Registration for the 6th Annual Lake Macbride Fat Tire Classic is now OPEN! Join us on Saturday February 11th in Solon, IA for a Fat Bike Experience like no other! With two distance options ~30 miles or ~11 miles there is something for everyone. This event will take you on a variety of surfaces including Gravel, Singletrack, Doubletrack, Hiking Trails, and straight up Fat Bike Bushwackin'. Both distances will pass through our infamous Beer n' Bacon Station hosted by the Solon Lions Club! Free shirts for the first 100 registrants, and spots are filling up fast!


Route

The Lake Macbride Fat Tire Classic is a Fat Bike race like no other.  Presented by Sugar Bottom Bikes and The Solon Centennial Lions Club, the race will take you around scenic Lake Macbride on twisty pea gravel, flowing singletrack, scenic beaches, blazing fast double track, hilly and steep snowmobile trails, challenging hiking trails, and some scenic gravel roads.  The past 5 years the fast end of the race has finished at around 2 hours with the back end of the race taking as long as 5 1/2 hours for 25 mile versions of the course.  As always, for 2023 we will have a new but equally challenging course for ya'll.  Expect a lot of the same stuff you've seen in years past with some added surprises of course!

 

*Many of the trails in the race are not permitted for bikes EXCEPT on race day.  Please do not ride these routes until the day of the race.

 

Due to the nature of the weather this time of year the race will be for fat tires only (3.8") and wider.  We will be holding the event rain or shine and freeze or thaw so its important to only allow wide tires to prevent trail damage.
