    You, of all people, like me, know that suicide is complex. Everyone reacts differently, regardless of their relationship with the deceased. I like what you have planned - a ride to remember him. I...

    With the snow we had this winter, and the fact that there is still 2feet of it in my yard, it will be June before the trails dry out enough here! Did do lots of fat biking this winter though.

    Let me investigate some of the gravel in relative proximity to you :). I assumed you were talking road bikes, where I would have tried for a 35mm or 40 mm tire. If you are planning on an MTB, then...

    I've been riding all winter - lots of fat bike riding on snow, and lots of cold temperatures.

    Jolt - this is normal. The snow right now is not the right consistency to make it easy going on the fat bikes. It needs to be harder packed than what is possible given the cold temps and fluffy...
