18' Pucci's to Point Coaster Brake Rally

Happening again this year, one of my most favorite bikes events in Sandpoint. See you there.

Before the resort opens for the summer season and traffic up the hill increases, let's ride! This event is for cruiser and coaster brake bikes only.

If you wanna shuttle, meet at Red Barn with your bike at 12:30pm. Shuttle space is limited, so be there early. First come first seat. Or plan your own shuttle.

Otherwise, gather at Pucci's Pub at 1pm.

After meet and greet, and staring at each other's cruiser bikes, we will leave Pucci's and begin our meander down the hill to the Point. It's a freestyle after that...

2018 Fatty Flurry Festival

Year #4

Fatty Flurry Fest is a celebration of Fat Bikes in North Idaho. If you have never tried a fat bike before, and wanted to try before you buy, here is your chance...for free. And if you already have a fatty, come hang with some fellow fat bikers and ride some cool trails.

Free Fat Bike Demo from 10-12:30pm (Surly & Salsa Fat Bikes)

Group Rides: Starting at 1pm. More info coming....

Post ride will feature some socializing and some sled pulling with some refreshments around the fire.

Some Notes: You will need a State Park Pass which can purchases on site for $5 or you can get an annual pass for your vehicle at the DMV beforehand. If you don't have a bike with tires at least 3.8" wide, leave it at home. There are porta potties that are nice and clean, but no running water. We will have a fire to keep you warm.

All activities will be at the lake parking lot/event pavilion.

Camping (if you are brave enough) is available, as well as ice fishing, snowshoeing, xc skiing, ice skating, name it.

This is a "low pressure" social Fat Bike event.

Fat Bike Demo at Indian Creek CG

Greasy Fingers Bikes will be up at Indian Creek CG (Priest Lake) Sat, Jan 6th from 10-2pm doing fat bike demos. If you wanted to try one out before you make the big jump, this would be a good chance. Lots of other stuff doing on up there that day as well, so should be fun times.

The River Beacon was on hand last year, and wrote an article about the day...and got some fun pictures.
