New Year’s La Salle River Fattie Ride

Tom Kolesnik’s Post:

What better way to ring in 2016 than a great fat bike ride on the La Salle River!

I met up with my old riding buddy/new fat biker Brian Dyck, plus Dallas Sigurdur and Dan Lockery, who were finishing their own out & back on the La Salle from La Barriere Park. We three rode to La Barriere on our own, except for a few friendly snowmobilers (thanks for packing the river folks :-)). 

The ride back to La Salle on the reverse route was uneventful, except for the crisp bright scenery.

Fat Dan’s Post:

re you looking for another opportunity to test out your winter riding setup?  Lindsay is planning a ride on the La Salle river starting from La Barriere Park at 10am tomorrow morning (January 2).  The plan is to head West along the river for about an hour and a half and then come back along the same route with a potential stop to get a bite to eat in La Salle on the way home.

All are welcome, so if you are interested in coming out, we will be meeting at the parking lot in La Barriere Park (@10am), just past the bridge, heading South on Waverley.

The last time I was riding out there with FatHal a couple of weeks ago the conditions were pretty fast with only a fine dusting of snow.  I’m guessing not much has changed except the snow might have a hard crust on top of it due to warmer weather melt and then freezing again.

Hope to see you out there!
