Event Spotlight – Fatober-Fest (IA)

Our amigos from the Mitchell County Mountain Goats are throwing a fat bike party on October 1st and 2nd! They’ve got a plan for folks to ride fat bikes on singletrack. It’s a novel concept almost completely lost on the cycling industry, but something that we embrace here at the fat dash bike dot com news desk. On top of fat bikes and singletrack, the event starts and ends at Limestone Brewery! Here’s what they’ve got planned for the event.

SATURDAY OCT. 1ST – 1:00 PM
10-mile singletrack ride leaves from Limestone Brewers 518 Main St. Osage. Harry Cook

Bike challenges, games, and general shenanigans!

SUNDAY OCT. 2ND – 10:30 AM
