Indian Creek Fat Bike Demos Recap

Greasy Fingers Bikes N Repair hosted a free fat bike demo day at Indian Creek Campground this past Saturday.  It was part of Idaho's Parks Free Ski and Park Day.  XC Skiers, snowshoers and fat bikers descended on the park to use the trails and learn a little something.

The weather was awesome with lots of sunshine.  I have to admit the fat bikes were the most popular activity.  Everyone wanted to try them.  The XC trails had only been groomed twice this season and hence, were still kinda soft.  We kept the bikes off them as not to damage the track for the skiers.  No worries and as we have had several snow covered loops down by the lake and through the empty campground.

Here are some pics of the day...




 



lots of empty chairs, as everyone wanted to ride



Once our "work" at the demo was done, we all went for a ride up Indian Creek Trail.  I steady climb where we quickly warmed up.  Once we felt we had enough exercise we pointed the bikes back downhill and commenced a wicked fun descent!

Fun day of bikes, but then again what day with bikes isn't fun?
