Fat bikes are awesome! Riding a fat bike gets you outside during the winter months, improves your cycling endurance, and well, puts a huge smile on your face! There’s no question that riding a fat bike ups your giggle factor! And that is why all of us a Peak Cycles Bicycle Shop are delighted to be part of the Staunton Fattie Frenzy! It’s this Sunday, February 24th at Staunton State Park.
The Staunton Fattie Frenzy is a celebration of front range fat biking featuring a fast-paced and spectator-friendly circuit race. Racers can go solo or in teams of 2 or 4 on the 1.5-mile loop so gather your friends, plan your costumes (optional), and get ready for some fat fun. The race is 90 minutes plus one lap. While fun is the name of the game, we are also offering prizes. Our primary motivation for the Staunton Fattie Frenzy is twofold:
1. We love fat biking and we want others to love it too! Because we know great trail conditions can make a good day into an awesome day, Big Ring Cycles and Peak Cycles have partnered with 285 Nordic and Staunton State Park to raise money for grooming equipment at Staunton. Join us in building a great location for fat bike riders for years to come, right here in the front range.
2. We believe in supporting and encouraging young cyclists in this great sport so we will also be raising funds for the High School Cycling League. In 2018, the High School League had 1383 riders building strong minds, bodies, and character one pedal stroke at a time. Join us in supporting the future of cycling!
Make plans for some fun! Register today to join in the fun this Sunday. Your registration fee includes:
