Continuing the ongoing saga of North Dakota's first fatbike-only race, the Bikecicle Fat Fifteen uses 15-20 miles of Greenway trails and the surface of the icy Red River of the North. With multiple warming stations, this is the perfect race for both rookies and veterans to fatbiking! It's an ENDracing event, so be prepared for anything.

This race is presented in conjunction with the Northern Star Cycling Club, who have run the event for the past few years after taking it over from the UND Cycling Club, who started it in 2010.

Three laps. Course will be a mix of groomed skate-ski track, potentially snowmobile-groomed river surface and backcountry (fatbike- or deer-groomed) sections. Conditions will vary according to how much snow we get race week, how windy it is, and if/when city groomers get out. This ain't the Birkie, so be prepared for technical (though not unsafe) spots.

2018 course will be one of these two maps according to conditions:

Distance: 15-20 miles in three laps depending on race-day snow and river ice conditions.

Entry includes:  A great race, cash/gift card awards for top finishers, prize drawing.
