2013 Fat Tire Fun Rides

Join us for the 2013 Fat Tire Fun Rides! All Fat Tire Fun Rides kick off at El Bait Shop.

Each ride utilizes one or more of Iowa's amazing trail system. It is one of the best in the nation and gets better each year. Oh yeah.. we make sure we stop along the way for some New Belgium goodness.
