Take part in the Norpine Fat Bike Classic, Jan. 23-31. The Classic will be a bit different this year due to COVID. As an informal “fun ride” in 2021, bikers can sign up to ride either a 14- or 20-mile course anytime between Jan. 23-31. The $50 registration fee includes a trail fee and membership to the Norpine Trail Association, entry into a prize drawing, a bag lunch from Cascade Lodge, swag and more. Links to registration and detailed information can be found at VisitCookCounty.com/Norpine.
The Norpine Fat Bike Classic is a major fundraiser for the Superior Cycling Association and the Norpine Trail Association. SCA has built and maintains 35 miles of purpose-built mountain bike trails in Cook County, including the new Jackpot and High Climber trails (which connect Britton Peak trails to Lutsen Mountains). In addition to this event weekend, the Norpine system is now offering over 20 kilometers of dual-use groomed trails for both fat tire bikers and cross-country skiers.
