Fat Camp #8 – getting ready for winter

Winter still is having a hard time to get a grip up here. Last weekend we finally had some snow but it rained away a few days later. This in-between season is killing me. Right now it is freezing up again and the ice is slowly building up. There is really nothing to do but browse the interwebs for inspiration. I tuned in to the last episode of Fat-bike.com´s awesome show Fat Camp. Ken and Andy sure knows there shit and if you are fat bike tech interested tune in. It´s a very, very good show.

In this episode the talk about how to get your fatty ready for winter riding. Lots of good stuff here.

Have a listen and get ready. Winter is coming!

November rain

This time of year. There is just no room for inspiration to do anything. November is by far my hate month. The darkness of the winter is here but no snow. Just rain and fog. We were blessed with a stunning October with 140 sun hours. That´s more than July. It seamed like the winter was coming early with crispy cold sunny days. I managed to squeeze in a few rides.

But now it´s just a mix of dark and grey. Well, well instead we painted the kids rooms and got some shit done back at our house.

I´m just waiting now, for winter. Can´t wait to get out on the frozen sea with the fat bike. This year i´ve promised myself to do a proper overnighter out on one of the islands far out in the archipelago. Also the Ore trail or Iron trail is on the to do list. If February shows her best side with loads of snow and cold temperatures i´d love to give it a shot.

And one more thing my white queen is getting a new crown. But i´ll get back to that later.
