Winterbike 2018 Retrospective

If we were  asked to sum Winterbike up in one word, it would be “community”.


Winterbike plays out like a small town homecoming. Over these seven years we’ve come to know each other and enjoy the company and ritual that Winterbike affords. This year felt like the party spirit of 2012 was still alive and well. That’s what happens when 300 family and friends unite to pedal together in the Vermont woods on a glorious winter’s day.

KT and MTBVT are proud to have an event that’s part of your annual fatbike experience. Nothing makes us happier than watching riders gather around the fire and listening to them spin tales of Winterbikes past. We hope 2018 provided you with a memorable time and armed you with a few new tales for seasons to come.

Thank you all for making the event what it is. Thanks to the folks from abroad for making the pilgrimage to our corner of the world. Thanks to all the locals for being such gracious hosts. Thanks for the businesses and vendors for supporting the pedaling public.

Particular thanks to:

Our newest teammate, Kingdom Trails Executive Director Abby. Congrats on joining the team!
