Many thanks to all of the volunteers who come together to make events like the Global Fat Bike event on Dec 4, 2021 possible! AJ is one of the most approachable, knowledgeable, and passionate people in our area when it comes to bicycles! You’ll find him working on bikes at his bright green bike shop located in Oakland’s Town Parking Lot, https://www.thetinycornerbikeshop.com/ and at events, local parks, or on organized rides. AJ shares the same goal as Sarah from Deep Creek Adventure Bureau, and Pat who you can find on his Facebook group called Garrett County Outdoors. They all just want people to get on bikes and enjoy our beautiful area TOGETHER! In the video you see caring people making sure the equipment won’t let you down. Knowing your bike is serviced and is in good working order promotes safety and confidence!
I did not have the opportunity to film any trail maintenance but rest assured Luke Mongrain, Park Services Supervisor has the trails ready for Saturday’s event. The entire staff at Herrington Maner works very hard to provide a safe, beautiful place to enjoy. Thank You!
Bikes might not be your passion and that’s okay, but we do encourage you to find activities you will enjoy! Groups naturally form when people are passionate about the same things- hiking, walking at local parks, dancing, running, you get the idea. Schedule your physical activity like all of the other important items on the to-do-list, spoiler alert, you feel so much better after you do it!
YES, we are still giving prize points for comments and enjoy the engagement- this time we want you to reach out to someone who has encouraged you to try something new and thank them, you can tell us about it in the comments below

Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise about fat tire bikes!
This is really interesting. I didn’t realize how many different bikes there are and the difference in them.
So glad to have the Tiny Corner Bike Shop in town.
I know how much you love this place. Thankful to have this in the area!
This video has a lot of great information. As far as someone introducing me to a new activity: I was encouraged by a friend in college to take the intro to yoga course. I was hesitant, but ended up loving it. I still try to find time for it regularly.
There are SO MANY people I could thank for encouraging me to explore and try new things, but the BIG SHOUT OUT goes to my Uncle Thomas Miller, the round-the-world sailing, scuba diving, fish hunting, marine biologist, intrepid adventurer, and hero of my youth! His adventures introduced me to a world of exploration, adventure, education, and FUN that still inspire me today!
Likewise, I am ENCOURAGED by our fellow “GoGarret” group because all of you helped this newcomer feel at home while exploring the goodness surrounding us!
I am learning a lot from these videos. I just assumed that a fat bike and mountain bike were the same thing. I do follow and appreciate several of the Facebook groups that encourage activity, and their posts help keep me motivated.
Another idea to add to my growing list of activities to enjoy!
I love bike riding but have never taken my bike on any local trails. I will have to give it a try.
We are going to start seeing a lot more fat tire bikes in the coming season!!! FUN!!!
ahh … I can’t wait for the SNOW!!
Thanks for sharing.
Let’s get the word out about AJ & his Tiny Corner Bike Shop!
Lots of knowledge to share.
Let’s keep him here. Shop locally!!
Great effort from all involved to show us all what Garrett Country has to offer.
