We love fat biking. Grand Rapids isn’t just Beer City, USA. We like to think of West Michigan as a pretty serious contender for the fat bike capital of the world!

We’re celebrating our winter riding with a huge weekend, and it’s coming up soon. For the second year, the USA Cycling Fat Bike National Championships are right here in GR. Throw in more racing on Sunday with Winter Rush, and you’d be pretty pumped; but we’re also getting a chance to meet current IMBA Executive Director and mountain bike legend Dave Wiens.

Dave will be at Cannonsburg on Friday, February 9 from 7-9pm to talk to WMMBA Allies and the whole cycling community about the future of mountain biking, fat biking, and our sport in general. Dave has decades of trail stewardship experience and is in a position to see regional and national trends that provide a lot of perspective and valuable information for our efforts right here in West Michigan.

Of course, we’ll also be asking Dave about his six Leadville 100 victories, his many years of racing at the top level of the sport, riding on the USA National team, and why he still simply loves cycling.

Fat Bike National Weekend is going to be a real treat, and a getting involved with the event is a big plus for the community and for WMMBA. 10% of registration fees will go straight to WMMBA and our trail efforts thanks to Winter Rush!

You can also register to volunteer here. 

Make sure you RSVP for our Evening with Dave Wiens here on Facebook, too!
