Roughly 100 riders are expected to partake in the 2020 Snow Crush Fat Tire bike race on January 18th at the River Bend Nature Center.
Fat tire bike racing has become a popular sport across the Midwest in recent years. Riders from all over are expected to visit Faribault, MN to compete in the 15 mile, fun and excited snow packed race.
Cannon River Offroad Cycling & Trails, and Milltown – Premium Adventure Goods partner to put on the race. Volunteers from the Faribault community help the race go smoothly by doing everything from setting up the course to organizing registrations.
Todd Trembly with Milltown – Premium Adventure Goods explains that the course itself is a “non-technical trail” with uphill sections that will challenge the racers. This year’s Snow Crush is sure to be a great race and a great time.
Following the conclusion of the race, will be an award ceremony and celebration.
If you’re interested in hopping on a fat tire bike yourself, you can stop in to Milltown – Premium Adventure Goods to rent or purchase your very own bike. Trembly explains that even though these bikes are durable enough to be ridden across any type of terrain, the Faribault River Bend Nature Center includes trails for anyone to enjoy. You can also sign up for group rides around the town on Tuesday nights.
Just because there’s snow on the ground doesn’t mean you have to hang up your bike for the winter. Just get yourself some fat tires, a helmet, and a warm coat to start your training for next year’s Snow Crush race!
