FAT PURSUIT WORKSHOP
IS A 3 DAY CAMP
Fat Pursuit Workshop is meant to give participants taking part in the Fat Pursuit (but not limited to those participants) an opportunity to test gear, acclimate to the environment and elevation and learn additional winter travel cycling tips and tricks. We will also give you a little more insight into the Fat Pursuit itself and ride some of the course!
Considering this is a 3-day camp and prior to the Fat Pursuit, we will be concentrating on “setting yourself up for success” when it comes to an event. We will touch base on many winter expedition traveling aspects but spend most of our time discussing, practicing and learning things we feel are most important to get to the finish line of an event where efficient travel and taking care of yourself becomes most important for one’s success.
This is an incredible way to boost your confidence and give yourself a "shake down" before the Fat Pursuit if you are participating in it!
A SMALL CAMP ON A BIG ADVENTURE
Fat Biking in the Yellowstone Region!
Professional instruction from accomplished winter cycling guides.
2 dinners and 2 lunches (we will have coffee, other drinks, and some simple food/snacks around but please bring things you like and breakfast for yourselves. Add water style breakfast is recommended as we will encourage you to boil water with your stove when you wake up).
Base Camp - Island Park, Idaho. Location will be sent to you upon registration (You will be able to park your car and store things at base camp. It will be a heated facility with a bathroom, kitchen and beds).
Feel free to bring extra gear and try different things.
The structure of the camp is to sleep outside both nights but the base camp is available as a safety net if something was to go wrong or if you’re just not comfortable for one reason or another and want to sleep indoors.

With that said we may challenge you in some cases but here to help and guide you.
Breakfast, Lunch, and Trail Snacks
Using your stove and boiling water is a priceless winter discipline. We expect you to do this each morning and is a great way to start your day, making your breakfast and/or cup of coffee.
