Getting FAT this winter....

After a few weeks in Costa Rica I assumed we'd come back to Squamish in winter's grip. Quite the opposite was the case as winter took a long vacation this year. With no snow and way above average freezing levels it's been difficult to get motivated. Over the past 20 years I've developed a great routine.... 6 months of dirt.... 6 months of snow. I really prefer to get off the bikes this time of the year for body and mind health. This year we have no choice as the riding has been all time good in the Sea to Sky. One of the great benefits of working at Norco Bicycles is the opportunity to try new models and new categories of bikes. I'd been messing around with our new fat bikes in the snow since November but now it was time to take them to the steep loamy trails in our back-yard. The weapon I've been enjoying is the 2014 Sasquatch. The ultimate test would be the steep granite and dirt of Britannia Creek.
