    Fat Tire Bonfire Race at Hale Reservation, March 1st

    The Fat Tire Bonfire will be a fatbike (skinny bikes are welcome too!) race held at Hale Reservation in Westwood, MA on March 1st. The race will be a benefit for future trail projects and to help promote Hale's Summer Mountain Bike Day Camp.

    The race will include an after-party FREE BEER in a heated lodge, an outdoor bonfire and a challenging race course.

    Looks like fun. Is the 18 mile open loop just 2x the beg loop?

    We are still working a final course. Also, it can change on race day due to conditions. We hope to have a 4 to 6 mile loop set up on FB or Strava for others to follow -hopefully Friday- by the end of the weekend.

    If the netra race gets postponed, there's a real good chance I'll make it out for this.

    Dear Chipper,
    Due to reg numbers, we've changed this event from race to ride. The five and half mile loop is coming into shape:
    https://www.strava.com/activities/258624202
    Most importantly, the friends, Bonfire, beer and food will be waiting post ride. Hope you and others can make it out.

    Regards

    Sounds like fun - want to help spread the word. Is there a site to which I can direct friends? Tried visiting the Facebook event, but it doesn't appear to be working.

    Fat Tire Bonfire Race at Hale Reservation, March 1st

    The race itself was cancelled due to the amount snow and the course not being rideable.

    I was under the impression the whole thing was off?

    Race or ride?

    So is the "Fat Tire Bonfire Race at Hale Farm" a race or a ride now?

    I'm far more interested in a "ride" than a "race." In fact, I'd have fun debating the merits of a "fat bike race" over a beer in front of the Bonfire.

    I have a free pass for Sunday. It's my intent to get a good ride in SOMEWHERE. Word 'round town is foxboro has a rideable loop as well as Lincoln woods, maybe big River, and who knows where else...
