Our Global Fatbike Day ride was a rip-roaring success! Participation was up 1000 per cent from last year when one very lonely yet dashingly handsome fatbiker braved the elements at Cape Spear. This year there were ten cyclists at the start of the ride and lots of different fatbikes were represented: Surly, 9:zero:7, Salsa and Norco.
Conditions were damp yet spirits were high as we rode the trails of Shoal Bay Road for some 18 km.
A group picture before we got dirty.

Carbon fiber goodness.

Break time at the ocean.
