My First “Proper” Fatbike Ride

I have been a self-declared cycling widow for the last five years.

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!
