I AM FAT - January 12, 2013

Postby Rage » Tue Dec 18, 2012 11:31 pm

If you're the type of person who is hedging your bets that the world might not end this Friday, we have the event for you:

Iowa's Annual Majestic Fat-ride Around Trueblood

Here's the skinny:

What: Fatbike Enduro - 3hr, 3 person team or solo
When: January 12, 2013 12:00 - 3:00pm (registration starts at 10am)
Where: Trueblood Recreation Area, Iowa City
Who: Anyone with a fatbike, or anyone who wants to ride a fatbike. You don't need to own a fatbike to participate, we've got you covered! (I know, it's what we do.)
Why: Like I said, it's what we do.

But wait, there's more: Salsa Cycles Demo Crew will be there with fatbike a-plenty!
**** Presented by World of Bikes ****

More information coming anon.

I'll be there with a couple other fellas. Hopefully it won't be too muddy and wet after the rain that is forecast.

My team has bailed. I'll still be there, but if anyone would like to partner, let me know. I'm not sure I've got 3 hours of riding in me!

I was going to go. But then I got the stomach flu and figured it might be a good idea to stay home! Hope everyone has fun!! Drink a few for me!

What a great turnout, thanks to everyone who showed up! Well beyond our expectations (close to 90 riders), and the weather took a turn in our favor and firmed up the soft sections to serve up a sweet course. Awesome stuff. Gonna have to do this again!
