It’s that time of year when we trade out our mountain bikes for Fat Bikes and put the gravel bike on the trainer. Every year for Global Fat Bike Day, bikers all over the world gather for group rides to celebrate. If you’re looking to join a ride, here are some great ones happening all over Michigan.
Muskegon Luge-Every year Muskegon Luge gets permission from the DNR to open up their trails to biking! This only happens once a year! This year they’ll have the trails open from 2-10pm with the trail lights coming on at dusk for a fun riding experience! State park sticker required and there is a suggested $10 donation that goes towards trail management.
Midland City Forest-CMMBA, along with Adventure Team Midland and Ray’s Bike Shop is hosting an awesome ride if you live out that way. Ray’s Bike Shop will have rentals available if you don’t have your own fat bike and want to see what it is all about. There will also be food provided for lunch.
Sleepy Hollow State Park, Laingsburg-Be a part of “the LARGEST Global Fat Bike Day celebration in the world” this Saturday! Hosted by MMMBA, event starts at 10am and with rides rolling out at 10:30. Replete with a chili cook-off, 12 miles of beginner friendly trails, and tons of other food, it’s going to be a great day of community and biking. No fat bike needed to participate as long as conditions allow. Make sure to pre-register if you are going to make day of easier for the volunteers that will be there.
We think riding and celebrating are more fun with a group, but whether you join a group ride or not, get out on that fat bike and celebrate Global Fat Bike Day however you please!
