Global Fat-Bike Day brings old and new friends together to ride

A worldwide grassroots campaign that started over ten years ago, Global Fat-Bike Day helps to bring people from the fat bike community together to ride and make new friends. This year, on Saturday, December 3th, there are several rides here in the upper Midwest to honor the mission of this event.

Global Fat-Bike Day fun in the upper Midwest

Here in Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin, find several fat bike events on the first Sunday in December, with all types of themes. From the Ugly Sweater Ride in Chaplin to Plymouth’s Holiday Ride in Osage or Rollin a’ Fatty in Bloomington, these are some of the scheduled events in Minnesota. In Wisconsin, ride from UW Wanderoos in Amery, or the CAMDA Ride starting at Hatchery Creek. Or, in South Dakota, the Big Sioux Bikepacking Brigade is hosting a casual ride on the scenic gravel roads around Canton.
