HELMETS mandatory. (If you’re used to wearing a thick hat, don’t worry. Wear a thin hat or buff. The combination of thin hat, helmet, and exertion should keep you warm.)

Visibility: WEAR bright or reflective clothing and lights, as rides may occasionally use roads. Please bring water, snack, and a simple tool kit. (You provide the bike. If you don’t have one, we have a list of places in town that rent fatbikes on our Winter Rides page.)

If you’re new to winter cycling (or just want more info) check out our Winter Riding Tips page.


If you don’t own your own fatbike, but want to try it out, there are a few places around town that rent fatbikes that we know about. (Not all are open on Sundays, so plan ahead.)
