    Fat Tuesday

    Seems like the perfect day to get out and ride and drink some beer!

    Maybe a good day to celebrate and promote fat biking?

    Unfortunately I am sitting in an airport waiting on a flight. We just got some freshies here but I could not get out and ride. At least I am getting free beer in the Air France lounge!

    Yep, I got out there today. After 4 days of sub freezing temps and 100+ mph winds and blowing snow, the sun finally came out and temps topped out at 45f. Glorious day, only saw one other person the entire ride, they were on a fat bike too. Topped it off with some post ride local microbrews!!

    Fat Tuesday is a part of Mardi Gras and is a big partying day. It happens every year around this time. I was just thinking it would be fun to use it also as a once a year fat biking recognition day. The play on words is no different than a lot of the fat bike names like Farley or Fatboy. And I am not saying only ride once a year but make sure you do ride that day regardless of conditions or daylight or anything else that might prevent you from riding.

    So not real easy to pick a new day

    I have one of the Origin8 coffee holders but don't use it because the cups I've used spill coffee all over the place because bumps. Do you have a tapered coffee mug that fits, doesn't spill and if so what is it?
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.
