The Fat Awakens

Guess what, winter sucks! Dark, cold and snowy. I'm freezing and don't wanna go outside any more. Naaaw... I'm just kidding. Winter is awesome and it's me who's been lazy the last two months.

Winter is having a firm grip on our little arctic town. Loads of snow and handleable temperatures has made the the first weeks of 2018 pretty nice. It's still early in the season but the archipelago is calling and i need to get out there. Both me and Andreas had The Wednesday off and we… Continue reading Isle of Snow

Getting out there

Ice been covering the bay for a few weeks now. But heavy snowfall followed by low temperatures makes conditions a bit difficult.

The Emerald Fat Bike Connection – Part five, Life’s a beach

Wicklow is a mountainbike Mecca. They host the EWS series in Ireland and there¬īs trail centers and local trails every where.

Mind the gap

Living in a part of the world where we get proper seasons is pretty sweet. Bright warm summers and cold dark winters makes one appreciate things a little bit more. I love the contrasts of beach riding and going far out on frozen water with just months in between. The only time of year that… Continue reading Mind the gap
