The Second Annual Fat Bike Festival is almost here! This year’s event, co-hosted by Pronghorn Resort and Project Bike, is going to be bigger and better than ever with more activities, drinks and good times for all. If you just can’t get enough of fat bikes, or have yet to try one, join us on the driving range this Saturday, January 27 12-3pm
Here are 12 reasons why you should attend Fat Bike Festival. Read on, and then get your free tickets here.
1. Test fat bikes
This event is co-hosted by Project Bike and they are bringing a fleet of sweet fat bikes for you to demo. No snow in town? That’s okay! We’ll be riding on the driving range where rolling grass and sandy bunkers make for a fantastic demo ride. In fact, fat bikes are great in many different types of terrain. Whether you’re a fat bike first-timer or a fat bike expert, you’ll be impressed with the bikes and the experience. Read why you need to try a fat bike when in Bend. In between rides, indulge in a complimentary chair massage courtesy of The Spa at Pronghorn – just one of the many reasons this is “Central Oregon’s best fat bike event.”
2. Drink craft beer
Grab a beer in between demo rides! Wild Ride Brewing, Deschutes Brewery and Worthy Brewing will be serving up some tasty brews.
3. Sip on cocktails and spirits
We know, we could have stopped at bikes and beer, but we won’t. Tito’s Vodka is joining us again this year, as well as Bruichladdich so you can expect some delicious spirits and cocktails too!
4. Eat tasty food
Our culinary team will be serving up delicious finger food. With all of that fat biking, you’ll be hungry.
5. Support Central Oregon Trail Alliance
This event benefits Central Oregon Trail Alliance, who preserves and enhances the mountain biking experience in Central Oregon. Visit with one of their representatives to learn more about what they do and get the scoop from the experts about the best mountain biking trails in the region. Donations to COTA will be accepted during the event.
6. Compete in the time trial race or flat tire competition
New this year, we’ll have some friendly competitive activities. Get ready to test your flat tire change speed and fat bike pedal power!
7. Roast s’mores and warm up by the bonfire
The kids will love to roast s’mores by the large bonfire we’ll have set up on the driving range. Grab your ingredients and warm up for a tasty treat.
8. Listen to beats by Flip Flop Sounds
Flip Flop Sounds will be spinning tunes all day. Watch out, it is known to encourage fat bike wheelies.
