Fat Biking is a growing sport. Designed for both snow and sand, these bikes have wider tires (typically 3.8 inches or larger) and are made for touring. “We are bikes – we are bike culture, and we LOVE Fat Bikes! It’s been an honor to work alongside the towns of Mt. Crested Butte and Crested Butte to bring you this first ever event,” said David Ochs and Eliza Cress from the Crested Butte Chamber of Commerce. “The Gunnison Valley is excited to welcome Fat Bikers as an extension of who we are, and what we do.”

These five days will be packed with biking, beer, music, and mountain views. Here’s what you can look forward to:
