It was fun to stop by and be a part of the Frosty's Fat Bike Race Series at Nordic Valley Ski Resort today. It was a great event where they had 43 participants that raced a 2 mile loop course for up to 12, 9, and 6 miles for Expert, Sport, and Beginner respectively.
A fat bike is a tire width of 3.75" wide plus. Most commonly fat bikes are fully rigid with no suspension but now you will find fat bikes with front suspension or front and rear suspension as found on most mountain bikes. Fat bikes are rapidly increasing in popularity. In addition to packed snow and Nordic trails, you can find them on hunting trails, city trails, and in the summer months on dirt single track trails. They are quite versatile and really fun to ride!
The race was sponsored by Nordic Valley in Eden, UT, Mad Dog Cycles of Provo, UT, and The Bike Shoppe of Ogden, UT. Thanks for allowing Good Bike Co. to be a part of your event.
