There used to be a handful of those weird fat bike races each winter. To quote O Brother Where Art Thou, “Things is changed!”

Cycling in Michigan is bigger than ever, and that extends into the winter months. In 2013, you could race almost every weekend from April until November. The winter is almost equally as busy. This fat biking thing is only getting bigger, and with good reason. These are some of the most fun events out there, period.
