Travel Haiku - Fruita Fat Tire Festival (Colorado)


Fruita Fat Tire Festival
uncle joins in to trim
his fats

Fruita Fat Tire Festival
his flabs jump up and down
Kokopelli's trail

Fruita Fat Tire Festival
aunty joins in to
keep her shape

Fruita Fat Tire Festival
up and down Kokopelli's trail
she will make a go

Thank Fruita, Colorado's warm, arid climate for the fact that come April, trails are already mud-free and the weather's balmy. The Fruita Fat Tire Festival, held April 23-26, is the unofficial kick-off to bike season and involves races, group rides, and, naturally, plenty of ale and live bands. Fruita is known for its slim, fast singletrack. Stop by Over the Edge Sports, the de facto biking hub, to rent wheels and gather beta, and then explore the Kokopelli's Trail area, which features 40-plus miles of classic Fruita singletrack.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
