A special holiday greeting must go to all the cows out there in Wyoming who have given us mountain bikers a whole new world to ride bike in. If it wasn't for these beautiful animals, we would have to build all the single track trails ourselves. If anyone has told you that the trails around Casper are no fun, then they are not much for exploring.
I want all of you who are new to Casper to know that there is a TON of trails. All you need to do is get out and ride. Check out the BLM, the State Parks, the National Forests. There are some of the most amazing vistas and climbs you've ever seen pretty darn close to home.
My suggestion.... Come ride with the Fat Fish. Even though we sometimes call our rides a race, it is for ANYONE. On Saturday we rode for 18 miles on new and old trails at Edness K Wilkins State Park. It is pretty similar to crossroads but while it was windy in town, the tree cover at EKW made for a very calm day.
In conclusion: Thank you cows, there is a lot more riding available to us than you think, EKW offers a quiet refuge when the wind is blowing in town, and three of us found some amazing trail today that we will share at a Fat Fish Racing event in 2011. It will blow your mind that we have this awesome trail just minutes from town.
Well, Merry Christmas from all of us at Fat Fish Racing and please check back with us after the new year. There is a good chance that we will be hosting some more free events for you at the start of 2011.
