Winterbike Festival 2024


Presented by Lawson’s Finest Liquids, WinterBike is Vermont’s premier Fatbike Festival. Now in its 12th year, the event continues to be the favorite among fatbike enthusiasts. The event is headquartered tentatively at Mike’s Tiki Bar and hosted on the Kingdom Trails network, boasting over 31 miles of cold-rolled singletrack!

In keeping with tradition, Winterbike will include the usual crowd pleasing ingredients including a ride, remote aid station, after party catering by Ranch Camp, and so much more!

Only 300 tickets are available! Also, KT and MTBVT are offering a discount to Northeast Kingdom (NEK) residents! To qualify, you must be a full-time resident of the NEK. NEK full-time residents will receive a $10 discount! Use discount code NEKRESIDENT at checkout.

We’ll be mapping and signing a loop suitable for all abilities and will be sending riders out in two waves (advanced-expert followed by beginner-intermediate) following the course. Ride at your own pace, with your friends, stay at the aid station as long as you please, and return with everyone to the KT HQ party!

Capped at 300! This time we’ve raised the cap to reflect the growth of this event. Tickets will sell out so don’t wait to register! We’ve capped the event to 300 participants total.

Registration for the event gives you access to the Kingdom Trails network and all Winterbike activities on Saturday including the ride route, lunch and beverages, music, fire, the Lawson’s Finest Footdown World Championships, and swag!
