The event, sponsored by Lake Bemidji State Park, C.K. Dudley’s, Bemidji Brewing, the Bemidji Super 8 and the Bemidji Area Mountain Bikers, includes 10k and 28k routes. Attendees can also talk with fat bike experts, check out different bikes and take short rides through the snow to test them out.

To participate in the 10k and 28k rides, bikers must have 3.8-inch tires and wear a helmet. The event is free, but participants are encouraged to make a donation to the Trek North middle and high school mountain bike teams.
