Phat TrED's Winter Cycling Club

 

Welcome to Little Ed's Winter Cycling Fat Bike Club. 

Do you know the best Fat Bike loops and when you should or shouldn’t be riding? Do you have a group to ride with? No? Time to get into this club! We’re kicking off Little Ed’s Fat trED’s Fatbike Club to help promote the Fat biking community. There are many amazing places to ride in our backyard and in our surrounding area with a short drive outside of Collingwood. We’ll explore them all!

We'll be riding Thursday's & some weekends days! Thursday ride and social with some weekend rides peppered into the schedule. Thursday evening rides will require some lights. Weekend rides will be during daylight hours.

When conditions are favorable, and you’ll soon learn how often ride locations change because of snow conditions, we’ll ride Highlands Nordic, 3 Stages, Wasaga Provincial Park, Dufferin County Forest, Mansfield Outdoor Center, SCMBC trails. When conditions change or are unfavorable, we’ll ride Collingwood trails and enjoy more social activities than riding. 

So you don’t have a Fat Bike eh? We’ve got you covered. Our rental fleet will be available for all rides and some locations will also have rentals available. If you don’t have a bike, there will be plenty of opportunities to try one out. 

Oh you have a bike? The only requirements we have is that it’s officially a fat bike tire! 3.8+ tires. Typically 4.0 or 4.5 these days. Studded tires  or not, it’s the rider's choice.
