A date has been set, now share your plans. Are you arranging a group ride or heading out solo? Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, make sure that you ride your fat bike! Take pictures and share them with us!

We also need to spread the word to our fat riding friends around the world. You know how it works by now, you know the date and time, all it needs now are people. As many people as possible. Go out and spread the word !

I'm guessing Minneapolis will have a good ride again this year. Maybe I can actually make it this time and join in the fat day drinking festivities.

Yeah, we flooded the Minnesota River Bottoms last year. So many fatties it was unreal.

About a year, ago a couple of very clever Brits came up with an idea for a grass roots - worldwide - fat-bike holiday, that would bring the fat-bike community together, like nothing we've ever seen before or since! That, of course, is until, December 7th, which will be this year's - GLOBAL FAT-BIKE DAY! Some of you are probably wondering… why are we telling you about an event so far in advance? Well it's because you are all part of the planning process! It takes time to get all of your ducks in a row, and gather your regional fat-tribe for some world-wide group-fun. So consider this your early reminder, to mark your calendars and get that process started. This event is purely a grass-roots, community based dealio. no sponsors, no entry fees, and no worries…..just, one of the best times, you've ever had on a fat-bike! There are threads about GFBD at both the UK Fat-Bike Forum and the MTBR Fat-Bike Forum. Everyone is invited to get together and join in the fun!

In case you haven't heard, Fat-Bikes are currently, what you might call, Mui Caliente! I like to believe that we're in the midst of a fat-bike renaissance and we should all gather together to revel in this time of abundance! On December 7th, 2013, people from all over the globe, will get out for a ride on their fat-bikes! They'll go for a solo cruise or maybe make plans to gather their fat-bike amigos, for a group ride! Don't forget your camera, because part of the Global Fat-Bike Day celebration will include sharing your experience, through photos and video! The world fat-bike community is ready to learn more about this year's GFBD so regional ride organizers, please share your plans for the event! Drop us a note at [email protected]. Or post rides where ever you like. We'll post links to regional GFBD rides in our Weekly Dose of Fat reports on Fridays leading up to the date of the event.

With all of the new hardware that's coming down the pike, think about how exciting its going to be, when we all come together in groups and get the opportunity to take some of these new bikes for a quick spin. Or imagine how cool it's going to be for new members of the fat-bike community to show off their new school rides to the long beards and early adopters in the group. The idea behind GFBD is for the entire fat-bike community to go for a ride together and then….maybe derby it up!

Global Fat-Bike Day is going to be INSANE!

The Quad Cities (Davenport, IA) will be hosting one for Eastern Iowa/Western Illinois contingency. We have a tentative plan in place that should be worth the trip and then some! Details forthcoming, I will get information to Gomez as soon as I get some details figured out.

Hoping for 50+ fat bikes!

I'm thinking about riding at the White Sands National Monument (again) for GFBD. In case anyone wants to meet me there.
