·         What if I don’t own a fat bike? Gunstock Outdoor Center has rentals and we’re hoping to have a few bike brands with demos on site. You may want to reserve one in advance – see the Gear page for details. 

·        What if I am not the “racer” type?  Not a problem – do a Tour instead OR feel free to enter a race anyway. Think of it as a timed ride with friends!

·         Do I have to wear a helmet?
Yes, all participants are required to wear a US DOT approved or CPSC standard helmet. No brain bucket? Then you can’t ride.  

·         What about the weather?
We’re hearty New Englanders and plan to roll rain, snow or shine….unless conditions are absolutely terrible, and then we’ll post cancellation/re-schedule notices.

Dress appropriately in layers, consider using hand and foot warmer paks. 

·         What if I register but can’t ride?
We will miss you but, sorry, Registration fees are non-refundable.
