About this event

WINTERTIME in STILLWATER - FAT BIKE RALLY

The Stillwater Fat Bike Rally event will be held on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th January 2021 in Downtown Stillwater. It will be contactless, and will have a large window of time during its 2 days to self-space and complete the course (more than once if you choose). Participants can either ‘ride’ or ‘race’ the course; with the 3 designated timed racing segments along the course being the only portions that should be raced! Both fat-bikes and mountain bikes will be allowed, but should the course be soft, fat bikes may be your only rideable choice!

Event schedule and details:

Dates/Times: Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th January 2021. Earliest start is 8am, and all need to finish by 5pm . Participants can start the event on one or both of the two days.

Location/Course (see map): Start (and finish) on the bike path at the north end of Stillwater’s riverfront Lowell Park (near Browns Creek Trail Parking Lot, 432 Mulberry St. E. Stillwater, MN 55082) . Riders join the new St Croix Crossings Bike Loop Trail and head clockwise on the trail crossing the St Croix River on the old lift bridge, up the 0.5 mile 8% Houlton Hill and winding back into into Oak Park Heights via the new spectacular Hwy 36/64 bridge, onto (or bi-pass) the mountain bike trails at Valley View Park, and returning into Stillwater paralleling the St Croix River. Participants can choose to 'ride' the entire 10-mile course (including the Houlton Hill 0.5 mile) segment, or by-pass the 2 technical 'racing' segments in Valley View Park (1.2 miles & 1.5 miles) shortening their course to 7.3 miles.

(Verify Strava’s periodic 60-day free trial periods, or only $7.99/mth or $5.00 if paid annually.) The course may be ‘ridden’ or 'raced' as many times as each participant wants during the 2-day period at no additional cost, but racing segments must be completed in order, and as a part of each 10-mile complete course.

Registration fees: Adults (18+) $25.00, Youth (12-17) $15.00. It is not recommended that children (<11) attempt this ride. Pre-registration is mandatory (COVID recommendation), no refunds.

Kids learn mountain biking skills, develop teamwork and gain confidence, all the while engaging in an activity that will provide them a lifetime of fun and fitness.
