Fatbikes in Summer?

Do you ride your fatbike all year?

Fatbikes are often associated with snow, and adventure rides in winter.  They are also great fun in summer.  Their stability and huge tires make trail and even paved riding a good time year ’round.

If you ride a fatbike, does it sit on the sidelines in the summer, or how are you using it?  Please post your stories so others can be inspired by or live vicariously through your fatbike stories.

Also, don’t forget that we’re trying to organize the Fatbike Frozen Forty (Triple F) in February 2012.  If you’re interested in helping as a sponsor (great opportunity for bike shops, bike manufacturers, and gear/clothing vendors), drop us an email or comment.

Or, if you’re interested in riding or want to suggest a fun 40-mile route in or near the Twin Cities MN metro area, let us know while this is still in the planning stages – without your help this won’t happen.
