    New Year's Day ride

    Leaving from the Kincaid Chalet at 11 a.m. to ride the Frosty Bottom course to Service High and back. Steady, moderate pace. Anyone who wants to keep it short can ride as far as they want, then turn return to Kincaid.

    For questions, use this thread or send me a PM.

    Sincerely,

    The forum member formerly known as timwoody, then the badly bruised Bad Karma, and now the happier and hopefully safer Big Karma. (Don't even ask about the new avatar.)

    Huh, I thought it kind of looked like Tim Kelly (The BIKER) in a derby and moo-moo.

    If you look closely, you'll notice he's brightly illuminated from a light source that's in front of him -- I think it's the thousand-watt bike lights!

    I'll be there too

    I'm gonna leave from my house and ride from Service toward Kincade and meet up with you folks on the trail and then ride back to service.

    See ya out there, I won't be on a fat bike, I'll be on my 29er.

    When Greg and Pete see those pics, they're probably going to repo that Fatback!

    Thanks to everyone who came out today. We left Kincaid with 13 people, and the pack grew to 17 or 18 as various riders joined us along the route. We even picked up two new riders who were out on their own and decided to fall in with us for a while. That's the kind of rolling party a bike ride should be.

    And a special thanks to Ben and the anonymous sledding family who gave him a GPS bike computer they found in the parking lot by the chalet. I thought that sucker was gone for good, then I signed on a little while ago and found a note from Ben. My silly gadget is safely stashed at his house.

    That should silence all you naysayers who think I've been having a personality crisis! Ya think something like that would have happened for a guy with Bad Karma? Noooooo. But I've got Big Karma!

    Livin' clean, livin' right.

    WOW! You all were an incredible sight to see on the trail. I'm still shaking my head in disbelief of the sheer number of fatbikes. I wish I could've joined you. I was the dork on the Rivendell with the 'skinny' tires heading the 'wrong direction'. Well, maybe next year. Happy trails!

    New Years Day!

    Wow! That was an awesome ride yesterday. To spend 4 plus hours on my new Fatback on New Years Day with the most awesome group of winter riders in the world couldn't have been a better start to the new year. Great photos too - thanks to the shooters.

    Wow sorry I missed it ! I opted to take Matt our fat bike vistor from Seattle out to Eklutna lake for a more photogenic and adventurous ride.Riding out there was good but definantly a low pressure pugs only affair.
