Full Moon Fat Bike Race and Ride

Full Moon Fat Bike Race and Ride – Wednesday, January 8, 2020. 6pm start. $30 includes burgers, beers, veggie burgers and non-alcoholic beverages. Last year’s Full Moon Race/Rides were a huge success. Everyone from full-on racers to friends who just wanted to ride together and enjoy the moonlight scenery came out to play.

It is super cool to see the fat bikers spread out over the Lake Catamount Touring Center’s tracks in the moonlight with their flashing bike lights reflecting off the snow. Short or long courses available. After the ride everyone meets up at the Lake Catamount Club House Restaurant for a satisfying burger (or vegetarian option), cold beer (or non alcohol beverage) and let the story telling begin! Let’s hear your Full-Moon-HOWL! Click Here to Register.
