Fat Bike Summit

Fresh Snow for Fat Bike Summit Race Day

I’ve spent the last week getting ready for the Fat Bike Summit in Island Park.   That means writing lists of things we need to bring, coordinating with caterers, checking the registrant list, meeting with Jay P and Fitzy.   Well, yesterday I loaded the car and headed north to the Sawtelle Resort in Island Park. I got there in time to pick up lunch and make sure we go extra lunches for all the extra people and get set up.   The Summit day of the weekend was a big success:  15 more folks than we expected, a warm reception to the idea of fat biking and great take aways for both land managers and advocates alike.

Winter Riding: How to Keep Your Head, Face, Hands & Feet Warm

Three Essentials to Keep Warm: Fitzy Beanie, Mont-Bell Headband, Buff

Cold temperatures and high pressure systems often bring the best in fat biking:  fast, firm trails with little fresh snow.   But it can be hard to motivate to go riding when the temperatures won’t rise above 10 degrees.  Keeping your hands and feet warm when on a bike is, let’s face it, a challenge.  Today we’re going to talk about how to keep your head, face, hands and feet warm when riding.   Don’t worry, we’ll talk about what to wear on your body in a later blog.

Why You Should Be Attending the Fat Bike Summit

Jay Petervary shares his thoughts on the 2nd Annual Winter Fat Bike Summit & Festival:

If you have been living in a closet, haven’t had much connection with the shop, or have taken a lot of LSD, you might not know this but the category of Fat Bikes is growing and growing rapidly!  The Fat Bike is basically a mountain bike modified to accept up to 4.7 inch wide tires (they seem to keep growing) which presents the ability to ride in places that a standard mountain bike could not.  Riding Fat Bikes on sand, snow, tundra, coastal areas, and chunky rock is all very doable and so much fun.  With the birth and drive of the Fat Bike being able to be ridden on snow packed trails such as snow machine trails and nordic centers we are now another user group to these trails. Some demographics like ours here surrounding the Tetons has thousands of these miles. (more…)
