This is an excellent opportunity to experience the trails in an exhilarating way and enjoy hot beverages after the ride! Each ride will begin with an overview of fat biking basics and trail etiquette. Instructors will lead the group on a ride of about two hours while providing tips and tricks along the way to maximize your riding experience, and help you gain confidence on intermediate trails.

What to bring with you


Please meet at Loppet Trailhead building. Your REI instructors will outfit you with a helmet and fat bike before hitting the trails. Also, plan to arrive early as parking can be a challenge. Overflow parking is available at the Theodore Wirth Chalet, just down the road.
