This coming weekend in Homer, Alaska, some friends of ours in the Homer Cycling Club are putting on their first ever Big Fat Bike Festival.
It pains me to type this as I know I won't be there to participate and enjoy all the good things that place has to offer. They've got a lot of cool stuff planned, and of course the whole event is based on those beautiful things we call fatbikes. Check out their event website here.
If you are in the area, or can get to Homer for the event, I highly encourage you to attend. Good people will take care of you. Good food will be eaten. And good riding will be had.
While neither Jason or I can be there, but we did take part in a little ride of our own this past Thursday up north in, and near, Duluth. Not quite the same as being in Homer, but pretty dang fun all the same.
Jason and Hansi and a fantastic sky...

Hansi and the last light of day...
We've sent up a bunch of nice schwag for those of you that make it to the Big Fat Bike Festival. Enjoy it all, and know that there are at least two very jealous Minnesotan's wishing they were there...and probably many more.

I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.
