Global Fat-Bike Day 2017

December 2nd, is the date of this year’s – GLOBAL FAT-BIKE DAY! Some of you are probably wondering… why are we telling you about an event so far in advance? Well it’s because you are all part of the planning process! It takes time to get all of your ducks in a row, and gather your regional fat-tribe for some world-wide group-fun. So consider this your early reminder, to mark your calendars and get that process started. This event is purely a grass-roots, community based dealio. no sponsors, no entry fees, no t-shirts, no commercialization and no worries…..just, one of the best times, you have ever had on a fat-bike! GFBD isn’t owned or run by any commercial enterprise or Trail Advocacy Organization. GFBD belongs to everyone that has a fat-bike and wants to celebrate! There are threads about GFBD at both the UK Fat-Bike Forum and the MTBR Fat-Bike Forum. Everyone is invited to get together and join in the fun and DERBY!!

On December 2nd, 2017, people from all over the globe, will get out for a ride on their fat-bikes!  They’ll go for a solo cruise or maybe make plans to gather their fat-bike amigos, for a group ride! Don’t forget your camera, because part of the Global Fat-Bike Day celebration will include sharing your experience, through photos and video! Use the hashtag #GFBD2017. The world fat-bike community is ready to learn more about this year’s GFBD so regional ride organizers, please share your plans for the event! Drop us a note at We’ll post links to regional GFBD rides in our Weekly Dose of Fat reports leading up to the date of the event.

Think about how exciting its going to be, when we all come together in groups and get the opportunity to celebrate ‘the Ride’. The idea behind GFBD is for the entire fat-bike community to go for a ride together and then….maybe derby it up!
