Don’t miss this event in Winter Park. There will be more “cruisers” than you’ve ever seen in one place. Saturday, July 18th, is a big day for all bikes, cruisers and mountain bikes alike. Fat Tire Beer and the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce are sponsoring a great summer fun day at Hideaway Park, downtown WP and at the Winter Park base. Up at the Winter Park Base, you will find hundreds, 800 to be exact, mountain bikers amped up to take on the mountain and each other. The 18th Annual Fat Tire Downhill Mountain Bike Race will benefit the American Red Cross and the National Sports Center for the Disabled. Registration /check in is open from 6-9am. Find out the winners at the awards ceremony that night in Hideaway Park at 6:30pm.
If you aren’t out to test your endurance with a race, you’ll still have a blast at the festivities in Hideaway Park. Watch the stunt teams at 2pm and 4pm in the stunt park. Be sure to find a good spot to watch the cruiser bike parade at 3pm. But why sit on the side of the action when you can enter your decorated bike and travel in the parade yourself. Around 4:30pm get ready to dance until 6pm. You can rest your legs while the Fat Tire awards are given out at 6pm and rev it up again until 8pm with more live music.
