IditaFat Bike Race Saturday March 4th, 2017 START TIME 8:00AM
Come celebrate your FATness at the 3rd Annual IditaFAT Bike Race presented by Stickboy Coffee and Winona Forest Recreation Association on the BEST groomed trails in our region. The IditaFAT truly distinguishes itself from other races, as Winona's experienced crew of volunteer groomers, many of whom are fat bikers themselves; maintain the trails multiple times a week, using a diverse arsenal of equipment such as an actual fat bike groomer!!
The IditaFAT offers distances of 12k or 25k “ish” or 36k "ish" with a Le Mans start. Winona Forest is located east of Lake Ontario and receives 250 to 300 inches of snow per season. Winona is home to some 30 miles of cross country ski, snowshoe, hiking, and mountain biking trails. The course will be on ski trail widths of 6 to 10 feet. We are working hard to add single track into the course this year. Under the best conditions the hills are ride-able but as with any event conditions are subject to change.
This is truly a Fatbike event and tires less than 3.7 will not be allowed! There will be awards and food afterwards. All proceeds from the event will be donated to Winona Forest Recreation Association to help maintain grooming machinery and management of the trails. Race fees are nonrefundable.
We are planning a “tour” ride afterwards. The race will take place snow or no snow-it’s all part of the adventure! Race organizers reserve the right to cancel the race in the event of extreme weather conditions.
We have to be considerate of those course marshals who are nice enough to stand in the cold for us so our cut off time will be 3.5 hours. A participate must officially finish by 11:30 AM. In the past two years course conditions were firm and fast with average finish times for the 25k around 1 hour.
