Rollin’ fat ones in Homer

Fat bikes on Kachemak Bay.
Fat is where it’s at in Homer, especially during the Big Fat Bike Festival. And we can now call it the “annual” BFBF, because the Homer Cycling Club has pulled off two events in a row. Both were a hoot.

BFBF 2013: Pure fat-bike fun.
Beaches, bonfires and fat-bikers is a pretty tough combination to beat. Especially when you throw an impromptu helicopter beer drop into the middle of the ride. (Even though my group missed it because we had already left the fire to roll back toward Homer.)

I also got a taste of what it feels like to win a free bike frame. Unfortunately, I got the taste because I had custody of raffle tickets for the absentee winner during Saturday night’s burger ‘n’ beer dinner. Oh, well. At least it felt like mine for a second.

Thanks to all the Homer riders who worked hard to put together another fun event, and for listening to everyone’s input from last year to make BFBF 2013 as successful as possible. The post-ride bike-wash station at Cycle Logical was a huge help for those of us who had to haul piles of fatties back to Anchorage.

See you on the Spit again next year.
