Substance Projects is excited to announce that we’re running the Albion Fat Bike Festival as the second event of our 45NRTH Ontario Fat Bike Series, presented by Cannondale. Superfly Racing is passing the torch for the Albion event so they can focus on their epic Crank The Shield and Polar Rush offerings. Hopefully it’ll also mean Sean Rupel will get the time to come out and go for a rip around the course!
The event will follow a similar format to the last three years. Join us for a great day of Fat Bike fun! Demos, Poker Run, chilli, beer and a great fat bike course close to Toronto.
When: January 12, 2019. Registration: 7-8 am. Race starts 9 am (last rider allowed to start lap 2 9:59)
Poker Run Start: 10am
Late registration pricing starts January 7! Don’t wait until the last minute!!! (online registration closes 12:01 am January 10, but there will be day-of registration, cash only)
The course will be a mix of fast flowing XC Ski trails and fun groomed out single track.
Permitted Tire Sizes: Same as 2018, we have a Chubby Cat. There is a 3.0 – 3.5 x 27.5/29 Category. Or we have the age based categories for 3.7 and up bikes.
Who is it for: Everyone who likes to ride bikes and wants to get out to a fun event at a new location. Don’t have a fat bike? Well guess what, there are lots of places to buy a saweeeeeet new Fat Caad. There are also shops who will rent one to you for the day.
Food: Chili and hot-chocolate at the finish line. (Feel free to bring your own bowl and spoon. You’ll be our eco-hero.)
