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.

In the Books: November FMBR at the Ocean Mist

We gathered under the Supermoon Monday Nov. 14th at the Ocean Mist for the latest in our series of Full Moon Beach Rides…Matunuck. 60 Riders joined us to explore parts of Roy Carpenters Beach, East Matunuck Beach and Jerusalem as well as nearby trails and marshes.

The seven mile ride took just over an hour to complete, and upon return to the Mist and a good post-ride bike wash riders were treated to tacos and IPAs inside at the bar.

Thank you to everybody who supported the ride, either by helping organize and simply being there and riding with us. The FMBR will be back in December with a new location and adventure…stay tuned for details and hope you can make it.
