To top it all off these rides are free and all are welcome to join. Over the years riders have donated thousands of pounds of non-perishable food and countless warm clothes to local charities. Help us help others by participating in this great event.

 

Big thanks to Light & Motion for sponsoring this series- lights available upon request.

Don’t have a fat bike? We have limited demos available on a first come, first serve basis. Reservations are required as these rides fill up fast and regularly have waiting lists. We reserve the right to prioritize first-time participants for demo bikes over those who have ridden previously.
