The first post on RideFatbikes.com was almost a year ago – March 18, 2011. The original goal in developing this site was to get the word out about how much fun it can be to ride fatbikes (hence the name “Ride Fatbikes”). Since then, we’ve grown to a dramatically larger readership (over 7300 visitors last month compared to an average of 60 visitors/month in the first few months), we’ve developed/hosted/promoted the Fatbike Frozen Forty (triple F), we’ve launched the Fatbike Gallery, the Fatbike Library, and a Gear and Reviews section. We’ve had guests posts, reader-contributed stories, and event/race recaps from readers, racers, and riders from all over the country, and we’ve tried to keep the content fresh.
That said, by no means do we have it all figured out. Instead, as we approach the one-year anniversary of RideFatbikes.com, we’d like to try modifying (and hopefully improving) the format of this site. Some of our most popular posts and stories have been those submitted by readers and guest contributors, so we’d like to do more of that. We’ve found that while people like to know about races, rides, and adventures that are happening in their area, they also like to share stories about their own personal experiences at a race/ride or even their own solo fatbike adventure story. Good stories and good adventures make for good reading.
The community of people who ride fatbikes has grown exponentially in recent years, and we hope it will continue to grow exponentially more in years to come. We want RideFatbikes.com to serve that community by offering a place to share your fatbike stories, adventures, and more. As our format changes, so may our site. In the meantime, please feel free to comment on new pages or posts you see developing, check out and comment on our Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Ride-Fatbikes/236605043077212), follow us on Twitter (@RideFatbikes), submit your photo for the Fatbike Gallery, or simply Contact Us and share a post or story you’d like to see included here.
It’s a lot of fun to ride fatbikes, and it’s a lot of fun to see what other fatbike riders have to say about their adventures. Please feel free to make this site your forum for sharing the stories about how, where, and why you ride fatbikes.
