The latest offroad cycling rage is fat biking. Typically done on rigid mountain bikes with giant rims and tires for flotation on snow or sand, it offers another option for cyclists missing the dry trails or roads during the long winter months. Being the kind of community we are, a race series had to be created. Yesterday the course was on my local trail system so I came out (on skis) to shoot a few photos.

She makes it look fun!

A couple of dogs ran along with their owners. So it's a casual race.

I nicknamed this girl "Photogenic girl". Fun to photograph!

It was a beautiful day.

More photos here.

So it looked like a lot of fun, but I have to say it would be tough to ride on snow when I could ski it with less effort and more options. Still, I might have to give it a try one of these days...
