Foto Gordo – Wednesday Looks Stumped

This week’s Friday foto stoke is a Wednesday, out on Great Salt Lake near Antelope Island State Park in the Bee Hive State.

Fat-bikes take us to wild and desolate places…..sometimes, surprisingly close to […]

Foto Gordo ♦ Sea of Grass

Foto Gordo ♦ Arizona Winter

Todd Wright sent us this great shot from the valley of the sun, Phoenix Arizona! It sure doesn’t look like winter in Wisconsin!

Mono-syllabically known to cyclists everywhere as Bjorn, my gnomefest cousin (twice removed) Bjorn, took this shot at the Hitching post during the Arrowhead 135 last month.

Our old friend RickyD got in a quick lunch ride this week and captured this shot on his I-Phone. The shot sort of encapsulates one of the intangible elements of what makes fat-biking so enjoyable.
