Snow Dragon Fat Bike Race ‘23
Race Details:

Presented By: Chain & Spoke Coffee|Cyclery

OVERVIEW: Fat bike race on double-track, single-track, and bushwhack. You must be age 18 or over to participate.
REGISTRATION: BikeReg (preferred) or in-person race day (plz arrive early). Online registration is open until the night before the event.
ENTRY FEE: $0.00. Yes, free. If you sign-up, please show-up.
VIBE: Race it or ride it. If you're racing, don't be a jerk. If you're riding, get outta the way.
LOCATION: Crown Point Community Center, 6300 Pioneer Pkwy, Johnston, Iowa 50131. Plenty of parking. Additional parking available at the adjacent Terra Park lots.
CHECK-IN: begins at 10:30a in the basement of Crown Point Community Center
RACE TIME: High Noon (we'll stage just south of Crown Point)
ROUTE: 5k loop in Beaver Creek Natural Resource Area. Targeting 60+ minutes for the fast crew. I'll post the route soon. We'll have plenty of double-track to sort things out before entering anything twisty. If you're not in it to win it, there will be a couple nice spots in the woods out of the wind to rest. The route will be obvious, but cones and police tape will point you in the right direction when needed. Let's hope for some snow!
STAGING: Short pedal (1 minute) from Crown Point south on paved bike trail to the start. If you're serious then stage towards the front. More ace = more front.
SAFETY: You must wear at helmet. The loop will cross the paved nature trail in 2 spots - racers must yield to those those out enjoying the trail.
FAT BIKES ONLY: You know what a fat bike is. No, a plus bike is not a fat bike. Do I really need to bring calipers???
AFTER PARTY: Stay tuned
