Charlie, I've seen the video of you guys riding this hill in the early days. Very cool and how nice to have someone do what this filmmaker did by featuring you as he has. You deserve that!

I just want to personally thank you for your vision and pioneering spirit! I didn't discover the absolute blast of mountain biking until 4 years ago and now I'm hooked. I tell people that my fatty is like a time machine because when I hit the trails on it I'm immediately transformed into a 15 year old kid again.

Thank you, sir!

Sunday's ride with a friend from his home in South Minneapolis to Theodore Wirth Park for some single-track on our fat-bikes.

Cool, Onek pal!

Two recent rides:
1) first one includes a lot of climbing, probably too much, coz' my back hurts the next day or two.


2) this one is kinda longish (15 mins), riding along brushy creek trails on my latest rocknroad build.

Weisan my friend...thanks for the videos. I hope your friend wasn't too badly shaken up by his crash on the downhill.

It looks like your riding friends have fully embraced the flashing white front lights. I should probably as well. It's not getting any easier out there with all of the distracted drivers.

Thanks again for your input to this thread. My wish is that more people would post videos of their rides and give us all a look at what they're experiencing.

I finally made it out to the mountain bike trails at Elm Creek (on the north end of the Minneapolis metro area) last week. It's an 82 mile round trip but I so thoroughly enjoyed myself on Friday that I went back up there Sunday morning.

I don't typically mess with skinnies but a friend of mine encouraged me to try. I'm glad I did because they're actually quite challenging and a lot of fun, especially when snow covered.

Kevin, you should post the link regarding your' riding experience' on Judge Judy. I've watched it several times and found your calmness refreshing.

I enjoyed watching!!!! Another dog off leash and the owners finding fault with you, that's a must. Glad they paid for their foolishness.

I got together with two friends for a 51 mile fatbike ride on Saturday. We toured the cities of Minneapolis and St Paul.

Check it out!

Thanks, Weisan my friend!

Our trails are currently off limits while the temp is above freezing and there's a big melt happening so we took to the roads. There's snow on the way along with much colder temps so I'll be back in the woods soon enough!
