That looks like a lot of fun! I see a lot of fat tire bikes around my area. Durango (as is nearby Moab, Utah) has become a hub for mountain biking.

I've seen pic's & video's of some pretty nice backcountry snowmobiling in Sweden too, similar to the mountain terrain we ride here in Colorado.

And exactly a week later to the day -



A 70F swing in one week.

Raining now, but that will change tonight.

Oldest son had a chance to take a spin on a coworker's KX450 ice bike over the weekend -

Snowdonia's another place I'd like to see a bit more of, especially on one of the rare days when the weather's that good. But I'd be torn between taking a motorbike or a mountain bike.

A motorbike will give you the opportunity to see all the area in a couple of days or so then you can go back later with your mountain bike to specific places. I've been a voluntary National Park Warden for 55 years so know it pretty well. Came up here in 1962 with RAF Mountain Rescue.

Gromit2. Just a couple of hours after posting above I received an invitation to join some of my mountain biking friends for a birthday weekend of riding and partying based in Trawsfynydd next weekend. So mountain bike it is. This time.
