We'll gather at the Boat Ramp trailhead at Pearrygin Lake State Park for the first group ride opportunity of the weekend.

Riders can then continue to explore the Pearrygin Lake area and Lloyd Ranch trails. Warming fires will be located at a few spots on the trail system.

Gather back at Methow Cycle & Sport in Winthrop starting at 4pm for beverages, snacks, and more fat fun. Join in the Lit Crit on the ballfield across the street or just cheer on the participants. Chat about the day's riding and make connections with others for more great fatbiking on Sunday.
Sunday January 16th:
No formal gatherings or rides are planned but Sunday will be a great opportunity to wrap up your weekend checking out other fatbiking areas in the valley like Big Valley or Gunn Ranch or even just head back up to the Pearrygin Lake area for another helping of some sweet riding!
