Fat Bike Birkie: The Premier Fat Bike Event of Winter 2021

Fat Bike Birkie

The Fat Bike Birkie is the premier snow bike event in North America. At this race, riders test their skill and endurance on the legendary American Birkebeiner Ski Trail. This year, the event will take place on Saturday, March 13, 2021, beginning and ending at the new Birkie start area, 14875 Mc Naught Road in Cable.

Last year, nearly 1,100 riders competed in the world’s largest on-snow fat bike race. They hailed from 17 states and three countries, including Canada and Belgium. As before, riders will test their skill on the snow-covered and professionally groomed hills of the Birkie Trail. (The CAMBA trails recently were given a coveted “Ride Center” designation by the International Mountain Bike Association.)

Fat Bike Birkie Events and Prizes

Boasting three events to choose from – Big Fat 47K, Half Fat 21K, and the untimed Fun Fat 10K Tour – there is something for every rider.

Overall trophies will be presented to the first three male and female finishers of both races. Cash prizes for the first three men and women in the Big Fat: $500, $250, and $100. Awards will be given to the first-, second-, and third-place riders, male and female, in each age class for the Fat Bike races.

No mountain bikes are allowed; tires must be at least 3.5 inches wide. For registration and more information, visit the Fat Bike Birkie page or call 715-634-5025.
