“Our goal is to encourage winter cycling among our members.” Says Steve Fischer, FOTW president. “This event is a great way to keep people engaged during what used to be our off-season. Plus we get to ride the Catamount Trails which will be open to fat bike enthusiasts all winter!”
Included in the Global Fatbike Day festivities is the first annual Fat Cat Alleycat Race presented by The Old Spokes Home. The Fat Cat is a scavenger hunt style competition for competitive racers and novices alike. Participants will be given a map with five checkpoints illustrated. Riders much determine the most efficient route and retrieve tokens form all checkpoints before crossing the finish line. Riders finishing within an allotted time period will be legible to win prizes. Serious competitors with the best times will receive series points toward the Grand Fat Tour race series. Have fun, explore the catamount trails and find those checkpoints!
Le Grand Fat Tour promotes sustainable trail networks and is a catalyst for activating winter riding programs. It’s also a great opportunity to educate and entertain the pedaling public. Global Fat Bike Day is proud to be the first event on the Grand Fat Tour schedule!
Come rain or shine, snow or no snow, Global Fat Bike Day will include:
– Fat bike demos and a marked demo loop
– Group rides for all abilities
– Local food and drink
– A semi-competitive race for all levels of riders
