    Global fatbike day is tomorrow, the 1st. I may take off up into the mountains. May try Minnewanka again.

    minne should be pretty fantastic, the freeze thaw is about perfect right now and if there is a little coating of fresh on top it'll be stellar riding.

    i'm trying to find the time but not looking good right now. let me know what times you guys are thinking and i'll see what i can do, i'd love to hit minne
    what would rainbow unicorn do?

    Thinking of Minnewanke or Goat Creek on Saturday myself, I think the latter trail may be full of Mukluks in the afternoon (Rebound Cycles in Canmore is doing a fatbike demo day).

    Sorry guys - I'm out for the Sunday west Bragg ride.

    But if anyone wants to ride in town this week I'm probably going to go just about every night (wife and kid out of town).

    I couldn't ride this weekend guys. Sick as a dog. But I'm interested in a Ride this week. Oh did you hear that porcelain designs who make the fat bike bags are moving to Calgary. No more over the top postage.

    Is Goat Creek primarily for cross country skiing? I ride it loads in the summer but wondered if I would meet with any resistance from the cross country princess's if I went down there Monday.

    Yeah it is over winter, however there isn't much in the way of proper grooming to mess up until a fair distance down the trail, past the 2nd bridge. However I would suggest trying to stay in the middle and avoid going over the ski tracks on either side.

    I'm going to try West Bragg Creek again on Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday. According to the k-country trail report from yesterday:

    Between 5 and 10 cm of snow fell in the area last weekend. This new snow and recent grooming has
    left the trails with what some skiers are calling the best ski conditions of the season for this area.
    Caution is still advised for natural hazards and ice flows.

    We won't be on the XC ski trails though - we will be on the all season singletrack trails (Braggin Rights, Reconnect, Long Distance).

    Anybody else have some time off and want to give it a go?

    I don't have a fat bike, but I'd be interested to know if the trails are packed enough to bring out the ice spikers.

    There is a new group on Google+ - Fatbiking Alberta - open to all to discuss fatbiking in general, organize rides, discuss trail conditions, and so on.

    MTBr wont let me post the link, just do a search on Google+ for it.

    Can y'all spread the word and perhaps join up?

    I am hoping to head out to West Bragg on Sunday. I rode there yesterday and the new snow that fell over the last few days has made the trails a little softer to ride but lots of fun.

    I am going to start a ride from the West Bragg Creek parking lot at 1PM. Probably about 2 hours or so - join me if you like.

    Did the Bragging Rights, Reconnect, Long Distance loop. BR is in great shape, Reconnect is pretty soft, and LD is great. I don't think I'd recommend it for regular MTBs at this point - the soft parts would likely be walking, since I barely had enough traction with HuDu / Nate on the middle third. The LD downhill was super fun - I should have brought the GoPro.

    Proposed - Snow bike group ride around Calgary

    For those that aren't also part of the Google Plus group mentioned above, we have a fat bike ride / race set up for West Bragg Creek tomorrow at 11. With all of the snow last week, conditions are apparently pretty marginal even for fat tires, so regular mtbs probably wouldn't have much fun.
