"The World Championship of Group Rides"

EPIC Mountain Bike and Mid-Michigan Mountain Biking Association (MMMBA) invites you to join us for our largest event of the year – Global Fat Bike Day 2022!!! All skills are welcome. You don’t need a fat bike to ride with us – bring any mountain bike you have, we want everyone to come and join the fun!

To make it easier for you (and us) on the day of the event, we are asking that you pre-register for EPIC MOUNTAIN BIKE'S Global Fat Bike Day 2022 using our online registration to register and sign the waiver (which we require to attend the ride).

Please make a donation toward the post-ride barbeque cookout if you plan to stay and eat. There is a $10 suggested donation per person toward the meal or any larger donation can be made. You can also become a sponsor of Global Fat Bike Day 2022 by making a donation of $50 or more.

The Mid-Michigan Mountain Bike Association (MMMBA) has graciously volunteered to organize this year’s post ride barbeque and any net proceeds from this year’s event will go directly to maintaining our Mid-Michigan trails.

At this year's EPIC Mountain Bike Global Fat Bike Day, enjoy an awesome group ride on the trails through the scenic woods of Sleepy Hollow State Park. These trails are beginner-friendly and very fun!! The ride will take us on the main loop around the park and also around the island trail for a total of 12 miles. We’ll also provide shorter distance options for anyone who’s interested.

The event starts at 10:00am with the ride beginning at 10:30am.

New this year!! Capital Youth Cycling- CYC will be leading up a family & kids ride at the Global Fat Bike Day event!!! Fat tires not required as long as conditions allow. This is a great time to ride a little, meet many of the awesome people that make up our biking community and enjoy a delicious lunch.

And what's an EPIC Global Fat Bike Day without the world famous ISLAND PARTY?!!! SPIN Bicycle Shop invites you to dress in your Hippie best and join us at the Island Party to celebrate all that is Peace, Love, and Bikes ☮️ ❤️ 🚴‍♀️ Located halfway around the Global Fat Bike Day 2022 main loop, the Sleepy Hollow Island is one of the most scenic and fun trails on the course -- a perfect place for a party and you'll have a blast before you jump back on the main loop to finish EPIC ride!! Let's get GROOVY in the woods 🌲 ❤️ There will be prizes and we'll recognize the one person who exemplifies the essence of GROOVY, and the person wearing the most Hippie! Don't worry, be hippie 🌈 🌻

After the ride, hang out with cool Epic people and enjoy a bonfire at the pavilion! This year the Mid-Michigan Mountain Biking Association (MMMBA) will organize an awesome barbeque meal from Chuckie D's BBQ -- barbecue pork & cheesy potatoes included! We'll also have some other side dishes, salads, snacks, desserts and bottles of water from our EPIC Mountain Bike friends.

A major highlight of EPIC's Global Fat Bike Day is the 4th annual Chili Cookoff sponsored by Denny's Central Park Bicycles!!! What better way to end a crisp fat bike ride than with a delicious taste of some great homemade chili? This year's top 3 will win awesome gift cards from Denny's Central Park Bicycles in Okemos. The winner will walk away with a $50 gift card and once again own HUGE bragging rights of “GFBD2022 Chili Cook Off Champion!!” Who votes?? YOU!!! Secret and special ingredients are allowed (and encouraged!). So, if you also shred in the kitchen, sign up for a slot before they fill up – we are capping this event at 10 entries!!

EPIC Mountain Bike has been recognized three times as the LARGEST Global Fat Bike Day celebration in the world!!! This year promises to be even more EPIC than ever!!!
