86. Ice Ice Baby

MTB Kingston: The Kingston Snophy Fatbike Race Do do do, d'd'do-dew. Do do do, d'd'do-dew. I love the fatbiking.  Conditions?  Pfft.  Weather?  Pfft.  It doesn't matter, especially when I'm on my Cannondale FatCaad2.  Sure, when the weather and conditions are perfect, which rarely happens in Toronto, it's a sustained fatbikegasm.  But racing in less-than-perfect conditions … Continue reading 86.
