BIKES & DEMOS
The Winter Woolly is a fat bike event. Only bikes with tires 3.8” or wider will be allowed on the lift. We recommend studded tires.
Our friends from Goodales will be set up in the backyard with a handful of fat bikes to demo. There will only be four to six bikes available, so we recommend checking in with your local bike shop for rentals.

Groomed XC Trails: Everything but Faux Pine and Doe Town
*Closed for racing 1pm-3pm
