Bde Maka Ska North Beach, 2707 Lake Street West

The 37K Fat Tire Loppet is a point-to-point race, providing a chance to ride your fat bike on the groomed ski trails, mostly following the exact same course as the marathon skiers (with just a dash of singletrack in to keep it spicy). The Fat Tire Loppet starts at North Beach on Bde Maka Ska and ends at The Trailhead in Theodore Wirth Park. It follows the “blue” course with two deviations:

  • Fat Tire bikes are not allowed in the Eloise Butler quadrant of Wirth Park
  • Pending trail conditions, addition of some singletrack on 45 North and Conundrum

Both of these locations will have signs and course marshals directing bikers, but bikers are 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 Puoli and Tour courses do not include the singletrack section.

Can I use any bike?

No. We ask that participants 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.
