Global Fat Bike Day
Fat Bike Day is a Fat Bike Day where you can enjoy all the thrills of mountain biking and rough terrain.
Fat tires are a classic feature of bicycles, although they have been around for over 100 years. Modern versions were introduced in the 1970s. Fat bikes are designed to increase the surface area of the tires, which enhances the riding experience. This tire is particularly appreciated by mountain bikers who use it to smoothen out rough terrain.
Many of these bicycles were originally created by re-inventing bike frames with wide tires. In the late 1990s, Interbike brought together designers to discuss and improve the design of wide bike tires. However, they didn’t have their current name.
Mike Gronewald was an avid bike builder and designer. He was in Alaska at the time when he started calling his wide-tired bike a “fatbike”. The fat bikes were custom-made.
A Minnesota company called “Pugsley” began selling fat bike frames for commercial use in 2005. As the industry grows in popularity, fat bikes have been featured by new brands.
Global Fat Bike Day began in 2012, and has grown in popularity in countries where fat bikes are more popular such as Alaska, Mexico, and Minnesota.
Global Fat Bike Day is open to everyone around the globe. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Fat bike owners should take their fat bikes out on rough terrain to celebrate Fat Bike Day. A fat bike can be used to enjoy warmer weather, such as riding in the sun and putting on your winter gear.
Are you interested in a fat bike, but don’t own one? This is the time to investigate it further!

Giant Bicycles, Rocky Mountain and Borealis are some of the most well-known brands.
Are you unsure if you will enjoy riding a fatbike? Fat bikes are now commercially available for over a decade. This is because they can be purchased used or pre-owned.
