2021 Ham Lake Snow Bowl Fat Tire Ride

February 2021, check back in December for details

Hoping for a 4th Annual Fat Bike Event in 2021, Feb!

The entire Ham Lake Snowbowl including the bike event is presented by Twin Cities Gateway and The Blaine Festival. With their support we will continue to have a great overall event.

The course will wind through Ham Lake Park, on trails, through scenic woods areas and on the open lake area (If frozen of course). There will be elevation changes and some obstacles easily negotiable by all racers. Approx. 2.5 mile laps, depending on lake ice conditions.



We are hoping to pull off another fun ride in 2021 but want to make sure safety is our top priority.

All classes will ride together. All riders will be given a finish time.

Details still to be worked out but maybe 10 Mile or 7 Laps but we reserve the right to adjust ride lengths and time out on the course based on weather conditions. Just remembering some winter days are brutally cold.

Remember we have a big tent with heaters, food and beer to warm you up!
