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...
