2019 Ham Lake Snow Bowl

February 9, 2019

Second Annual Fat Bike Race Conquers Ham Lake!

Thanks to all the hardy souls who braved Minnesota’s cold to race and enjoy the other festivities!

Until next year, keep on riding!

The first edition was so much fun we plan to do it again. All the same great social festivities plus a snowmobile race is in the planning stages

We are teaming up with the Ham Lake Chamber of Commerce to create a Fat Bike race as part of the Ham Lake SnowBowl Festivities again.

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.

2 Races, 15K or 25K or ride both for an epic day, $10.00 extra for added race.

  • Juniors to 39 Age Class, Men
  • Juniors to 39 Age Class, Women
