This tour has a flexible course, anywhere between 3-18 miles (or even more if you’re up for it!). The tour is at the Jewel Golf Course, with 6 miles of groomed trail over the golf cart paths. There are also about 3 miles of trail in some neighboring city property. The course will be open from 10 am – 1 pm, ride as much or as little as you like!
Each registrant will be entered into a drawing for a KHS Fat Bike (pictured below) (MSRP $1,200). Drawing will take place at approximately noon. Need not be present to win.
How long is the tour?
Can we ride as a team?
Yes, you can ride as a team of four. Registration is $120 for the team. This way you save $$ on registration. All 4 riders ride at the same time, but can ride different distances if you like, or ride the same distance. Team of 4 registration increases after January 24th to $160 for a team of 4.
What's the minimum tire width?
Will I need to sign a waiver?
Yes, signing a waiver is part of our online registration. If you sign up on site the day of the event, you will need to sign an old-school paper waiver.
Will the course be groomed?
“The Jewel” Experience is packed and groomed, with several inches of base. There are a couple bare spots, some with ice; if you have studs, go ahead and install these studded tires before you ride! While you won’t need the studs for 95% of the course, there could be a couple icy spots where they could help you.
“The Sticks” is an optional Off-Road experience which has been packed with snowmobile, until most of the snow melted (it’s grass underneath). This section of the course is an optional detour; it is a fantastic terrain, but unfortunately doesn’t have the base the groomed carts paths at The Jewel have. Think open singletrack only 1/3 covered with a little snow.
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 Facebook page.
Why haven't I heard of this event before now?
This is our 4th annual bike tour, and we’re just as FIRED UP as you are!
Is this a timed race?
Is this for beginners, or experts?
I don't have a fat bike, but I'm interested in trying it out. Will there be demo bikes?
Will the Jewel clubhouse be open?
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.
Where should we stay overnight in Lake City?
What is there to do in Lake City before/after the ride?
