2020 Ham Lake Snow Bowl

February 8, 2020, Saturday

Third Annual Fat Bike Event Conquers Ham Lake!


The first two editions were so much fun we plan to ride again. All the same great social festivities plus a snowmobile race is in the planning stages for 2020

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 still trying to decide the length and categories but will have that soon. 

2020 Categories are still in the planning stages

Good chance we will have 4 classes, two male and two female, younger and more mature age groups. 

All classes will ride together but will be scored separately.

We plan to adjust ride lengths and time out on the course based on weather conditions. Just remembering that last year was brutally cold. 

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