Fattyshack returns to the Cuyahoga Valley this Memorial Day!

Following on the heels of our wildly successful Fattyshack snow bike demo day at Brandywine Country Club this past January, Century Cycles has partnered with the Cuyahoga Valley National Park to bring you Fattyshack 2!

  • Date: Monday, May 30, 2015
  • Time: 10:00am - 4:00pm
  • Location: Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail, Lock 29 Trailhead, Peninsula, Ohio

This time around, we'll have the full demo fleets from Salsa Cycles and Surly Bikes, so with 50 fat bikes to choose from, there will be no lines and no waiting!

To bring the Winter Cycling Wonderland spirit to the Memorial Day holiday, the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, using a $439,516 grant from the John S. &  James L. Knight Foundation, has purchased 12 SnowStar SnowTech 300 snow-making machines. Please note that the section of the Towpath Trail between Lock 29 and Boston Store will be CLOSED beginning at 7:00am on Sunday, May 29, as snow-making operations begin to prepare for the event.
"We know that people all over Northeast Ohio can't wait for summer to be over with and the snow to fall so that they can enjoy winter sports in our National Park," said Craig Kenkel, Superintendent of Cuyahoga Valley National Park. "This new equipment will help us satisfy year-round snow lovers, and Century Cycles will help us kick off what we hope will be a continuing series of cold-weather events!"

As with the original Fattyshack event, cyclists who have their own snow bikes are welcome to bring them to ride on the snowy Towpath Trail. Traditional Memorial Day festivities won't be forgotten, as a barbeque pit will be fired up, along with fireworks to close the festivities later in the evening.

Stay tuned for more details regarding registration for Fattyshack 2!
