    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

    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!

    GISdork bounces:


    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!

    Fun ride with a lucky seven of us out. Could have been a double digit turnout IF some hadn't had to work, were not down with flu, or not commited to the Santa Claus Parade.

    My GFBD ride consisted of buying Pizza for my LBS, enjoying chatter and then I took a short ride up the canyon. Hope everyone was able to get out on their bikes, enjoy time with friends and family!

    I didn't really participate in GFBD with a ride so to speak. But I did come home with a brand new yellow PUGSLEY! Unfortunately it was already dark out by the time we rolled it out the door. But they built it for me today just so I could say I got it on GFBD and ride it around the parking lot. Also to have it ready for the big Chicagoland/Palos Fat-Bike ride tomorrow morning. So in reality, we'll all be celebrating a day late. Pics to come after tomorrows ride.

    Thanks to 2bici bike shop in Willow Springs for building it on the spot for me today since they didn't have the color I wanted in a complete. These guys are awesome!

    Happy Fat Bike day everyone! I'm thrilled to join the fold today of all days. Cheers

    We did a little fat biking today, like we do every weekend, Lauren runs with our baby(she is a really fast runner even with the baby) and I ride the bike on the single track, we plan to get snow shoes for her for the snow..

    So far no snow, not even mud after a lot of rain last night (Salt lake city)

    Note: photo from a week ago, but it just look the same today

    Nakedbabytoes and I headed out today for our ride. Had a great time and tons of fun. About 2 miles in, I figured I was good enough to head down the ravine, cross the creek and get back up. Made it across and started up the hill but my back tire spun out and I fell backwards into the creek. Talk about COLD, COLD water. My left arm and wrist is all swollen, scraped up and bruised now, but nothing is broken. My left leg is starting to bruise up now. Hubby came back with dry clothes and we carried on. Saw several guys on fat bikes riding through. Gorgeous day for riding!

    Oh..and the bottom pic is for our GR bike friends. Golf course was great to let me use the cart and take the pic and loved the bike. I don't really hate golf..LOL.

    Couple of pics from the Minnesota Edition which was kind of like the other editions, but we generally don't want to bother people or make a big deal about anything.

    I didn't take any of these pics

    It's cool to see everyone's pictures! There are some large fat bike communities out there!

    Only 3 of us showed up for the first Global Fat Bike Day in Whitehorse, Yukon (Canada).

    The idea was to ride as part of the local "Winterval Parade", which is an annual parade to celebrate winter. The thermometers indicated -29C (-20F), so the wait before the start of the parade was a little cold. Fortunately, the parade ended in a downtown park and fires were setup to warm up everyone.

    MTBR member RockyRider took the opportunity to set up a meeting with the Park Manager at our local nordic area at Mt Spokane State Park and do some fatbike PR. We let them kick the tires and see what all the madness is about. The seed has been planted.

    official global fatbike day picture &amp; aftermath thread-img_0438.jpg

    It was 40F+ and the snow was wet, heavy and unrideable, try as we might. We couldn't let the photo op pass, though.

    official global fatbike day picture &amp; aftermath thread-img_0439.jpg

    We headed to lower elevations and took a ride on trails there instead.

    We had a blast getting together and celebrating this momentous inaugural edition of GFBD. Here's a toast to all our fat brothers and sisters, wherever you may be!

    ^^Sweet. Agree with 554 that next GFBD we should do a big group ride either North shore or South. I'll even come over from Joisey, and bring along whomever else I've converted by then.

    Happy Fatter's Day from Central Washington! Three of us headed for Frenchman Coulee to ride some sandy trails & dunes we spotted on Google Earth in the Columbia River Gorge. My friend Tim rode my spare and our new friend and "Northwest Fatbiker" Chris rode his Moonie w/ Bud, Lou, a Rolloff and a Lefty. We didn't ride allot of miles but played in the sand for hours.

    Thanks Sven! We didn't have time to really explore the area. We want to get some more NW Fatbikers together and go back there one of these days. Saw the pic of your Fatback, looking good!

    Looking good gentlemen! We had a blast at Frenchman Coulee! We'd like to get the "crew" together and head back one of these days. Overnight camping is legal there where the rock climbers park up above. Cheers!

    GFD in Forillon National Park

    Went to the Cape Gaspe lighthouse in beautiful Forillon National Park (Quebec, Canada). I was alone since I am the only one to own a fat bike in the region.


    Lighthouse and plaque at the start of the International Appalachian Trail.

    Canmore, Alberta; went for a ride up through Whiteman's Gap



    then out along the Goat Creek Trail



    Had a little bit of traction issue on the softer snow uphills with the Chariot, may need something more aggressive than the stock BFLs for towing in such conditions.

    There were a bunch of Mukluks being demoed on that trail today so I wasn't the only fat biker out.

    The idea was to ride as part of the local "Winterval Parade", which is an annual parade to celebrate winter. The thermometers indicated -29C (-20F), so the wait before the start of the parade was a little cold. Fortunately, the parade ended in a downtown park and fires were setup to warm up everyone.
    Ah! I wish I could have gone. I was going to pull my one year old in the trailer but I figured it was too cold for him if there was a lot of waiting around. I haven't ridden my bike for a week due to having a cold and it being so cold.

    Happy GFBD Everyone !

    I had to work all day today, so it was a night ride for me. As it turns out, one of my riding buddies (Motorcycles) is moving to colorado tomorrow, so tonight I rode to his going away party, and hung out with a bunch of..... Fat Bikers!

    Here is some pics of the urban ride over, and a couple of the late night stragglers.....

    Debated on going over and hooking up with Gomez at the Kettles in southern Wisconsin (which looks like they had a good turnout), but instead a small group stayed in Cambridge and worked on some new trail we are building.

    Just as we finished trail work it started to rain. We did get out for a short wet ride on some brand new singletrack.

    Then we headed over to Camrock Cafe & Sport for beer, food, some live music and a warm fire.

    No big epic ride, but a good day with good friends and a good time.
