Wallpaper Wednesday – Pugs in the Mist

Simon aka: Super Domestique supplied this week’s Wallpaper Wednesday from across the pond. Here’s what he had to say about his photo. Given the callout for wallpaper worthy pics, I’m hoping my Pugs in the mist might be good enough to fit the bill! It’s not the most up to date pic as the Pugs […]

It really brought back memories of the trip that James Healy and I took across the top of Michigan’s Upper Penninsula and exemplifies the sort of terrain for which fat-bikes transcend every other form of bicycle. This week’s photo was taken in the UK […]

Fat (video) Tuesday – Frensham

Tomorrow is the first day of Winter on the earth’s northern hemisphere, so that make’s this Yule’s Eve; or as your favorite cable TV meteorologist might refer to as the winter solstice. I like to say it’s the shortest day of the year (even though each day is 24 hours long, more or less). The […]

Hills and Beaches
