What We Do

The Fat Bike Girl community was created to connect, inspire and support women who share a passion for riding fat bikes.  It is an inclusive community representing all ages and ability levels from weekend warriors to utlra-endurance athletes.

The goal is to have a comfortable and supportive place where female fat bikers can organize rides, promote skill sharing, suggest gear, and share in the fun of rolling on fat tires! 

We aim to encourage those new to the scene and for experienced riders to share their expertise.

Ultimately, we hope that women in this community will be inspired to participate in events and races and even organize their own. Fat bike events typically have a very fun and relaxed atmosphere.

We look forward to positive images of women with their fat bikes doing what they love best, whether in peaceful solitude or in the joyful company of friends.  We encourage bike advocacy, helping others learn, volunteerism, and sharing the love in communities across the globe.

Who We Are

We are a tribe of strong women from every walk of life, with ordinary jobs and every day responsibilities who choose to push the boundaries by biking through the stark beauty of winter. Many of us keep on rollin’ fat through spring, summer and fall.

Some of us compete, some of us ride purely for fun, and some of us do both.

For most of us, our sole motivation does not come from conquering the elements or ‘winning the race’ but from a deeper place within.  We appreciate the short winter days that are filled with the song of chickadees and we fall in love – every time – with the frosty alpenglow at sunset.  Or for those fat bike sisters lucky enough to be in tropical locales, a day spent riding in the sand and the sun is what fills the soul!

In the summer, we “yeehaw” out loud on flowy single track and are positively giddy about the way our big fat tires hug the dirt.  Our joy is in simply being on the trail.

Happy Trails my friends!  Roll Fat. Roll Strong.
