December 31st & January 1st I rode with some of Fort Collins’ awesome biking peeps to help send out 2014 and welcome in 2015. They have as much snow as we do up in Wyoming, so I opted for the fat bike, which was fun!

Apparently I was loopy from all those steep climbs!
Still a lot of climbing ahead of us!
The Fatboy probably wasn’t the best choice for climbing Towers, but I survived, and only walked two steep pitches. Made for some nice elevation gain to start the year, and the bike was awesome on the descent, so stable even at 31mph!
