PSA ♦ Kids, Teach your Parents to Derby

I’ve been noticing lately that when I attend local fat-bike gatherings, there are either very few participants or (gasp!) no derby, called – or celebrated.

Photos by Bob Rainville Jr. We are people in otherwise responsible positions with predictable lives in which we are used to guiding events to our will, who now, voluntarily subject ourselves to the elements, forces of nature and hard realities, of riding at the edge of the envelope of our abilities, physical power and endurance, in a chaotic […]
