Point to Point Fat Bike Races: Ride the Ski Trails!
Fat Bike Loppet (33K): Sunday, February 5: 11:15am
The 33K Fat Bike 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 a dash of singletrack to keep it spicy. Expect all the hills the skiers face, especially in the Bog, Butler and North Wirth sections!
- Pending trail conditions, expect a section of singletrack mountain bike trails.
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 Fat Bike Puoli Loppet and Fat Bike Tour courses do not include the singletrack section.
Fat Bike Puoli Loppet (20K): Sunday, February 5: 11:45am
This 20K point-to-point fat bike race is a truly unique experience that takes racers over the parkways and through the woods to a grand finish in front of The Trailhead in Theodore Wirth Park.

The Fat Bike Puoli Loppet follows the same course as the Fat Bike Loppet except that it skips the singletrack sections and most of the largest hills.
