So the big day arrived and Jocelyn from PDW came to pick me up in the worst rain ever. With a car full of stash, 2 bikes and 3 girls we headed down to the Oregon Dunes and the weather got worst all the time.
Once at the campground we joined a bunch of rad ladies and dudes and we started making ourselves comfortable in our yurts (wikipedia: A yurt is a portable, bent dwelling structure traditionally used by nomads in the steppes of Central Asia as their home)
As we started drinking beer and the last people who were supposed to arrive arrived the weather got better and when Donnie Kolb from Velodirt suggested a night ride we just jumped on our fleet #fatbacksbikeak and a couple of #on-ones. With PDW Lars Rover on almost all bikes we could see quite well and the night ride was an experience that will stay with me for a long time!
The weather changed and we stayed on the Dunes for 3 more days, heading home monday to leave back the Fatbacks bike in Bends.
The ladies were amazing and i would like to thanks Jocelyn and Hazel from PDW for organizing this awesome trip. I finally met all these rad people i have been talking to since the Oregon Outback and made new friends.
Adam Newman from Dirt Rag was there and made a gallery online for Bicycle Times that you can see here.
My pictures are not as good but you can see them on facebook.com/bavabici
If you plan a trip there or you would just like to talk about fat bikes i will be happy to tell you more!
Six days left in Portland OR.
