Pug Ops first ride

I have just acquired a Surly Pugsley Special Ops (a fat bike for those otherwise unfamiliar), after being interested in them for a few years. Being back in Oz, they are about as — perhaps even less — common as snow on the beach. It was for riding on the latter where my interest primary sat.

It was shipped to a friend’s business premises (to meet courier requirements), which is about 10km away. The plan was to pick it up and ride it back — which would open up the possibility to get it out onto sand for the last couple kms.
