WINTERBIKE!





  Mountain Bike Vermont and Kingdom Trails have partnered again for the WinterBike Fatbike Festival from Sunday, 2/7/2021 - Sunday, 3/7/2021
 

**UPDATE 1/8/2021**
 

In light of the continued global pandemic and in the interest of keeping participants and our East Burke community safe, we have decided to adjust the format this year. Instead of running the traditional 1 day event, we will be providing everyone who registers with a "Winterbike package" for $50.
 

The Winterbike Package includes:

  • A limited edition poster & tshirt designed by MTBVT
  • A 2-day pass to the network (if you already have an annual membership, reachout to katie@kingdomtrails.org for a discount code)
  • Access to designated loops
  • A voucher for a meal at a local eatery


WinterBike is Vermont’s premier Fatbike Festival. Now in its 10th year, the event continues to be the largest fatbike festival in the Northeast. Hosted on the Kingdom Trails network, the event is situated on Vermont’s most expansive groomed fatbike specific trail network, boasting over 26 miles of cold rolled singletrack!
