Last week we celebrated the official Imperial Fat-Bike Riders Group season opener with a cook-out. The Imperial Fat-bike Riders Group is merely a title given to the group I created on facebook ( after the Legend went AWOL) so a small handful of us could communicate as to where we'll meet for rides.

Steak, hobo dinners, and a massive pan of veggies
 Typically, we get together on Wednesday night during the months of September through March. Although the rides started back in September we wanted to wait for all the bugs to die and the temps to drop a bit before having our cook-out. Sitting around a fire when it's warm and having mosquitoes bite you while trying to enjoy a hobo dinner is a bitch.

  So far the rides have been really good and different by having members of the group pick a venue for a ride they want to share or lead. All we need now is snow, frozen lakes and rivers so we may bask in our righteous glory upon our rolling thrones of fatness. For we are the Imperial Fat-Bike Riders.  I'm just kidding, anyone is welcome to join us and have some fun on ANY bike. Also we usually hit up a local food establishment after the ride just to round off the evening. Drop me a message at the bottom if you live in the area and would like to ride with us. ................

This was a rainy, cold night several weeks ago when we took to the streets of MPLS instead of destroying our bikes and the trails
