Iron Fish Distillery Fat Chance Fat Tire Bike Race.

Join us for the Iron Fish Distillery Fat Chance Fat Tire Bike Race. The Otter Trail course is 2 miles of speed, twisting sections and minimal elevation. Each lap in will add it's own new fat tire challenges. Riders will take on 90 minutes or 45 minute of fast, flat and wide open laps on a hard packed loop. Get in as many laps as you can in your allotted time, but when the clock hits 1:30:00, everyone is done! It's a race day you don't want to miss.
