    I haven't heard of much going on in the GTA of actually planned events. I plan on heading to Hilton Falls/Agreement Forest for a nice fat bike ride, but I would have been doing that no matter Global Fat Bike Day or not. I think fat bikes are popular enough that they don't need to be particularly singled out. Mine is part of my regular rides winter and summer.

    I haven't heard anything for KW, however Grand River Cycles in Cambridge is doing a demo day at Puslinch for a few hours on Saturday.
    The Hydrocut has been posted as closed for the last while, so I haven't been out there. It'd be great if it opens up for the weekend, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's still closed. The trails are likely too soft with the temperatures we've been having.
