Winterbike Fatbike Festival 2018- March 3rd

REGISTRATION IS OPEN!

Mountain Bike Vermont and Kingdom Trails have partnered once again for the 7th annual WinterBike Fatbike Festival presented by Von Trapp Brewing on March 3, 2018. The year brings the largest Winterbike yet: more pedaling people, more groomed trails, more festivities, more fun!

Registration for the event gives you access to the Kingdom Trails network and all Winterbike activities on Saturday including group rides, fatbike demos, lunch and beverages, music, fire, sugar on snow, games, race spectation, and swag!

FRIDAY PRE-REG PARTY: We will host a pre-registration checkin & social on Friday March 2nd at the Tamarack Pub & Grill. Plan to show up between 6:00 and 8:00pm for early registration and pre-gaming! Yup, skip the Saturday morning lineup and head straight into the event!

DEMO FATBIKES will be available from the vendors in the Expo area for 45 minute rides throughout the day on a first come first served basis. Demo loops will be signed and be an optimal length for a perfect 45 minute “ride it like you stole it” demo experience.

Shops attending will offer Demos and/or rentals. You’ll be able to contact your favorite shop in advance of the event to procure a steed to use all day. Details and prices will vary per vendor.

THE REMOTE AID STATION: In keeping with tradition, MTBVT will be hosting the aid station with the usual local delights and personalities.

SATURDAY NIGHT After party action from 4-late at the Burke Publick House.

TENTATIVE SCHEDULE – as the day approaches we’ll be adding details of the event. Timing is subject to change based on the forecasted temperatures for the day. As we all know, fatbiking is snow condition and weather dependent so planning out the day will be an organic experience…
