This isn't your typical Hallmark Holiday. On the first Saturday of December, cyclists from around the world set aside their differences and come together to celebrate all things fat bike. Carbon or steel? 26" or 27.5"? Pogies or thick mitts? All that matters on Global Fat Bike Day is a united love for bikes that can fit fat tires. It really is something special.
Otso dealers have events this Saturday, December 3 that will celebrate the fun. All dealers have access to our fleet of demo bikes. Please contact the shop directly if you'd like to reserve a Voytek demo. You'll also find someone from our team at each event.
Here's the list of Global Fat Bike Day goodness:
Time: Meet at the shop at 9:00am for group ride. Group will then ride to the meetup spot for warm drinks and donuts from 10:00am - 12:00pm.
Details: "Join us for adventure coffee on Global Fat Bike Day. We will have a fire, donuts, hot chocolate and coffee from Northern Coffeeworks on the bank of the Minnesota River between the Sibley House and the 494 bridge at the overturned car (2 miles from the Sibley House or about 5 miles from the Old Cedar Bridge). Hit us up at the start of your ride or the end of your ride or anywhere in between, it doesn’t matter when you get there, we just want to provide you with one more reason to get out and ride. We will have a limited number of disposable cups, so please bring your own cup."
