Thanksgiving Fat Bike Ride

Lets ride some fat bikes Thanksgiving morning. The traditional ride I've always done on Thanksgiving from the old train depot at the falls has become too much of a race. Also, I'm not sure how it will go, given the route follows the river bottom trail which is very sandy (good for us) and most of the riders now ride cross bikes. The route I'm planning will do some of the stuff  we had to leave out on the Fat Bike Adventure Ride we did a few weeks ago.  This ride will not have any water (maybe), we should stay dry. Ride will leave from Cliff Fen Park/Skyland Playground in Burnsville at 8:00 am. Plan on about four hours and 30 miles. Sorry no ropes this time, expect light bush waking, and about 3 miles of road riding (also 2 miles of abandoned road). Bring snacks and water, switch  phazers from stun to kill mode, no kooks.  Directions From 35W in Burnsville, Exit at Cliff Road, head east 1/4 mile, take left into large parking lot at playground.   http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ll=44.784576,-93.275771&spn=0.02318,0.028024&t=m&z=15&vpsrc=6&iwloc=lyrftr:m,14865446077610238238,44.788232,-93.275042

  3. Hi, just discovered your blog and it's great! Hoping I can join on a FAT ride once I get my new Pugs built. I wanted to ask if you or anyone else reading this have any recommendations on specific components that work really well or those that don't, such as double vs triple cranksets, rim and tire combinations, etc. I understand that now there are many more options.

    Thanks much!!
