Fatty for a fatgirl

I am large, short and fat. Pushing 60 and right at 200. It could be worse. I like bikes. I found a fatty. So very nice. Oooh. Haven't ridden in years. The last time I tried a short go and found the my bars weren't tight. Oh well.

None of us are fat, we're just generously proportioned.

Enjoy your find.

Since I have spent most of my time on MTB's ,and they were called fat tire bikes back in the day, I use the hashtag #fatboyfattires. I kept it even though I moved to a hybrid.

You go girl! #fatgirlfattires
