Wow. Just wow.
Global Fatbike Day celebrations here in St. John’s just continue to grow and become increasingly popular. In fact, we didn’t just celebrate with a day, we celebrated with a long weekend. Here’s the quick version of how things went down here:
- Thursday night: Fun ‘n’ Fast hosts an open house;
- Friday: Mother Nature blesses us with 25 cm of fresh snow;
- Saturday: group ride with beers and burgers after;
- Sunday: huge turnout for our public event in Pippy Park.
Fun ‘n’ Fast gets the weekend rolling!
After the 25 cm of snow on Friday a small group of us met at Steve H’s on Saturday to celebrate the official Global Fatbike Day.
When in doubt, let it out. Soft conditions on Saturday meant looooow tire pressures.

Sunday was the big event!
Canary Cycles and Cychotic brought lots of bikes for people to demo and drew huge crowds to their tent. That baby blue Stache 5 was the bike I really wanted to see. 29+ is in my future.
Fun ‘n’ Fast had bikes for people to demo up at North Bank Lodge.
More than 40 people were on hand for the group ride around Pippy Park. Thanks to the efforts of Ross, Darren and Steve we had groomed trails to ride on.
This year’s ride even included a celebrity sighting – Jason Momoa.
A pause in the woods to catch our breath.
