Fat Photo of the Month: Rider and his Dog

* So it’s been quite a while since I posted a Fat Photo of the “Week” and it’s been a busy winter; I believe it’s time to move to a new sustainable posting category – the Fat Photo of the “Month”.

So here you are … the “Fat Photo of the Month“: ‘Rider and his Dog‘ – Our very own prolific Grand Marais area fatbiker Dave Cushnie with his dog on Lake Winnipeg – beauty!

Thursday Night Fatbike Rides from Woodcock Cycle Shop

Everyone had a great ride last Thursday night! We left the Woodcock shop at about 7 p.m. (after showing up for 6:30), rode North shadowing the Seine (because the river is not frozen yet), through Whittier heading East, over Esplande Riel, to the Forks, then back south on the East side of the Red River to the St. Vital Bridge, and back to the shop on St. Mary’s. Check with Woodcock Cycle, but there should be consistent rides every Thursday leaving the Shop at 6:30 PM (or 6:00 – check with them), with varying routes. woodcockcycle.com
