Big Fat Bike Festival

The revival of the Big Fat Bike Festival hosted by the Homer Cycling Club begins at 6 p.m. on Friday, March 27 at Bishop’s Beach, with food, fire and fun.

On Saturday, March 28, there will be the traditional Anchor Point to Homer beach ride for those who like to embrace low pressure weekends. New to the festival for 2020, there will also be a 60k biking and 30k running race. Bikers ride from Bishop’s Beach to the mouth of the Anchor River and back, and runners start in Anchor Point and finish at Bishop’s Beach.

Sunday, March 29, competitors will hit the snow (assuming there is any) and head east to Caribou Lake for miles and miles of riding opportunity. Visit www.homercyclingclub.org for details. Those who want to pre-register can email homercyclingclub@gmail.com.
