Penn Cycle Fat Tire Loppet 35K
Sunday – Noon
The Fat Tire Loppet provides a once-a-year chance to ride your fat tire bike on the groomed Loppet Trail. Fat Tire bikes are otherwise not allowed on the snow covered, groomed trail system and mountain bikes or other non-fat tire bikes are never allowed.
Fat tire biking on the MPRB ski trails is not permitted at any other time during the winter.
The Fat Tire Loppet starts at noon on Sunday – after the skiers have passed through the park. Bikers will start in Uptown, then bike the entire trail system – following the “blue” course – to the Loppet Village in Theodore Wirth Park, with two deviations:
- Fat Tire bikes are not allowed in the Eloise Butler quadrant of Wirth Park
- Fat Tire bikes are not allowed in the Minikahda Club
Both of these locations will have signs and course marshals directing bikers, but bikers are responsible for following the course.
