People keep asking: “Is fat biking a fad?” Well, judging by the events on the Singletracks race calendar for the next two months, the answer is a big fat “NO!” We counted 52 fat bike races taking place in 17 US states from Maine to California and as far south as North Carolina, where the racing is on sand instead of snow.

Last year just 5% of the January and February events on our calendar were fat bike races; this year, fat bike races make up 42% of the listings. It’s really incredible to think that just a year or two ago, mountain bikers living in the northern US had few winter opportunities to get together and compete. But now that a critical mass of riders own the proper equipment (ie, a fat bike), it’s party time!

Here’s a quick rundown of upcoming fat bike races and events happening within the next 60 days or so. Know of an event we missed? Add it to the calendar here.
