SnowFondo 2018 Wintershines Festival Event

The 5th Annual Wintershines SnowFondo  is a free recreational fat bike ride of ~12.5, 25, or 37.5km with fun trails accessible for all riding abilities. This year’s ride will take place exclusively out at the new Man of the Trees Winter Fat Bike Trail Network at the SW edge of the City Limits near Cedar Villa.

We are excited to feature these new trails groomed using our grooming equipment recently purchased through a Wintershines grant and the “Well Groomed Fatbike Funraiser” event we organized this past fall.

A Purple course will contain more twisty single-track requiring a bit more balance, and the Orange course will allow riders to bypass portions of the tighter single-track. This way you are able to mix and match your ride as you like.

This is not a race, rather the focus is on exposing more folks to winter recreational riding in a fun social event. We will have several leaders for various speeds and abilities and you can link up with the group that meets your fitness and experience.

Full event participation guide will be available shortly and posted here on our website. An enormous effort has gone into creating and designating these trails for Winter Fatbiking – come check them out.

If you enjoy the trails and the efforts to hold this event, we invited you to  nurture our nature with a donation to help keep them groomed and maintained for future rides. https://www.trailforks.com/region/saskatoon/karma/

Frosty the Fatbike

Frosty’s Fat Bike Race Series is geared toward fat bikes racing on snow.
Started in 2014, they are excited to be back for 2018.

Frosty’s Fat Bike Race Series was born out of the need for a competitive outlet for cyclist wishing to test their skill, fitness and mental fortitude against the elements of Winter.

Specially selected venues allow riders to compete and enjoy the grin inducing euphoria that only Snow Biking can produce. Frosty, the mysterious and formidable Utah Yeti, is the mascot and host of these events.

This is your opportunity to play in the cold of Winter and prove your Yeti snow handling skills and suitable for all skill levels including beginners and first timer’s!
