Sunday, Feb. 2 at 9 a.m.—RUTLAND—The creative minds behind Überwintern and Winterbike are at it again! Mountain Bike Vermont has partnered with Pine Hill Partnership in Rutland to offer a day of fatbike stoke on cold-rolled singletrack this Groundhog Day. Join in as fatbikers from around New England and Quebec gather in Rutland to lead a charge with Old Man Winter, replete with group rides, demos, and hearty brews around warm fires.
The inaugural event will feature a vendor village with fatbike rentals and demos, rides for all ages and abilities, and groomed packed powder trails for your fatbiking pleasure. Group rides will begin at 10 a.m. at the Giorgetti Athletic Complex at 2 Oak St. Extension (the Pine Hill trailhead) where we’ll also adjourn for lunch at 12:30 p.m. The remote aid station (aka party central) will be located at the quarry (to be confirmed) and will feature a bonfire and our favorite mid-ride refreshers. Lunch at Giorgetti will be catered by our friends at Ranch Camp (Stowe.)
“We’re beyond excited to bring a new fatbike event to the Pine Hill trails – this trail network has said event cofounder Nate Freund of MTBVT. “We’re stoked to bring the party to Rutland and introduce riders from around the Northeast to these amazing trails!”
The $30 ticket price includes group rides, lunch (with both carnivorous and veggie options), a signed original Cold Roll Rutland artist print, as well as beverages. So air down those tires, break out the extra layers, and get ready to party MTBVT style.
