You’ve seen them, but have you tried them? Ride a fat-tire bike, courtesy of the Loppet Foundation. Demonstrations will be led by junior Loppet students each hour. Then, warm up inside with art-making designed by skier, artist, and Loppet instructor Allie Rykken.
Fat Bike Tours

Learn from the experts about the techniques behind fat-tire biking. Instructors from the Loppet Foundation and youth from the Loppet will lead you in a short tutorial and gear you up for moonlit ride around the sculptures in the Upper Garden.
Allie Rykken graduated from the University of Minnesota in 2011 with a degree in fine arts. Shortly after, she joined the team at the Loppet Foundation coordinating and coaching youth programming in cross-country skiing, mountain biking, trail running, and paddling.
