Fat Thursday Cyclocrit Series

  • Lord Fletcher's 3746 Sunset Drive Spring Lake Park, MN (map)

You've ridden the River Bottoms enough already! You've taken in more scenery slow rolling through the meadows than any responsible cyclist should. You've been inappropriately applying far too much tread to the city streets. You've waited at too many damn traffic lights, already! Stop the madness! Strap on a number plate, and abuse your body and bicycle like the Fatbike Jesus intended you to! 


The fastest, thigh burning-est, big smiling-est, most ridiculously fun weeknight race series has returned! Line up with 30 of your soon-to-be-closest friends and start getting faster than your couch-bound pals. There's no better way to tune up for the coming year than rubbing elbows and coughing up frozen phlegm. And there's nothing more satisfying than getting through the finish line and not being able to wipe that smiling bob perma-grin off of your face. 

Every Thursday (obviously) until February 22, Freewheel Bike Surly Brewing Company and Lord Fletcher's Old Lake Lodge will be hosting this incredible weeknight fun time. Big prizes for men's and women's podiums, and some incredible schwag for the losers (we love you most of all). 

$10 pre-reg
$15 day of

NO CHARGE to come watch, heckle, or join the party! 

RACE DAY: Registration is at 6 p.m., and the race starts at 6:30 p.m.

Approximately 40 minute race. Run Crit style by timing first 2 laps and calculating total laps from there. 

Prizes will be given to nightly winners, as well as the winner of the series $100 Cash to the top Men's and Women's series winners. (Points will be given for the top finishing positions.)

The course itself will be land laps that also run across the bay, with options to launch or roll off docks. Studs are a very good idea. A very good idea.

Bring lights! Or buy some from our Freewheel Mobile onsite. Bring a helmet! Bring your fat bike (3.8 inch tires or wider)! Bring a thirst for beer, a hunger for wings, and a good excuse for the bruises you have the next day.
