The 3rd Annual Global Fat Bike Summit
will take place over 2 days in Ogden, Utah. The event brings together dealers, riders, land managers, fat bike manufacturers and media representatives to promote fat bikes’ low environmental impact, seek access to lands currently off limits to bikes, and explores the potential for local economic growth opportunity such access can bring.
The two-day event, co-sponsored by Quality Bicycle Products and Ogden City, combines educational seminars, a fat bike expo, a festival, and a race. The first day will consist of educational seminars focused on fat bikes’ uniquely low environmental impact and the revenue potential generated by allowing fat bikes access to public lands. Day two presents the festival and expo, with hands-on opportunities for guests to learn more about the bikes by riding them and talking with representatives from various fat bike brands. Races for both advanced and beginner fat bike riders will be included.
The 2014 Fat Bikes Summit takes place January 24th and 25th, 2014. The expo, demo rides, and races will be held in the foothills above the city on the grounds of the Mount Ogden Golf Course and will be hosted by the GOAL Foundation and Ogden City. The GOAL Foundation
is a local non-profit that encourages people to “Get Out And Live” through participation and volunteerism at local events.
