FAT THURSDAY CYCLOCRITS ARE BACK!!! The fastest, thigh burning-est, big smiling-est, most ridiculously fun weeknight race series has returned.
Every Thursday evening from February 14th (that's right, we love this so much we're kicking off on Valentine's Day!) to March 14th, line up with 30 of your soon-to-be-closest friends and speed past your Netflix- and Hulu-addicted pals.
There's no better way to ramp up for spring than rubbing elbows and coughing up a little icy phlegm. And nothing's more satisfying than crossing the finish line with a frozen perma-grin that lasts till Friday night.
All proceeds from this event series will benefit Deep Woods Trail Groomers!
Once again, Lord Fletcher's Old Lake Lodge will generously host and Surly Brewing Company will provide beer discounts and appropriately surly schwag.
Big prizes every night for both men's and women's podiums, as well as sweet schwag for the losers — we love you most of all.
Winner of the series gets a pair of Ragnarök boots from 45NRTH! Perfect for keeping your feet dry and warm once spring arrives, which we suppose it has to.
$10 pre-reg (link to come)
NO CHARGE to come watch, heckle, and join the party. All are welcome!
Registration @ 6 p.m., race starts @ 6:30 p.m.
This is an approximately 40-minute race, run crit-style by timing the first two laps and calculating total laps from there.
Our course features land laps that also run across the bay, with the option to launch or roll off Lord Fletcher's docks. Studded tires are a good idea — a very good idea.
WHAT TO BRING:
Lights — or buy some from #FreewheelBike Mobile on site! A helmet! Your fat bike (3.8 inch tires or wider)! A thirst for beer, a hunger for wings, and a good excuse for the bruises you'll have the next morning.
