November 3rd 2016 update….
3 Saturday’s left… not counting ride day.
Are you getting excited?
A bit apprehensive?
Are you asking yourself.. “Do I really want to drive up to BFE and ride my #fatbike??”
I get it…. when we started this ride, now 4 year’s ago… we knew this was a funky weekend. If you the rider can attend, great…. if not… also great.
Attendance is dictated by the long holiday weekend, and family plans.
If you are willing to venture north, south… east or west; you will not be disappointed… well, I think so anyway. 😉
Obviously I’m a bit biased in this regard. 😉
Our little part of #northernminnesota is special, and quite possibly…. the perfect area to ride your fatbike during this particular time of year.
A few words on what you should make sure to carry with you…..
#1. extra tubes…. have 1 fresh tube tucked away with you…. just in case.
It’s much easier to swap tubes out than doing a trail side patch.
#2. Water… bring more than you think you’ll need. There will be a cooler of water at the half way point for refills.
#3. A good attitude towards adventure and exploration. If you’re attending… this isn’t a hard ask.
#4. Food. We will be making plenty of stops. Either to allow people to regroup before moving forward; or to take in the abundant scenic overlooks I’ll be leading you to. These stops are a good opportunity to munch on your favorite trail food item’s.
#5. A camera and or your cell phone. For the majority of you rider’s this will be a totally new riding experience, in a truly unique area. You’ve been warned!! 😉
Also, we’ll pedal as fast as our slowest rider. We as a group WILL NOT care how slow you ride… please keep this in mind as a group.
Above anything else this ride is about FUN and exploring (I know I say this a lot) a truly unique area to ride your fatbike.
I think that’s about it.
Please, if you have any questions…. fire away; I’ll try to answer any question to the best of my ability.
The next update will be on ice thickness, a few days before ride day. If ice thickness is less than 5″ we will not be riding on frozen water. So keep your fingers crossed for some cold nights!! 😉
Until then, be safe….. and see you all before you know it!!
