Fat Tire Festival

With the ever-growing popularity of mountain biking in the Carrabassett Valley area, Sugarloaf will host the first ever Sugarloaf Fat Tire Festival, April 3-5, 2015, the resort announced today. The festival will be organized in collaboration with the Carrabassett Region New England Mountain Bike Association (CRNEMBA) and Maine Huts & Trails.


Fat tire biking is a cycling subcategory that has garnered an impressive following since its 2012 emergence; the concept and design have been around since the 1980’s.


The bikes are comprised of wide rims, extra-large tires, and an oddly-dimensioned frame that holds the unit together. With the wider tires, some measuring 4+ inches, cycling enthusiasts are able to bike in places and conditions that were previously impossible. The additional surface area adds notable grip and makes these vehicles capable of covering ground on soft surfaces such as mud, sand, and even snow.


The resort’s three-day festival will feature fat bike demos, a guided ride, lunch at the Stratton Brook Hut, and highlighted by a fat tire bike race up and back down a specially designed race course built on Sugarloaf’s trail network.
