Cochrane Now: Fat Bike Tours

Cochrane Now: Fat Bike Tours

Fat bikers–this one is for you!

Due to its enormous popularity last winter, the Ultimate Fat Bike Tour is returning on Mar. 9 to the Glenbow Park Provincial Park. Registration is now open for the two time slots available and it’s recommended to sign up early.

In partnership with Bike Bros, the park foundation introduced the tour last winter. It proved so popular, that the tour sold out quickly and a second was added.

Fat bikers will take off for about a 2.5 hour guided trek to enjoy the many splendors of the unique provincial park, just east of Cochrane. Participants will have a chance to enjoy the park’s stunning vistas and along the way will view some of the historical features of the park.
