Fattyooshko Fat Bike Race | Freewheel! (a bike blog)

You don't need to know what Fattyooshko means, you just need a fat bike, a yen for some midwinter fun and time free this Saturday morning. Turns out, Fattyooshko is a bike race set up by the folks down at Ben's Cycle & Fitness on Lincoln Ave and is held down the road from their shop at Kosciusko (“Koz-shoo-sko”) Park down the way from the St. Josephat Basilica on the South Side. Though the snow seems to be in full-on fade-mode, they plan to hold the race on Saturday at 10:30AM and it sounds like fun mix of fat bikes, friends and of course, beer. 

Here are the details from the fb invite...
