Looks like ol’ Tony B started something that had legs last year even though he ended up with a broken foot! He’d hatched a plan to get a group of fatbikers together on Fat Tuesday at the Ray’s in Milwaukee and we had a good turnout along with enthusiastic support from the local manager who got us a reduced rate for the night. While several of us had been there before on fatbikes, alone or in small groups, the camaraderie of a big group of fatbike brethren is a great thing!
This year Ray’s has taken the initiative to make a full-fledged event out of the idea and offer Free Admission to Fatbike riders on Fat Tuesday, March 4th, from opening at Noon until 10PM at both the Milwaukee and Cleveland Ray’s locations.
Besides Fat-Bike.com Ray’s has teamed up with Trek Bicycle to make this the best event it can be, PLUS, in Cleveland you have the addition of Fat Head’s Brewery & Saloon and Eddys Bike Shop to make your after ride party continue long into the evening. Plans are still being laid for Milwaukee so keep an eye out on the Ray’s Facebook Page for more info.
If you want to go check either of these events out make sure that you go to the Ray’s site and read the info about the requirement for a waiver!
