Super congratulations to Dan Lockery and David Ristau for conquering this year’s Tuscobia 160 Winter Ultra Fatbike Race – both on the podium!! Dan finished 2nd in 19:17 and David 3rd in 20:40! Results HERE
Word is that the high humidity and frigid temps were a big challenge for many (high DNF rate), but our local MB tough dudes rose to the challenge!
So Charles made a nice video of Lindsay leading him around the little fat bike trail he has created in and around Crescent Drive park in Winnipeg. Lindsay would like others to enjoy them and of course that will also help keep them packed (bonus – eh!).
** CAUTION: DON’T RIDE ON ANY XC SKI TRACKS YOU MAY FIND IN THE PARK! **
Check out Charles’ video:
Charles had a few trail entry pointers:
“End of Holly (16 seconds) cross over South Drive, down the trail, go right, go right. If you are on Crescent drive enter right at the corner of of the chain link fence (47 seconds). If you park in the east parking lot – follow the trail on the north side of the parking lot (stay off the ski tracks) (1:20). I think there is also an entryway from crescent drive along the fence between the park and Thermëa.”
Have fun and say thanks to Lindsay if you see him! 🙂
Once again our 6th Annual Winnipeg Global Fat Bike Day Ride was a blast, with more than 55 riders taking part and having casual fun and connecting while riding and sharing stories over hot chili and drinks! 🙂
Check it out:
Thanks again to Gregory ‘G-Mac’ McNeill for the great pics (especially our ‘iconic’ group picture), to my Lori K who hosted the chilifest (sore wrist precluded riding this year) and our ride organizers and guides Keith Holm, Guy Anthony and ‘Lou Fatinski’. 🙂
Seriously, ya need to get out to Woodcock Cycle Works on Thursday nights at 6:00 PM for a snappy and fun group fat bike ride. All ya need (besides a fatbike and some lights) is to be a WCW club member or have an MCA license and sign a waiver.
I had a blast ‘Hanging Loose’ with them on the trails and paths for a few hours and following Nicolas’ lead … check it out:
Once again our 6th Annual – 2017 Winnipeg Global Fat Bike Day Ride had more than 55+ local fatbikers out for a fun ride on trails, pathways and even the frozen Seine River, plus a chilifest get-together to swap fatbiking stories, make new friends and plan upcoming adventures!
Great fun times thanks to our official photographer Gregory C. McNeill and volunteers ride guides Keith Holm, Guy Anthony and ‘Lou Fatinski’.
Here’s the STORY OF THE RIDE THROUGH PICTURES …

Until next year … let’s keep ‘Rolling our Fatties’! 🙂
Quick feedback from my GFBD Route Recce today – IT’S LOOKING GREAT!
The trails, pathways, quiet roads and even the Seine River is actually better than a few days ago!
That small amount of snow we got recently has mostly bonded to the previous snow and ice to create okay conditions on the trails and paths. The Seine River is looking very nice!
Here’s a photo dump from my recce today and a few from yesterday as well – click on the pics to start a slideshow:
So giddy up – saddle up on your ‘Fatties’ tomorrow, join the fun at the Forks at 12:00 Noon, check out everyone bikes and make new friends!
Oh yah, if you get ‘peck-ish’ after riding for an hour or so after the photoshoot, we have a chilifest arranged at a fatbiker friendly home near Kingston Park. Afterwards, your can ride down Kingston Crescent to the Elm Park (BDI) Bridge and access the Churchill Drive Pathways and trails right back to the Forks (about 30 minutes).
