Happy St. Valentines Day!
It snowed in Tokyo for the first time in 18 years, so I pinged our amigos at Blue Lug to see if they all got out on their fat-bikes and Wakako sent me back some great pictures.
The line-up of sponsors for the Fat-Bike.com, US National Fat-Bike Championship – (Fat-Bike Birkie) After Party is starting to grow. 9 :Zero:7, Fatback, Borealis Fat Bikes, Boo Bicycles, 45NRTH, 1 Up USA racks, Paul Components and Angry Minnow Brewing have all joined fat-bike dot com and the Rivers Eatery in a celebration that will help raise funds for the expansion of fat-bike specific trails in the nearby Chequamegon National Forest.Two dollars from every Angry Minnow River Pig Pale Ale purchased will be donated to the Namekagon Fat Bike Club and there will also be a jighnormous, opulent, raffle of prizes donated by our generous sponsors. We will, literally have more fun than a keg of gnomes! Stay tuned for more info about this historic little celebration in the coming weeks!
All of you kids have been so great with sending your uncle gomez, incredible photos of your fat-bike fun, so I’ve added a gallery below the news links to celebrate your efforts! Don’t be shy about contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
