Anybody Fat Biking?

As in Ďusing a fat bikeí, not as in.... well, you get my drift!

So last year when the snow wasnít prime for skiing I broke down and got a used Surly Moonlander. I took it out about 10 times, skiing improved and I havenít used it since. But serious skiing hasnít started here yet and the trails are pretty packed - and I bought fenders since getting snow kicked up in my face wasnít on my Ďgood timesí list - which means Iím going to get out and ride it on the lower angle mountain bike trails around here. I learned a valuable lesson last year about going off trail (donít do it!).

Maybe Iíll even ride up Mt. Crowe instead of snow shoeing up like I did Friday.


Crowe Summit 2150 m.
Or maybe Iíll just ride around on the trails on the slopes below!

Anybody else into Fat biking? Iím find getting the right clothing combo the biggest challenge.
