For everyone riding or sponsoring the Fatbike Frozen 40, we plan to contact you in the next couple days regarding a possible trail/venue change for next Saturday’s Frozen 40 event. Either way, we are still on, and we will still begin registration at 8am and first wave of ride at 9am. However, we might not be at Elm Creek Park in Maple Grove.
While the Elm Creek Park singletrack is a wonderful place for our event, the trail is currently closed, due to unseasonably warm weather. While they suggested that there might be a possible alternate trail/option, nothing will be known or confirmed until just days before the event. This is neither desirable nor predictable, but welcome to a crazy winter in MN. Many great MN events have been rearranged or cancelled due to weather.
We’re working on an alternate/contingency plan venue. Originally, our contingency plan was at Elm Creek, but all of their trails have some limitations that may make our event unwelcome at Elm Creek. our contingency venue might be every bit as exciting and fun as Elm Creek, and will be sure to have its own points of interest. If you’ve already registered or were thinking of registering, you’re still in for a great event; just be flexible and please be prepared to join us at a different site on Saturday morning (alternate venue will also be in Twin Cities metro area and no more than 30 miles away from Elm Creek).
So, stay tuned here on RideFatbikes.com for more updates/info. We’ll also update you with new info at Twitter (follow @RideFatbikes) and will try to keep Frozen40.com updated as well. Sorry for the last minute changes, but Mother Nature dealt us a wildcard this year. With great sponsors and prizes, and a fun day of riding, this is still a can’t-miss fatbike event.
