Maple Hill

Last Friday saw me skipping out of work at lunch, hooking up with a buddy and hitting up our local single-track for a couple hours. 
The boys who've worked on the single-track at Maple Hill have done a HELL of a job with the trails up there!! 
Kudos to you guys!!! 
Rocky technical, bust you up good if you're not paying attention 100% of the time, kind of riding!! 
Anyway, here's a couple shots of us taking a break and catching our breath before we headed for home!! 
Fat and Fatter respectfully!! ;)

Pedal On!!

After Nearly 20 Years....

There's finally a push for a local mountain biking club!! 
I for one, couldn't be happier!!!
This new club is revolving around the talk of Cuyuna type trails right here in good old Hibbing. 

Here's an email I recieved the other day, along with an impressive list of other people who are interested in helping to get the wheels turning on an IMBA affiliated club for our town. 

Pedal On!!


We are all set for our first bike club meeting:

Tuesday May 28th 6:30 PM

Labor Quarters in the Hibbing Memorial Building


Some of the discussion topics will include (but not limited to):

-Becoming an IMBA chapter

-The Hibbing Mountain Bike Park (Redhead) project


Please feel free to forward this information to anyone interested in building, maintaining, or riding mountain bike trails.


The group ride is cancelled tonight due to the wet conditions.

Carey Lake and Back

Mom and Jenna were at the last big dance practice, before the big end of the year show.... so Zack and I took a nice easy pedal to our local lake. 
10 miles and an hour and forty minutes later we were back home. 
Here's a few snapshots.

Snack time.

Fat Bike and Rock Throwing

Always is a good combo. 
Jenna had dance, and soccer after that, so Zack and I headed out for a couple hour pedal and of course the great past time of throwing rocks!! :)
Z came close to riding home with one shoe!!! Lol
8 miles later we are sitting at Jenna's soccer practice.
Here's some cell phone pic. I keep forgetting the real camera. 
Sorry Bruce...... ;)

Fatty Goes to School

I spent the morning at the school, for the "Bike Rodeo."
The kids did some bike handling skills; pedaling through some spray painted courses on the parking lot.
All got new helmets, and a certificate of completion; plus some well deserved snacks.
All of them did very well, being the temp was hanging right around 30 degrees!!!
May 1st and early winter temps!!??
Enough already!!!
Anyway, here's some crappy cell phone pictures.
Oh yeah, I got a good 26 mile ride in for the beginning of the 2013 N.B.C. before I dropped my bike at my LBS.
Pedal On!!!
