Fatty Flurry Fest: The 4th annual event features free fat bike demos and more

By Reader Staff

If you haven’t ridden a fat bike yet, what are you waiting for?

Fat bikes are all the rage, and during Idaho winters, they should be as they have gained popularity and are seen more and more on the trails.

Greasy Fingers Bikes N’ Repair will be hosting the fourth annual Fatty Flurry Fest on Saturday, Jan. 27, at Round Lake State Park with free fat bike demos and group rides.

Now in its fourth year, Fatty Flurry Fest is a celebration of fat bikes in North Idaho. If you have never tried a fat bike and always wanted to, here is your chance for free. And if you already have a fat bike, come and ride some fun trails with fellow bikers.

Free fat bike demos featuring Salsa Beargreases will be from 10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. (sorry, no kids bikes or riders under 18). The group rides will start at 1:00 p.m. (rental bikes available, reservations required).

The staff has been working hard to clear and pack the trails around the park. There will be a variety of different trails and difficulty levels for the group rides.

Post ride, Greasy Fingers will have hot drinks and refreshments on site to keep you warm and happy. All events will be held at the lake parking lot/event pavilion.

Round Lake State Park is south of Sandpoint, Idaho. A state park pass is required and can be purchased on-site for $5. Fat bikes have tires with at least 3.8-inch wide tires. Please do not bring bicycles that do not have 3.8-inch wide tires to the group rides.
