Winter Bike Camps

I left camp having made some great new friends and having an extreme sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. If you’ve ever had thoughts or aspirations of competing in winter fat biking I would strongly urge you to attend Jay P’s Fat Camp. Be warned though, his “Always Ride Forward” mentality is infectious.

   Fat Pursuit Workshop is meant to give participants taking part in the Fat Pursuit Race, 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 to the race itself and ride some of the course!

   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 in making it to the finish line.

   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!

   If you want an opportunity to prepare for future events (Jay will be your guide and he has competed in many winter ultras including the Iditarod Trail Invitational 13 times!), personal outings, or just have some fun, get your gear dialed, and learn what it takes to travel and sleep outside in winter conditions, we can put together a personalized expedition plan catering to you or your group for optimal learning and growth. 

   From the first-time winter traveler to the experienced fat-bikepacker, everyone will take away useful information from a private workshop. We will touch base on many winter expedition traveling aspects and discuss, practice, and synthesize the essential elements of safe, efficient travel over snow.

   Our five-day training camp is designed for the first time winter rider as well as for the more experienced winter traveler. This camp will further your knowledge and education about winter bikepacking and survival in the variable conditions one might encounter during a winter bike adventure. We will go more in-depth with these things vs our Fat Pursuit Camp.

   Whether you are preparing for an upcoming multi-day winter bike race, personal expedition or looking to enjoy a day ride, you are certain to take away plenty of knowledge by attending this camp.

   Having the right gear that works for you and knowing how to use it, is essential. All the little tricks which we have acquired by trial and error through thousands of miles of winter riding and camping will be of benefit to you. It may save your fingers, toes or possibly your life one day.
