Wanted to make sure that everyone over here knew about this event and didn't miss out on this a once a year opportunity to expereince guided rides of some of the best riding in the Midwest that is just over in southern Illinois. The Southern Illinois Fat Tire Festival is just around the corner, Oct. 24-26. We had 125 total riders last year and are capping registration this year at 250 so make sure to register soon. Registration is only OPEN through the 19th of October, check this link for all of the details: If you haven't experienced the Shawnee trails before you are in for some serious fun, great trails and even greater challenges, we will be based at Lake Glendale which has an over 15 mile trail network, riding there and other east side trails (tons o’ options, just expect some epic riding) on Saturday and then hitting Kinkaid (7 miles) and Cedar Lake/Cove Hollow (15+ miles) on Sunday...the riding alone is definitely worth the trip down, but the event makes it something you don't want to miss.

Similar format to last year, with just a little more fun just to keep it exciting, yes there will be a Huffy toss and lots of Fat Tire to warm up your throwing arm of course (for those amongst us of legal age). Red Bull will be their keeping us in product, Specialized will have the demo trailer on site (might even have the women’s specific trailer too), lots of fun, lots of riding, lots of shwag, another amazing weekend in the Shawnee. October 24-26, Lake Glendale, IL, see the web for all of the important details Feel free to spread the news, invite your friends, tell the world; just remember to register NOW and don't forget to pay online (trying to speed up the onsite registration process). Looking forward to seeing everyone again and meeting some new folks too.
