Fat Tom K’s MFB Post:
Here it is folks, probably our last chance to gather the MB Fat Bike Herd for a group ride on groomed winter ski trails … yes, you heard me and it’s true! Once again, we have been granted access by MB Parks officials to the Grand Beach Prov Park ‘Winter/Ski’ Trails for some fat biking fun! This is just for the end of the ‘snow season’, but should bode well for future coordinating of more regular access. 🙂
So, giddy up Fatties:
When: Sunday, 22 March 2015. Start at 9:00 AM – sharp
Where: GBPP Parking lot for XC Ski/Hiking Trails
Who: Any Fat Biker
Bike Tech: Minimum 3.7 inch wide tires and low pressure – 10 PSI Max (float & traction = :-))
It’s a Fireside Potluck BBQ – bring something Eh!

KA-POW!!! SUPER DUPER FAT BIKE RACE!
The 2015 Fat Bike Birkie Race held at Cable, Wisconsin, USA, on March 7th was once again the BIGGEST FAT BIKE RACE ON THE PLANET with over 800 registered racers (3/4s on the 47 Km loop and the rest on a 20 Km loop)!
Just like last year, it was a blast to race and capture the event on video … this year I used a $5 broomstick to raise my helmet-cam up to get a ‘high pan’ of the BIG FAT MASS of racers … kinda envious of the drone video guy though! 🙂
Fat Tire Biking continues to explode around the world and no where was it more evident than this past weekend at the Birkie Ski Trails complex, with just 2 days access for fat bike racers to check out the amazing trails, in great conditions (-5 C overnight and +2 at race end), expertly groomed by the American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation and all their organizers and volunteers!
The American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation once again but on a world class race event and handled the merry mass of fat bikers!
Definitely coming back next year and EVERY YEAR!
Last year’s Fat Bike Birkie Race weekend was a blast and racing with 535 Fat Bikers was super cool!
Capturing it with this video was all part of the fun …
Rumour has it there may be as many as 800 this year … oh yah – good times ahead!! 🙂
