We have a new rider to join the Fat Bike Mix…. Don has picked up a Norco Bigfoot, and for the price this bike is set up extremely nice! Definitely the best bang for the buck for sure, and the colour scheme black and blue was sharp too.
Our ride plan was to hit the snowmobile trail and see how far we could make it… The ride distance ended up being just shy of 18km, and the conditions were pretty good. Not as good as the xmas eve ride, but still not bad at all.
We did come across a few sleds, but not too bad. As long as you could find the good part of the trail, you could keep your speed and stay up on plain. Temperatures were fantastic, with a milder +2C which made you sweat a lot more, but still very comfortable.
All in all the ride went very well, and Don’s inaugural fat bike ride went very well! Just need more Fat Bikes to come out and ride with us.
Bern’s ski report: I wish I was on a bike.
