Fat Bike Day at HVNC

Give your skis and snowshoes a rest and take to the trails on a fat tire bike at Midcoast Conservancy’s Hidden Valley Nature Center at 131 Egypt Road in Jefferson on Sunday, Feb. 25, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The conservancy’s fat bikes will be there to try on the extensive trail network. Fat bikes, essentially mountain bikes with extra wide tires, were first designed for riding in snow and sand and are a growing trend all over Maine. Their ability to handle most trail challenges and conditions make them especially fun to ride.

The bikes will be available first-come-first-served. There is no charge; the idea is to give everyone a chance to try out this fun and accessible sport. Please bring your own helmet, and wear appropriate clothes for the day. If you have your own fat tire bike, please come join us. A fire pit will be blazing during a midday break for lunch. Bring something to eat (or roast over the fire!) and then hit the trails for another adventure. For more information or questions, go to www.midcoastconservancy.org/events, or call 207-389-5150.
