I was working in Bath yesterday and made a stop at Bath Cycle, where Bikeman sends bikes, parts, and accessories all over the world. This year, Bikeman moved over 100 fat tire bikes out the door. I bought my Surly Pugsley from them last year and can’t stay off it, even in the summer months. These bikes were designed for snow.
I would be heading over there to ride this weekend, but I’m still following doctor’s orders in healing up from a hernia repair exactly three weeks ago. I’m in deep mourning without my bike underneath me.
A number of those bikes are headed to East Burke, Vermont to check out the winter Kingdom Trails. Here’s the demo fleet Carver bikes put together by the shop to stock Bikeman’s booth: Eye candy for sure.
It looks to be a fine weekend weather-wise, with sun and glorious snow pack to ad to the draw.
From the Kingdom Trails web site:
“…Kingdom Trails has partnered with MTBVT.com to arrange for a day of mountain bike revelry. On March 9th we will be gathering early in the day to lead a charge against Old Man Winter. Group rides for all ability levels will be guided from the Kingdom Trails Nordic Center. Bring whatever bike you wanna ride… there will be a route for everyone from Fat Bike Singletrack Fanatics to “Just wanna get out there and ride my bike” Riders. There will be free Fat Bike Demo’s and rental bikes available as well as yummy snacks hot totties and cold beer. The Market Café will be offering lunch…”
