Cazenovia Fat Bike Race



Fat Bikes first came to the market around 2000 and were reserved for adventure-sport enthusiasts because of large price tags and limited availability. In recent years, the sport has gained traction in the recreational biking community as the fat tire is becoming more adorable.  A fat bike is an off-road bicycle with oversized tires, typically 3’ 7” or larger, they are designed for low ground pressure to allow riding on unstable terrain, such as snow, sand, bogs and mud. With record low snow fall in CNY over the past few winters it is no surprise fat bikes are dominating the trails over cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and other winter recreations.

Empire Brewing Company and Syracuse Bicycle are bringing fat biking to Cazenovia on Sunday February 12, 2017!  The Cazenovia Fat Bike Race at Empire Farm Brewery is an event that gets you outside during the long CNY winter and makes bike racing FUN again. For beginners and experts alike, the race includes tech service by Syracuse Bicycle, award winning Empire Brewing Company beer & food, fat bike demos, games and contests, awards and prizes, toasty fires, and great music! Family & friends are welcome to cheer you on. We guarantee they’ll have as much as fun you will! Each racer will receive 2 beer tickets and post-race food. Additional beer and food for friends and family will be available for purchase. Fat Bike rentals are available on a limited basis.

Get full details here on Syracuse Bicycles events page.  Spectators are welcome! Our tasting room will be open for regular hours the day of the race, 11:30am-9pm.  See you there.
