Global Fat Bike Day +1

It's happening again!

In it's 5th year, Global Fat Bike Day is just like it sounds, a day to celebrate and ride fat bikes. Technically, Saturday (12/3) is the day, but hey, many of us work on Saturdays so we are declared the whole weekend a Fat Bike Holiday. Here is the plan:

* Meet at the Schweitzer Roundabout (across from the fire station). We will have warm drinks and hot dogs to warm your insides and a fire to warm your outsides.

* FREE Surly and Salsa Fat Bike Demos 10-1pm. Ever been fat bike curious? Now is your chance to come try one out. We will have several sizes (sorry no kids), and a short course set up on the groomed service road leaving from the roundabout. First come, first served.

* Group Fat Bike Rides leaving at 1:30pm. Got a fat bike already? We will a few of the trails from the roundabout groomed. Take a intermediate level ride down to Smelly Lake. Or, take one of the more advanced singeltrack ride options in through the woods. There will be something for everyone. Maps will be provided. Need a fat bike for the group ride? Call Greasy Fingers ahead and reserve one of our rentals for $20 (available at 1:30pm after the demos).

Co-sponsored by Schweitzer Mountain Resort, a big thanks to them for that!
