Big Fat Ride
Group Ride Details:

We are looking for 1000 fat bikers to join us in 2017 in downtown Anchorage.

We are celebrating Fat Biking in Alaska with the second Big Fat Ride in downtown Anchorage. The Big Fat Ride is a new Fur Rondy event with 61 years Alaska’s first winter festival. In February 2016 nearly 500 fat bikers joined in the fun during Fur Rondy.

The ride is for all ages and riding abilities and will be a 5 mile loop starting on 4th Ave in downtown Anchorage using the Coastal Trail, Westchester Lagoon.

Fat biking is Alaskan culture and a way to stay active throughout the long winter months with almost three decades snow biking on the Iditarod Trail. It brings together all ages of fat bikers, whether they are ultra racers or commute on their fat bikes in Anchorage.

Why Anchorage?

Anchorage has a world class trail system within the city and snow single track regularly used by the hundreds of fat bikers that commute and ride in the city. Anchorage has an international airport and a large selection of hotels and restaurants in downtown with a vast wilderness right in the backyard, Chugach State Park with more than 300,000 acres of wilderness bordering the city.

The mystique of the famous Iditarod Trail and Iditabike, where fat bikes were conceived. Everyone wants to come and see Alaska. No better time than now with the explosion of fat biking all over the world.
