6th Annual Fat Tire Festival

November 3, 2011

Do you think that riding your bike off road is fun?

Are you Mountain Bike-curious?

Do you have a friend or loved one that’s Mountain Bike-curious?

Do you like pizza and/or beer?

If the answer to any or all of these questions is yes, then you should attend the 6th Annual Fat Tire Festival at Lake Crabtree County Park in Cary.

On Sunday, Nov. 6th, from 10am to 3pm, a bunch of trail-loving cyclists, and a handful of businesses that cater to them, will be hanging out, riding trails, trying out new bikes, eating pizza, drinking beer, and scheming ways to ride more and work less all year long.
