Mountain Bike Vermont Announces Überwintern
“Fat-bike group ride in Vermont’s corner of Austria, Lederhosen optional”
Mountain Bike Vermont is at it again after spending the last few weeks playing in snow on skis and boards, it’s time to fuel our bike starved souls and play on two wheels!
MTBVT has partnered with the Trapp Family Lodge to offer a day of fat-tired bike revelry on several of their world class XC ski trails. On February 23rd, 2013 we will be gathering at the Deli Bakery on top of Trapp Hill early in the day to lead a charge against Old Man Winter. Join us for group rides, bakery treats, brauts, and brews.
“Our goal is to elevate the status of fatbiking in Vermont’s green mountains, and of course to have a ton of fun” says event co-organizer Jon Severinghaus of MTBVT. “Überwintern will be the Trapp Family Lodge’s first introduction to the fat-bike phenomenon. ” says MTBVT co-founder Ryan Thibault.
Since this winter has already been both snowy and glorious, as well as warm and wet, we’ve got you covered in case of more predictably unpredictable weather. If winter fizzles and it’s a “late February melt fat-tired monster trucking dirt road ride” or a “the megastorm deep-freeze of 2013, where we pedal briefly and keep warm in the Trapps Brewery with hearty Austrian ales” Überwintern is sure to be a blast. Pump up those tires and we’ll see you on the corduroy!
