Our Fatterday rides will start on November 12, 2022, and run until early to mid-April, weather and trail conditions permitting. The cost will be $30.00 for the season and will include insurance and a t-shirt. As mentioned, we will start the rides at 2:00 pm to minimize wait times and maximize riding time. Please be at the meeting place early and ready to ride at 2:00. We will have two groups again for this season, Group A - moderate pace, most abilities, and Group B - fast pace, advanced to expert riders, these groups will be self-seeding but our overall goal is for everyone to have fun and no one gets left behind.
We are planning to do a special event for Global Fat Bike Day on Saturday, December 3rd, the details will be communicated once the plans have been finalized.
For your convenience, sign-up and payment can be done at any one of our Edmonton area stores, however, the t-shirt pick-up will be handled through the west end location.
