Throwback Thursday: Fat Biking in the Polar Vortex

Dave_Gray_mile_77[1]-750 We posted this five years ago, in December 2014. We’re talking about some serious cold winter riding here:

When the “Polar Vortex” came down from the Arctic Circle last winter, it brought the coldest temperatures seen in years to the Midwest. It so happened that there was a bike race at the same time. Dave Gray of Surly Bikes, seen here, covered in ice, stopped for a break at mile 77 of the 135-mile course. It was said to be 35-below-zero Fahrenheit here (37-below, Celsius). Photo: Mike Riemer/Salsa Cycles
