POSTED BY VC CREW - It's that time of year. The snow is beginning to fly up high and we're thinking about fatbikes, as is probably evident from the last several blog posts. It's also time to think about fatbike events, and we've been working on the event calendar. Here's the latest scoop:
1) Just added: Intro To Fatbiking & Iceland Fatbike Slideshow: Thursday, December 4, 6:30pm @ Velorution Cycles! Join Joey from VC, Brett from Salsa Cycles, & Andrew from Bedrock Bags for an evening of fatbike goodness. We get a lot of questions about those "big tires" - what they're for, where they're used, and more techy questions as well. We'll cover all these questions and more, and have a whole bunch of different fatbikes for you to see and learn about. After a brief intro and Q&A, Brett from Salsa Cycles will regale us with tales and photos of his recent trip to Iceland, where he spent three weeks riding his Salsa Mukluk fatbike around the largest glacier on that island. We'll have snacks - BYOB if you'd like!
2) The event everybody is always asking about: The Third Annual Fatbike & Ugly Sweater Rally. This will happen again this year. We would just like to have some snow first. So bear with us and keep an ear to the ground, because we'll set a date ASAP!
3) We're sponsoring the Nordic Center's Fatbike Race Series again this year, and we're finalizing dates with the folks slightly north. Turns out they have a busy Nordic race schedule, but we will have some dates in there too! Stay posted...
