Revision of Bikecicle Fatbike Race from Mon, 02/11/2019 - 22:16

IMPORTANT UPDATE! Turtle River State Park is unable to groom the trails due to the amount of snow/drifting in the park. Apparently it's bad enough that they got the snowmobile stuck checking on things today! With this in mind we WILL NOT have a race this year. Instead, the chalet will be open from 12-4pm for a FREE (besides park pass) ENDracing 'activity' day at TRSP. Light snacks and beverages will be included. Bring the family, sleds, skis, bikes, snowshoes, etc. and come explore TRSP with us! We look forward to seeing you out there.

The 10th anniversary of Bikecicle brings fatbiking to a new venue: Turtle River State Park! More details coming soon. 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.

Race will start and finish at the Chalet, Turtle River State Park (3084 Park Ave, Arvilla, ND 58214). 

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.

2019 course will be brand new!

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

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

Other info:

A ND state parks pass is required for each vehicle entering the park.
