Rented some fatbikes today. Rode nipika trails and around Radium and through the golf course. A nice nighttime finish to a solid fatbiking day.

It's worth it. There's a bit more snow in nipika than radium but not to much to push through. Also they have lots of snowshoe tracks on the single track trail. Have fun.

Just found this group and wanted to post. This is from last spring. A shot from 2/3 the way up my switch back path commute. Slushy trails with an awesome view of downtown cowtown.
I'll post some more next week for fun.

+John Henrick all I have to do is look out the window... Mind you, I get to play with studded tires which is kind of fun.

The hill definitely won yesterday!  10+ degrees all afternoon and my off-path road home was soft and slushy with big pools of water.
On a more positive note, I think I may have actually found a day/conditions in Calgary that would have been better on a fat bike.

I'm starting to get serious about a fatbike. I use a 29er single speed currently with spiked tires. It grips great on the sometimes glazed packed snow and ice but fails when the trails are choppy and rutted. The only thing I'm worried about with the day bike is these conditions. Icy seems like the Achilles heel of the fat bike but I have no direct experience. Anybody running spikes on their fat bike? Any problem with running a fat bike in all Calgary winter conditions?

My commute involves some unmaintained pathways as well as paved pathways. I'm also very keen on hitting some mountain bike trails in winter. Anybody have suggestions on the bike and the ties to best suit this desire?

Great video showing the CD manufacturing plant and workflow.  All for Michael Jackson's History album.

Interesting
Education circles are abuzz with a new concept: that resilience and persistence are just as important as intelligence to predicting student success and achievement. But can "grit" actually be taught?

"45,000 in america who die [each year] waiting because they don't have insurance at all".
I very interesting 2 minute Q&A.  Maybe because I'm Canadian, but I can't imagine why we wouldn't allow everyone access to quality health care.  I really don't subscribe to the rich-should-be-in-better-health mentality.
 
When U.S. Senator Richard Burr questioned Canadian doctor Danielle Martin at a public hearing this week, she had a few choice words for him. Hear what happened.
American Senators are a curious bunch -- in a highly partisan sort of way. So when Canadian doctor Danielle Martin testified before a U. S. Senate hearing on single-payer public heath care yesterday, Republican Senator Richard Burr did not ask things like,
