And it was made possible thanks to these three!!
My oldest meet us at our house and we headed out around noon on Sunday. It should be noted he’s waiting on his new to him Trek 90D to be tuned up, so he can finally get aboard a trusty steed that fits him!!
Bikes and gear ready.
Thomas was looking for a new route to extend his riding…… I think we gave him what he’s looking for, and then some. 😉
Less than two miles in and a break was needed…. I had my doubts we’d make our 20 mile goal.
After everyone warmed up I was doubting for no reason!!
A lengthy stop at Lake NippleDick for some rock skipping and throwing…..
Here’s a good story…..
Two months or so ago CamelBak was asking for old CamelBak bags to be sent to them on their Facebook page….
I posted a picture of my 15 plus year old Trans Alp bag…. they asked if I’d send it in to be used in a new Camelbak ad campaign…. in return I could pick any bag and bottle to be sent to me for free!! One has to like a company like that….
Well Zack was in need of a new bag…. so this is the one he chose… the KUDU 12……
It saw it’s first action today…..
Of course, when asked…. the 12 year old said it was “ok.” LOL
Onward with the ride…..
This right here is the strongest FatBike rider under 10 years old I know!!!!! Yet again today she proved how mentally strong she is!! Proud of you Jenna!!
A quick stop under hwy 169 to feel the vibrations of cars passing overhead.
Then we continued on to some mudholes…… and I heard… “Dad can we ride through this puddle?” I said sure, but hold on a minute……
They’ve yet to master the up shifting when things get soft…. it’s all part of the learning curve!! Next time there will be different results I’m sure!!
"Look at my cut!!" 😉
Shortly after the mudholes it was more playtime on a sand pile…..
Then we headed to the bottom of the Glen mine pit….. which we decent on the Pie Burner ride….
While the water in this pit is anything but warm….. it has dropped 15-20′ since November 2015…. lots of cool places to ride a fatbike and explore, especially for children.
Then it was time to build some character…. via pushing your own fatbike!! These two kick ass!!
Reference that part earlier in this post about this young girl….. working through some “butt hurt” right here. 😉
“Butt hurt” break… by sitting down???? LOL
Then we hooked up with this women…. yeah, the one with the problem with that finger!!!???!!! 😉
Notice a little food and a couple sodas make the “butt hurt” go away!!! 😉
All in all I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon!!!
A 20 mile ride and good eats and a few beers to finish it off!!
Woot Woot 👍
