Here are few shots of the F.O.R.C. (Friends of Off Road Cycling) groups annual Frozen Fat Fondo Fest, held Jan 25th 2020. The wooded gathering scenes were at a spot called the "crotch" due to a crotch like shaped pair of trees you had to ride through. Well....you had the option to ride around it but with that came the pelting of snowballs by the crowd. Did I mention they were baking copious amounts of bacon here also??? The event was held at the Credit Island Lodge in Davenport, IA.

The Whole Enchilada is a series of connected mountain bike trails that take you from the snow to the desert floor over the course of a few hours of pounding downhill. Here are some clips of me riding it this summer in Moab, Utah.

The fog was rolling it, the trails were too muddy to bike, so I thought I'd go for a hike. This is what I came back with.
