The While Out Riding blog has a story with some Fantastic photos of a trip in Bolivia via Surly Pug, Troll and Ogre on the classic Lagunas Route

Richie Cunningham wrote a story on Pink Bike about the inevitability of Professional fat-bike racing. There’s an interesting poll at the bottom of this slightly skewed piece. Check it out and vote in the poll.

Right now, one of our favorite brands is having their Summer sale. Ibex makes awesome Merino Wool clothing. The sale goes till the end of August at their two flagship retail stores in Boston and Seattle or at www.ibex.com

Have you ever experienced the dog days of Summer? Well we have a kick ass contest going thru the month of August and this week’s secret word is…ahhh you thought I’d give it away in the show notes, didn’t you? Sorry, you’ll have to listen to the show.

One of our favorite fat-bike photographers Tom McDonald shared a blog with us and it gives us a glimpse at the fat-bike paradise the vikings called Newfoundland.

If you write about fat-biking on the web and would like us to check out what you’ve got going, shoot me an email to greg@fat-bike.com and we might just mention your stories on the show!

And we’ll end this weekly dose with a ‘Parting Shot’ from Colin Atkins – Colin sent us a gorgeous panoramic shot of his Borealis Echo at Rivington Pike North England – check out the show notes to take a gander at some lovely english countryside! Click on that puppy to enlargify!
