Date for UK Fatbike Gathering 2, 28th/29th April 2012

The 2nd UK Fatbike gathering has been set for weekend of 28th/29th April, 2012.

Quite short notice but hopefully all those who made last years 1st UK fatbike Gathering can all make it along with no doubt many others judging by the sales of fatbikes here in the UK....

Last years chilled and easy weekend was one of the best social cycling weekends i have ever had, with some fantastic friends, old and new...

This years organisers are Andy & Jane who promise a fantastic weekend at the Lake District in NW England with some classic rocky Lakes trails on the Saturday and then we head to the coast and beach on the Sunday. In between that will be lots of good laughs, eating food, tyre kicking and if you want,  a drink or two...

Camping has been arranged and there will be forth coming links on that and B&B accommodation soon on the thread  for FBUK2 over on the MTBR Fatbike Forum

So once all the details are up, just turn up on the Friday evening and it will all sort itself out...

Really looking forward to this one -:)... we can mention the Moonlander this year!

Jason's  film from last year, of a very special weekend...


  1. need to buy a moonlander asap!!!!

  2. Charlie Bikemonger just built some up, dunno if any spare!

  3. oooooohhhhhhh yes!

  4. Don't want to hear there are spare moonlanders, cash is burning a hole in my pocket

  5. I'm hoping you will post regarding your wear/tear issues. Riding so much in the sand and surf has got to put a beating on your equipment.

    What's the word? What is your lube of choice to fight salty water? Etc.

    Thanks! I enjoy your combination of history and riding.

  6. Any idea roughly where in the Lakes. I'm planning how to get time off, etc.....

  7. I think Andy is planning on Camping at Satterthwaite. Grisedale camping he mentioned.
    He is leaving it a bit late for details so people can get organised!

    reverend dick; have a read of the post i wrote on bike preperation which explains what we do to help protect our bikes and keep rolling;
