It all started at The Forks in the Heart of Winnipeg – where the Red and Assiniboine Rivers join and our adventures begun with Fat Jason Preaching the Fattie ‘Gospel’: “Fat Bikes Roll Over Everything”!
45+ riders joined Winnipeg’s GFBD Ride at some point along the way.
First we crossed the Red River via the Riel Esplanade Foot Bridge.
Then over to the St. Boniface Cathedral for our first group photo.
Then back down to the Red River …
For our official photo-shoot …
… with Gregory McNeill ready and waiting.
After a bit of “work with me – work with me” … ‘Money Shot’!
Whittier Park got us back onto the trails where fatties belong!
The Seine River was just recently hard frozen and rideable …
Hard frozen? Yes siree … until a group cluster led to cracking sounds!
So off we went again …
Riding the Seine this early in the season was a bonus!
Back onto the road … necessary to ride to the Casa PitStop.
Where all riders could rest, feast and ‘re-hydrate’ 🙂
Global Fat Bike Day thrived in Winnipeg in 2014!
