Global Fat Bike Day +1

In it's 6th year, Global Fat Bike Day is just like it sounds, a day to celebrate and ride fat bikes. Technically, Saturday (12/2) is the day, but hey, many of us work on Saturdays, so we are declaring the whole weekend a Fat Bike Holiday. Here is the plan:

* Meet up at the Schweitzer Roundabout (across from the fire station).

* Group Fat Bike Rides will leave parking lot at high noon (12pm). We will ensure that the trails from the roundabout are groomed and ready for the day (weather depending of course). Take a intermediate level ride down to Smelly Lake and back. Or, take one of the more advanced singletrack options in through the woods on Loop Ski, Lower Flow or Lower Basin Trails. 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 for pickup Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning).

* Do one or more rides, it's up to you. The Greasy Fingers crew will have warm drinks and something on the bbq to warm your insides and a fire to warm your outsides.

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