Back for another winter, the Short’s Brewing Fat Bike Series offers some of the best fat bike races in Michigan!
The mission of SBFBS is to highlight groomed fat bike trails in Northern Michigan and to get more people outside when the snow flies. Fat bike racing is laid back, friendly and fun. Few types of racing are as accessible to beginners or as unique for more experienced riders. At any given event, you’ll see some of the fast mountain bikers, gravel grinders and roadies in the state toe the start line alongside folks racing on rented fat bikes; everyone is welcome!
We interviewed the race directors of the SBFBS last year and you can listen here – https://fat-bike.com/2021/12/danger-gnome-podcast-with-the-cats-behind-the-shorts-brewing-fat-bike-race-series/
This year, kolotc.com is helping coordinate the five-race Series with plenty of help from the Northern Michigan Mountain Bike Association. $5 from every Series registration will be donated to NMMBA’s general fund to support trail maintenance and advocacy across the region.
