The Dose of Fat Ten Year Anniversary!

Ten years ago, the first installment of the Weekly Dose of Fat was published on fat dash bike dot com. It started as a weekly news digest that covered everything that was going on in the world of fat bikes. The Weekly Dose of Fat evolved into a podcast with a revolving eclectic cast of characters. We interviewed show guests that included a who’s who of the bike industry coupled with copious amounts of silliness. That podcast gave birth to a myriad of spin-off shows that continue to this day. The Dose of Fat is now a column that has come full circle back to a news digest about Fat, Plus, Klunker, Singlespeed, Bikepacking, Multi-Surface bicycles, riding, events, with the occasional reference to gnomes.

¡Muchisimas Gracias! to all of the folks out there that visit the site and a special thanks to our guests and everyone that worked on The Weekly Dose of Fat over the past decade!.
