718 Cyclery announces "Fat and Frozen", NYC's first fatbike race. The race will happen on Saturday, January 23rd 2016 at Cunningham Park in Queens NYC. The goal of this event is to raise awareness of large tire off-road riding, as will as showcase the work of CLIMB (Concerned Long Island Mountain Bikers). Registration is required (see form below), and beginners are welcome. We anticipate many entries, so please register soon. We will have a fleet of demo fatbikes for test rides and racing!


26+: 26" rims, width >35mm, typically 50mm. Tire widths typically >2.5", e.g. 2.8", 3.0".
27.5+/650+: 27.5" rims, width >35mm, typically 50mm. Tire width typically >2.5", e.g. 2.7"-3,.5".
29+: 29" rims, width >35mm. Tire width typically up to 3.0".
XL: 26" rims, width 60mm-103mm. Tires widths typically >3.5", e.g. 3.8", 4.5", 4.8".
2XL: 26" rims, width 80-103mm. Tire width >5.0".

Here's how it works:

Or, make a $25 donation to CLIMB (Payment due day of race)

Helmets and brakes required
We will need to be extremely sensitive to ground conditions, monitoring ground moisture and temperature swings.

For those new to fat-biking, we will be holding a clinic and a race course pre-ride to get people familiar. More details to follow.
