Weekly Dose of Internet Fat
The 2015 edition of the Global Fat-bike Summit will be held Jan 23rd-25th, 2015 in Jackson, WY. This is a pow-wow for land managers, resort owners and other trail user groups to discuss how to make fat-biking accessible to more people as well as a place for manufacturers to demo bikes to those same land managers who may need more info on fat-bikes. There are workshops on trail grooming as well. We’ll be there!
The Out Somewhere page has a Bolivian Adventure with Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid that will make you want to get your passport out
