it opened up, but the tracks were icy and tricky to ride on



    but once it's opened up, it makes the climb worthwhile (1,120ft)







    And then a nice crunchy ride over high moorland



    Happy Global Fatterday!

    Just had to celebrate Fat Bike Day with a ride at Cape Spear, Newfoundland, Canada, the most easterly point in North America. It was cold (-4C) and windy (50 km/h) but a lot of fun!
    Have a great day everyone!

    I am going to be busy all day today, so I did what any logical fatbiker would have done. Nightride! I left at 12am sharp local time for hopefully one of the first gfd rides in my timezone. Sorry, no on-trail pics but here is the gooey aftermath.

    Happy Holidays from West Michigan!

    Well since we are always a day late and dollar short in NJ I gave my moo a nice soapy bath for tomorrow. What's tomorrow? Well there is a cyclecross race with a fat bike class my friends shop is putting on. I will be racing and I will have my moonie there for demo rides as I preach the fat bike life.official global fatbike day picture & aftermath thread-imageuploadedbytapatalk1354378406.556455.jpg

    And now for something a little more urban.

    No epic trip, but I had to get out for GFD. It's great to think of all the people I was riding with today. Happy Fatterday, everyone. Prince Edward Island, Canada.

    Greetings from Southern Upstate NY;

    A balmy 32* at ride time. Floog'n Awesome! What a grand idea this was. I can't believe
    the pics you folks are posting. Just amazing. I'm not one of those warm & fuzzy touchy
    feely weenie types, but I have to say I'm feeling the love here!

    Thanks to my buddy Dan for bringing out his big boy camera to get better shots than I
    would have fumbling around on my own. We forgot to take pics for most of the ride after
    this. I decided to celebrate GFBD by heading straight UP one of the nastiest
    trails I know of right off the bat. "Heartbreak Ridge." It's a dangerous gut busting quad
    burner going up, and a real beating going down. Pictures often lie, so you can't really tell
    that if I get it wrong here, I will be tumbling down hill for quite a ways. The intense look on
    my face is no lie, and that's near 300lbs of Fat (both me and the Humvee!) churning up
    that hill!









    No, my buddy is not Fat yet. Yes, hanging around with me, he is getting the burn for one
    REAL BAD!

    Peace to all my Blimpy Brethren around the world!

    Unfortunately, one hard crash took one of our fatties out, along with her friend, who had to bail

    We ended the chilly day with some food and tales at one of the picnic tables. Great meeting new people and putting faces to names. Can't wait to meet again for another ride!
