  • Fat Tire Bike Event

    River Bend Nature Center’s ten miles of trails will be rolled and packed especially for fat tire bikers. Usually in winter, a smaller portion of the trails are groomed for cross-country skiers, and bikers are limited to just a few trails. Fat tire bike tours will take place every 90 minutes during the event led by fat tire experts from sponsors Fit to be Tri’d of Northfield and Milltown Cycles of Faribault. Tours will include a brief history of the RBNC grounds and scenic views while biking on some of the best trails at River Bend. At 1:30 and 4 p.m., Christopher Tassava, a fat tire bike endurance racer, will give talks about his racing experience including his 200K race in eastern Idaho and Yellowstone. He will share his preparation, training, gear selection choices, and pictures from his races. Fat bike vendors will have booths in the Interpretive Center with a selection of their fat bike gear throughout the event.
