I took a quick trip around to the other side of Lake Michigan to shoot pictures at the Barry Roubaix last Saturday. I saw a lot of our fat-bike friends over in Michigan and you may have seen Danielle Musto’s recount of the race that we published on Monday. I wanted to share the fat-bike podium with our readers and extend a hearty congratulations to the victors!

More Fat Sightings
I also ran into Jeff Carek & Seth Kleinglass riding the Fat Mother Trucker that we shared in our Reader’s Ride(s) column back in February. I saw fat-bikes all over the place and got quite a few shots of racers at the start and out on the course. I chatted with our amigos at 616 about some things that they have in the pipeline that I can’t quite share with you all, just yet. I received confirmation from our amigo, Nate Phelps, from Central District Cyclery in Grand Rapids, that he’ll be hosting a beach race out of Grand Haven on April 20th – Stand by for further details on that!
