Substance Projects, a Fatbike, Some Candles, and Georgian Nordic Well you can't beat that combination. I mean it would be impossible to beat that combination, right?

Rainmageddon It was not a good start to the day. The forecast called for 50 to 75mm of rain, starting in the morning, followed by a deep freeze. Rain does not melt the snow on trails, it makes ice.

Nonetheless, there I was in a frigid garage, trying to keep my heart rate down so … Continue reading 84. Albion Fatbike Festival

Tracy is wickedly cool. She's fearless, boss, and never hesitates to bring it. I'm a jerk. She was hoping to see me last year … Continue reading FOTC: Tracy Roth Gobbles the Fat Turkey
Uh Oh, It's March Break Week 5 started with a BANG. We planned to go away for the break, so I hadn't thought much about the Substance Projects/Cannondale/Hardwood Fatbike Race, but my daughter was sick, and we found ourselves housebound. So, I activated my usual policy about bike races: If there's a race, and I … Continue reading 8 Weeks: Week 5
