The 29K Freewheel Fat Tire Loppet is a point-to-point race, providing a unique chance to ride your fat bike on the groomed ski trails (where fat-tire bikes are not normally allowed), mostly following the exact same course as the Loppet skiers – with just a dash of singletrack trails keep it spicy. The Freewheel Fat Tire Loppet follows the “blue” course.

  • Pending trail conditions, expect a section of singletrack on 45 North and Conundrum.

Signs (with arrows) and course marshals will be directing bikers, but bikers are ultimately responsible for following the course. Note that the singletrack sections add a degree of difficulty that may not be appropriate for beginning riders that have not done this kind of riding before. The Freewheel Fat Tire Puoli Loppet and Freewheel Fat Tire Tour courses do not include the singletrack section.

Can I use any bike?

No. Participants must use only fat-tire bikes in order to preserve the snow trails. Fat-tire bikes are defined as bikes with 3.8” tires or more and less than 10 psi tire pressure.
