The 2016 Pie Burner Thanksgiving Weekend FatBike Ride 

This year’s ride was a huge hit; even with conditions that were less than ideal. 

Almost 2.5′ of snow the week before ride day; the most snow since the Halloween blizzard of ’91…. then temps never dipping much below freezing, made conditions that were less than optimal.

Still, 37 rider’s showed up with awesome aditudes, not surprising knowing the fatbike crowd.

I really CAN NOT say thank you enough to all the rider’s!! 

Also, my family and the volunteers came through with flying colors to make year 4 of the Pie Burner go off without a hitch!!

A tip of the hat to you all!!
Below is only a fraction of photo’s taken mostly by our 13 year old Zack; who has shown he may have a future behind the camera lens!! Thanks Z!!

I’d like to thank all the sponsor’s for their generosity… but a special shout out to Surly Bikes, you all were more than generous!! THANK YOU!!
And as always Sandy and Palmers Tavern did an outstanding job host all us fatbike freaks!! 

The quality human beings that attend this event always blows my mind!!! 

It shouldn’t be that way, but as long as it stays…. we’ll keep putting on this ride!! 

One Brian Hatsly getting recognized for being the driving force behind this ride on the 4th ride year!! Thanks to MBR for donating the gallon flask. Beside this here guy being a solid human… he’ll also put this gallon flask to good use!!
