On a chilly and windy day like Saturday, most people would probably want to stay at home and snuggle under a blanket than the temperatures. But close to 200 people would disagree with that sentiment, as people competed in the Lake MacBride Fat Tire Classic Saturday morning.

The bike ride is an annual tradition hosted by North Liberty-based Sugar Bottom Bikes and the Solon Centennial Lions Club. This year's edition was a little over 30 miles in length, with a total elevation of over 2,000 feet, providing a unique challenge for racers.

Along the route were aid stations for racers who needed a snack and drink or needed to do maintenance. Also on offer was a “Bacon Station,” where hungry racers could stop to grab a cookie or bacon provided by race sponsor Sam’s Main Street Market, and a can of beer provided by another sponsor, Big Grove Brewery.
