It was a local spin around the walled town of Conwy which is just a couple of miles from home. The castle and town walls in the video date back to the 1280’s after being built by the English king to show his power within Wales. Google it, there’s some very interesting history there…..
Update on the Frost Bottom Race rescheduled to January 16th due to weather. Check out that ice!

Congratulations Jeff! Great video, fires up my fat stoke. Fat-Biking in Scotland is on my bucket list. Excellent footage of an amazing place.
Wow, a huge thanks to Tupper for picking my tour of Conwy in North Wales as the winning video!
Looking forward to the Mukluk wearing the bag and I’ll have to get in contact about a frame bag too!!
And yes, the Welsh flag does have a dragon on it. And they (apparently) can be seen around the hills……
