Boxing Day Fatbike Riding in Calverton

Boxing Day Fatbike Riding in Calverton

Because we’re new to trail riding on our bicycles, Kenny and I have kind of decided to give each local trail a whirl. This past Friday, we brought our fatbikes to Calverton for the first time.

The main trail loop is about 8 miles and is mostly flat. There are a few single diamond loops off of the main trail that had a little climb and some logs to traverse that tack on another mile or so.

Overall the ride is generally flat and wiggly. A more aggressive mountain biker might think it was on the dull side but for me? It was a lot of fun. I’m just happy to be out enjoying the beautiful winter light on my bicycle.

The terrain was dry which was surprising considering how much rain we’d had over the last week. You couldn’t have asked for nicer weather in December here in New York. It was in low 50’s!

Apparently I must’ve knocked into the GoPro on my handlebars when we rode the Rollercoaster Loop. Lucky you, you get to seem my boobs. And my nostrils. Sexytime!

The Tiger, the Bull and the Duck on a Winter Day

I don’t know if I am just a creature of habit, a 1 trick pony or what? But, there are a few landmarks here on Long Island that I cannot ride by without stopping to take a photo.

While out for a ride to enjoy the unseasonably warm December weather, I stopped in some of my favorite spots on my way east. Again.

Exhibit A: The big black bull in Manorville.

I don’t mean to stop and peer over the fence to look at the giant metal bull, it just happens. There are usually a couple furry-legged horses there in the corral that look at me like I’m an idiot when I do.

“Oh, brother. There’s the lady again. I wonder if she knows that Angus isn’t real?”

Exhibit B: The Big Duck of Flanders

The duck has some kind of magnetic field that pulls me right in. It very well could be a tractor beam emitted from its red eyes.

It never changes. It’s the same duck it’s been since the first time I saw it and yet… can’t pass it by.

Quack, Quack!
