It wasn't that many years ago that people packed away their two-wheel bicycles at the first sign of snow or cold temperatures in the weather forecast.  Now - with Fat Bikes and other advances - enthusiasts are not only "grinning and bearing it" in the winter, they're fully-embracing the challenges and rewards it brings.

A series of community events have been planned to celebrate Winter Bike Week here in the Twin Ports.  February 2 through 9, a variety of educational workshops and family-friendly bike rides have been scheduled to demonstrate that winter biking is fun, practical, and very accessible in our community.

The event is being coordinated by Zeitgeist along with a variety of other partner organizations.

Here is a schedule of events:

  • Feb 2:  Sub-24 Bikepacking and Winter Camping Trip, 5:30 PM - Spokengear Outdoor & Cyclery
