Mother Nature gave us a gift this November - she blanketed the St. Croix Valley in 12+ inches of snow on November 10, and Winter has set in. The Woolly Bike Club was ready for the snow, and Jason's Fat Bike Grooming Machine (known as "Bjorn") has been hard at work. The result is what I expect is the best Fat Biking on the continent at this point in time. Don't take my word for it, check out what 45NRTH has to say about their riding on the Woolly trails this past weekend - or as seen by CBS news / WCCO TV last January.
Do I have your attention now? Great! While any time is a great time to ride Woolly, there will be frequent group rides on the Woolly Fat Bike trails all Winter. Members of the Woolly Bike Club, Cyclova XC staff, Locally Geared, and other community members will be out Fat Biking the Woolly trails every Wednesday and Thursday nights at 6PM. We will meet at the recently established Trailhead at the bottom (west end) of the Big Oak trail. HERE is a link to the location on Google maps.
What: Group Night Time Fat Bike Rides on the Woolly Bike Club groomed singletrack

Note that World Class mountain bike trails & groomed Fat Bike Trails don't happen on their own. The Woolly Bike Club's volunteers have been hard at work for 8 years building the trails, partnering with the local municipalities & land owners, and making things happen. Doing all of this costs money. Support Woolly by joining IMBA and choose the Woolly Bike Club (WBC) as your chapter of choice.
