Global Fat Bike Day 2021 AND Ugly Sweater Ride – Champlin
It’s baaack! Global Fat Bike Day has returned to Minnesota with an bonus layer: The Ugly Sweater. That’s right folks, grab your Ugliest Holiday Sweater, your faithful fat bike and head on over to Trailhead. 10 am gathering, 10:30 am roll out. Where? Either location. Champlin will ride to the CR Dam, have a snack, then romp around the Mississippi River Bottoms (at the CR Dam, not to be confused with THE River Bottoms) and ride back to Champlin, stopping at Elm Creek Brewing for a refreshing beverage. And Plymouth? Plymouth folks meet at 10 am with a 10:30 roll out onto the Luce Line Trail for an out-n-back. We’re shooting for snacks on that ride too; with a post – event brew at Luce Line Brewing. Either location gives you maximum ugliness and fun! Champlin Trailhead is at 11350 Aquila Dr N; Plymouth location is 12901 16th Ave N. Expect 15 or so miles at a leisurely laughable pace. Questions? Call the shop. 763.712.0312. Sorry; no demo bikes this year; there’s a global shortage of Fat Bikes ya know. For this reason we’ll bend the rules a bit and let semi fatties along (aka mountain bikes). Helmets required.
