Fatbike Frozen Forty update 2-23-12. We’re on. Barring some unforseen change in circumstances, it appears the Frozen 40 will occur as planned at Elm Creek Park. All the details, maps, and most of the info you can envision needing can be found at Frozen40.com. I’ll be thanking our generous and wonderful sponsors many times over, but I can’t say enough positive things about: Twenty2 Cycles, Trailhead Cycling and Fitness, Maple Grove Cycling, Surly Brewing, Peace Coffee, Bar Mitts, XXCMag, PreRace, Cognition Caps, Braaap Energy, 45Nrth, and Adam Turman. Thank you all! Also, a special thank you goes out to our gracious venue/trail host, Elm Creek Park.
Over 20 riders are registered currently, with more anticipated to sign up. Remember, this is fatbike only. Ride your fatbike, ride your friend’s fatbike, form a fatbike team, or rent a fatbike. That’s all that’s allowed at this event. 4 laps of 10 miles will make for a 40-mile event. Do them all if you can, or ride 1, 2, or 3 laps – it’s up to you.
Bring water and any trail energy snacks you need, but we’ll have other food/snacks, a TON of prizes & give-away items, a grill, a heated tent, mechanical support, awesome demo bikes (including handbuilt Twenty2 Cycles “Bully”) to see and try, and loads of fatbike fun. Plus, Trailhead Cycling and Fitness will be having a huge open house soirée at their shop in Champlin (very close to the event venue). Stop by and tell them hi and thank them for their involvement. http://trailheadcyclingandfitness.com/
At $20 for pre-registered riders ($15 per team member) the price is great when you see what this event has to offer. Wait until last minute and you’ll be paying $30 (still a good value). Pre-register here: http://www.prerace.com/races/event/31789/Fat-Bike-Frozen-Forty—Triple-F—Edina-MN-Cycling
