The snow is melting, the weather is warming, and biking season is upon us. *Cheers*
To celebrate the start of biking season, head to Fruita April 27th through April 30th for the 22nd Annual Fruita Fat Tire Festival.
Fruita is renowned for its world-class singletrack and considered by many as the best biking destination in Colorado. Often compared to Moab, Fruita is the natural location for hosting this awesome event.
For four days, the biking community descends on this western slope town to check out everything that’s new in the industry, demo new bikes, listen to great music, and take group rides on the area’s most famous trails, like Kokopelli Loop, Bookcliffs Area, Horsethief Bench, and Rustlers Loop.
The party kicks off Thursday night with a VIP party before swinging into full gear on Friday. This year, there will be a special trail dedication, which officially opens a new stretch of singletrack in the Kokopelli Loop Trail System. On Friday and Saturday evenings, live bands will play downtown, and throughout the entire weekend, 50 of the largest companies in the industry will showcase new services and products in one of the state’s top cycling expos. The weekend closes with the traditional Klunker Crit, a ride through town, where participants wear hilarious costumes and ride the oldest, junkiest bikes they can find.
There are many ways to experience the festival. While many of the activities are free, various weekend passes offer perks like jerseys, beer in the beer garden, unlimited demos, and a spot on a guided ride.
