FCC 2023-24 Sundays on Snow Fatbike Ride Schedule
Ride leaders: Varies
What: Guided fatbike rides on different trails throughout the Fairbanks area.
When and where: Start place and time varies. (Occasional rides may be held on Saturdays.) See schedule below.
Who: Fairbanks Cycle Club membership required. (One-day memberships are available.)
How much? Just your FCC membership.
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.)
Dogs: Dogs are allowed ONLY if the ride is advertised as such. That will vary from ride to ride. Well-behaved dogs only please. If it’s allowed and you want to bring your dog, please consider attaching it to you or your bike. There are a number of products that allow you to bike with your dogs. Bikejoring is popular with many people. For joring equipment, check with local bike stores, Cold Spot Feeds, or Alaska Feed.
Other rides: If you want to go on group rides, but these rides don’t work for some reason, there are others in town. Check our Winter Rides page.
Want to go on your own? Try these suggestions.
