The Velocio ZERO bib is sure to be a long-lasting piece of your kit. Wind-proof and water resistant, it works well as a stand-alone layer for winter road riding or as a base layer for fat biking in freezing temps. If you are a rider that eats snow and ice for breakfast then these are for you.
I appreciate the attention to detail in the design. For instance the ankle cuff protection is taller on the right leg than the left for extra durability on the chain side. And big kudos to Bontrager for making these in a women’s version that is not a watered-down version of the men’s!
This women’s wool cycling jersey was stellar on it’s first hot ‘n sweaty ride: a new section of the Great Divide Trail in Wyoming that climbs up to Sublette Pass.
Want to challenge yourself in the snow and have fun at the same time? Here is a list of fat bike races in the West. Race. Train. Smile. Repeat.
Drumroll please, here is a list of women-specific winter cycling pants ideal for fat biking. Whenever I read a gear review I have to look up each item to see if it comes in a women’s version or if the men’s size might be workable. My goal was to find a range of winter cycling pants for the woman fat biker that would be ideal for the weekend warrior to the hero endurance athlete. The list comes from recommendations from both.

How to organize a fat bike poker run. The most fun you’ve had with your clothes on….. preferably layers.
I’m no expert and I race simply for the camaraderie and fun of it so take my advice with a grain of salt. Also, I don’t dive into fueling or race strategy here. My strategy is to keep turning the cranks and not fall too much. For perspective, the races that I’ve done so far have ranged from 14 miles to 25 miles in the snow and 30 to 70 on dirt single track. Most of these tips pertain to snow/cold weather racing.
While everyone was tucked in their beds dreaming of sugar plums dancing in their heads, Studd Pyles and I packed our bikes and rode to Frye Lake to camp under the stars and watch the sky for Santa and his reindeer. This post is about a very special Christmas Eve spent bikepacking in the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming from Sinks Canyon State Park to Frye Lake.
