a fat day out

Dan has finally built up his fat bike and he needed a long ride to test it out. Best to do this on familiar trails and luckily we have a few locally and the wet muddy conditions were perfect, The fat bikes are very at home in the mud. To make things more pleasant Dan was also testing a fat bike front mudguard for www.themudhugger.co.uk  and what a difference it made! I was splattered down my front by mud, my jersey and face covered but Dan was virtually as clean as when he left his house, looks lie another top product by the Mudhugger guys.
As it was Dan’s first ride on the fatty we did a long route over, Lickey, Waseley and up to clent, unlike last week the cafe was open and we took advantage of a hot drink and flapjack before beginning the long descent and the more technical way back. The bikes were ideal in what at times was almost axle deep mud & I think Dan really liked his, it seemed to bring out his inner child.
