Fun Group Ride with a social event at Amigos post ride.
2018 Global Fat Bike Day (GFBD) set the bar at 95 participants – this year we are going over the 100 barrier!!! Plan to ride your Fatbike (or rent one from Bike Doctor, Bruce’s Cycle Works, or Doug Spoke ‘N Sport), or loan one from a buddy, in celebration of Global Fat Bike Day which is always the first Saturday of December. Saskatoon riders will join others around the world in this celebration ride.
Ride plan will be to gather in Rotary Park down from the South base of the Victoria bridge to sign on at 1:00pm – please arrive in time to sign in and get your bike plate and be ready to ride for 1:30pm Send-off.
There will be something for everyone and every ability – from a wide double track roll along the Great Trail – Trans Canada Trail – to some narrow single track offshoots for those that want a more challenging route (weather allowing).
Note: washrooms in Rotary Park are seasonal and closed. Closed washrooms are across Victoria bridge at River landing (~2blocks away). Washrooms on course at Gabe Dumount Pavillion
Free event. If you have a blast and want to show your appreciation then a donation to the St Barbe (aka Man of the Trees) Winter Trail Network through Trailforks
