Global Fatbike Day Ride—2015

We headed up to Pine Hollow up American Fork Canyon for a Global Fatbike Day ride, along with about 40 other riders. There are some great singletrack trails up there that have been packed out and ridden and they were in great shape on Saturday. There were probably 30 people in the parking lot at […]

White Friday—Riding the Mirror Lake Highway

Wednesday night Bullet and I went up to Round Valley in Park City and did a wonderful night ride in the snow. It was our first snow ride of the season. Conditions were excellent with 2 inches of powder over the dirt trails. It was cold but a great ride and we covered 9 miles. While […]

Back to Strawberry Narrows

Last August we did an overnight bikepacking trip to the great Strawberry Narrows trail at Strawberry Reservoir. On that trip we had an epic storm with heavy rain and winds.

Moab: Kane Creek-Pritchett Canyon Bikepack

Fatbike Brigade Winter Rando #2: Hobble Creek, Right Fork

December Randonnee Report—Soapstone Basin

We had a large group of fatbikers join us on December 20 for our first Winter Randonnee ride. We counted 22 riders at the parking lot, but I think a few showed up later and headed up. We had all skill levels, including some training for JayP’s Backyard Pursuit 200k race next month. They had […]
