I didn't actually know it was global fatbike day until I checked instagram after dinner :) But let's call it that.

So many great old mining roads to ride on the fatbike south of Moab and I thought I'd sell the fatbike when I sold my place in CO.

I like sand and desert riding better than snow riding, so a fat bike would be ideal in Moab.

Saw these two intrepid travelers on my way home today. I do not know what they are up to, but I bet it’ll be great.

Looking at their bikes, I'd say they've latched onto the gravel bike craze. Modern looking bikes with flared drop bars, & plenty of frame spacing for running wide tyres. The treads even look dirty on a couple of the close up shots, so they've ventured off the seal somewhere :)

It was more the climbing helmet one was wearing and the other with a climbing helmet strapped to his backpack. Shenanigans are on their menu.

So due to my ongoing rehabilitaion & physio, I'm simply not getting the time to go proper mountain biking as much as I'd like. I feel kinda weird cruising along shared bike/walking paths and such, tyres howling as they chew themselves up, so I slipped on a set of 2" tubeless slicks. Very much like. Smooth, quiet, & surprisingly good grip in the current dry, rocky, sandy & gravel conditions around here at the moment. Does my mates heads in when I turn up with slicks for a more adventurous bush ride too :roflmao::roflmao:

This solo ride got a tad too adventurous, started off ride 50 meters, lift over a log or two, ride a bit more, until after about a km or so, ended up plain old hike a bike. Bush got too thick to get an assembled bicycle through, so consulted Google earth, back tracked a bit, & climbed up out of the gully & found the closest track. Still good fun though :)
