Cycle through the Snow

Fat and Flurrious kicks off Short's Brewing fat tire bike race series
By Lynda Wheatley | Jan. 1, 2022

The Fat and Flurrious bike race is back! It’s happening Jan. 15 at Boyne City’s Avalanche Mountain, and there’s still time to register. Worry not about your post-holiday softness or lack of stamina because this race doesn’t have to be a race. As the first of five snowy cycling rides that are part of the flurry of fat tire events that make up Short’s Brewing Fat Bike Series — Fat Chance, Jan. 29; North American VASA, Feb 12; the Dogman Challenge, Feb 19; Huma Loopa Licious is Feb. 26 — Fat and Flurrious need be nothing but a fun training ride to see how you and your fat tire (bike; not belly) roll in winter. Each one afterward can be a race against yourself, with, of course, a cold pint reward waiting at the finish, no matter how you do. Learn more and register for one or all at www.fatandflurrious.com, www.sbfbs.com.
