Global Fatbike Day: Kettle Moraine Edition

ML and I head to the John Muir Trails in the Kettle Moraine State Forest on December 1 for the inaugural Global Fat-bike Day. I rode the Ox, of course.

Gomez and crew — from fat-bikes.com — put together a great little fat-fest that drew about 55 riders on all manner of fat-bikes for a few hours of trail riding followed by the grilling of meats and the drinking of beers.

I can safely say that it was one of the funnest bike days I’ve had in a long time, and it reminded me a lot of what mountain-biking events and races were like when I was a young’un.  That is, a relaxed bunch of people riding bikes, drinking beer, eating grilled meat, and bullshitting.

Damn fine riding in the Kettles too–something that I need to do more often.
