How long is the tour?

The tour is at the Jewel Golf Course and is 6, 12, or 22 miles long.

There’s 6 miles of groomed track on the golf cart paths. The 12 mile option does 2 laps. The 22 mile option does 2 laps, plus 10 miles on local edge-of-town roads (a combination of paved and gravel).

Can we ride as a team?

Yes, you can ride as a team of four. Registration is $100 for the team. This way yo save $$ on registration. All 4 riders ride at the same time, but can ride different distances if you like, or ride the same distance.

What's the minimum tire width?

A minimum tire width of 3.8″ is needed for the fat bike course.

Will I need to sign a waiver?

Yes, on event day you will need to sign a waiver. Old school, like a pen and paper.

Will the course be groomed?

Yes, the 6 mile loop on the Jewel Golf Course cart paths will be packed and groomed. The 12 mile option does 2 laps of the cart paths. The 22 mile option does 2 laps of the cart paths (packed and groomed), then 10 miles on local roads (not packed and groomed, you know, cleared, just like most roads).

How can I keep up with updates as event day approaches?

We will occasionally update this web page, but we will be offering more frequent updates on our general Facebook page, or the 2017 Facebook event page.

Why haven't I heard of this event before now?

2017 is our first annual Fat Bike Tour, and we’re just as FIRED UP as you are!

Is this a timed race?

No, it’s not a race. It’s a tour. But that doesn’t stop you from trying to get KOM on Strava, eh?!

Is this for beginners, or experts?

It’s good for both! We’ve designed the mileage to be good for beginners or experts. Come on out and have fun!

I don't have a fat bike, but I'm interested in trying it out. Will there be demo bikes?

Yes! Penn Cycle is bringing Otso Voytek and Trek Farley demos. The idea is to ride around the parking lot, see if you like fat biking, and hopefully buy one so you can participate in next years event, right!?!  We’ve tried to find rentals for people to ride the course, but they are few and far between, very sorry!

Will the Jewel clubhouse be open?

The clubhouse is typically closed during the winter, so the bar and restaurant will be closed during the Fired Up event. However, the front room will be open, as well as indoor bathrooms/changing rooms will be available.

Do I need a helmet? C'mon, it's winter and my hat doesn't fit underneath my helmet. I don't want to wear one.

Yes, you need to wear a helmet. Safety first 😉
