Global Fatbike Day 2017

This year’s Global Fatbike Day is Saturday 2nd December. But you know that already, surely! (Or should that be Surly? I can hear the groans from here!) So this is just a little nudge, a poke, a chivvy along, an early reminder to get the date on your calendars and get a ride planned. Be it on your own, in pairs, or groups (we think that large group events are best), just make sure you get out and ride your fatbike. And don’t let us put...

The Hunt for White September

So…..it’s officially autumn in the Alps. This means that it’s finally quiet in town, work tapers as everyone goes away for inter-season and the trails are empty but…..unfortunately it also means that the lifts have stopped just as the first snow arrives at altitude – boo!

Under New Management!

You may have noticed that things have been a little quiet around here for the last few months (silent actually). Long-story-short: too busy with real (paid) work, a surprise move of house and the imminent arrival of a third child have meant that I’ve simply not had the time to dedicate to this wonderfully daft fatbike magazine project. It was looking like game over, until a bearded saviour in the form of your new Editor in Chief...

Bob’s Rovaniemi 150

Finally my hands are warm(ish), I’m somewhere on the last hill of the route. A street light appears over the brow of the hill, incongruous in the vast forest. Street light means road, road means end of the hard stuff, I cross and drop down to the Ounasjoki which will lead me to the finish. Suddenly the temperature plummets and in the 200 metres between the road and river my hands become blocks of ice. The next, final, checkpoint...
