Fri Night Fat Bike Trail Ride – Picture Perfect!

With snow melting temperatures on the way, this past Friday night’s trail ride at Assiniboine Park and Forest was billed as a last chance for us Winnipegger fat bikers to  trail ride on snow.  Today the snow is melting and our prediction is coming true.
So, how was Friday night’s ride? … Picture Perfect!

Fat Bike Night Ride 4 Apr 14 - Handle Bar

As you can see by these screen caps and the smiles on all ten of our faces (while riding and as we relaxed at Joe Black’s Café) after 2 & 1/2 hours of cruising pathways and carving up snow packed single track!  Good times and worth of a snappy video.   But for now, check out the gallery:
