¡Ay CRAMBA It’s Cold Out! Fat Bike/Snow Bike Festival

Mid-December 2016 First Big Snow Group Ride at River Bends

Please join CRAMBA for the annual ¡Ay CRAMBA It’s Cold Out! Fatbike / Snow Bike Festival on Saturday, February 4th, 2017 from 12:00pm to 5:00pm for a celebration of winter riding at Shelby Township’s River Bends Park. (In the event of poor weather we’ve set aside Saturday, February 18th, 2017 as a backup date.)

Come on out and join us for group rides, fatbike demos, hot bonfires, chili, and tasty beverages with a hundred of your fellow fatbikers. Please feel free to bring food, snacks, and/or drinks to share.

River Bends SBR DecalThis year we’ll be debuting the 4.9 mile River Bends Snow Bike Route (RB-SBR), a marked loop through River Bends that’s regularly groomed by CRAMBA volunteers specifically for fatbike riding. For the hardy, add in the challenge of some classic fatbiking by riding the full Yellow loop which swaps some two track for 3/4 of a mile of ungroomed, foot-and-bike packed single track.

Click here for a map of the RB-SBR.

Reflective Snow Bike Route decals — the same ones used to mark the route — will be available for $5/each to help offset the cost of grooming the trail.

Many of your favorite bike shops will be in attendance with demo bikes for you to try!

Meet in River Bends Park, located on the south side of 22 Mile Road between Shelby and Ryan roads in Shelby Township. (Careful you don’t use the entrance off of Ryan and Hamlin; it doesn’t connect by road to the area we’ll be at.) Drive into the park, past the small lot into the main parking area, and look for us to your left. Click here for a map and directions: 5700 22 Mile Rd, Shelby Charter Township, MI 48317.
