Fat biking at night is illegal

(updated: Feb 12, 2013)

Riding a bike at night is fun. Riding a fat bike at night is even more fun. Riding in more than one location at night should be illegal, and it is, if you ride on Wrightsville Beach. Come to think of it, night riding at Blue Clay is not allowed either. Good thing I wasn't at either of those places (wink, wink, nudge, nudge).

If I get caught, all this talk about crabon is going to come back and bite me. The prisons are too overcrowded, and since everything is being crabonized, someone will figure why not try this with people. Here is what they will do to you soon after you run a red light on your bike:

This one turned out really cool. Looks like I have wings or am a bug. Actually, I'm a fairy. And fairies come out at night to play. And grant wishes and crap.

Gotta do a little jumping. Although this rig weighs ~40lbs, so I don't know who's jumping who.

If you get caught at night at Brunswick Nature Park they just lock you in.

I think it may be wise at this point to go to a strict no logo policy.

Wrightsville Beach at night. Illegal during the day, more illegal at night because it's dark, and also freaks come out at night.

It's getting late, and the Pugsley is hungry for some crabon. If you're on a crabon bike at this hour, beware. I ride in the wrong direction too.

We settled for Tower 7.
