Global Fat-Bike Day 2020

If my math is correct (it usually isn’t) we’re looking down the barrels of Global Fat-Bike Day number nine… 

Design by Chris Daisy Art & Design


Nine years, ago a couple of very clever Brits came up with an idea for a grass-roots – worldwide – fat-bike holiday, that would bring the fat-bike community together, like nothing we’ve ever seen before or since! December 5th is the date of this year’s – GLOBAL FAT-BIKE DAY! GFBD belongs to everyone that has a fat-bike and wants to celebrate! Every year, someone reminds us that some people have to work on Saturday, so If that applies to you, feel free to hold your ride on Sunday, if that works better. This year’s celebrations will have to cope with regional Covid 19 regulations. GFBD has always had a virtual aspect to the way that we’ve historically celebrated by sharing photos of our rides through the internet. Over the years, the trend was to get together in large numbers, but there were always folks that celebrated in smaller groups. This year, social distancing and face coverings might be part of the way that folks choose to celebrate. The last thing that any of us want is to be part of spreading the virus and getting people sick – it’s a no brainer. Our hope is that we can all find a safe way to celebrate while exercising personal responsibility and common sense.

Everyone is invited to get together and join in the fun!

On December 5th, 2020, 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! 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 leading up to the date of the event.

  1. Some of us would see this as the beginning of Fat-Bike season, and for some of us it never ends, I see GFBD as just another spoke in the wheel of our shared Fat Bike holidays (GFBD, Fat Tuesday, Fattest Day aka the summer solstice).

    Can’t wait to celebrate, even if it is a mostly virtual/pictorial celebration of the Fat Bike Tribe!


    • Hey Erv. Wasn’t “Fat Tuesday “ also officially named one of the Fat Bike holidays? That would give us a perfect trifecta! ????

      • Yes, Yes! (see above^)

        It’s a Tri-Spoked wheel of Fat Tire Celebration rollin’ through the year!!
