The 2021 Shakedown is Saturday, February 6th
Registration is open!
Get comfortable riding in the cold with your fat bike, overnight gear, and your self.
Do you want to get into winter bike-packing? What about a winter ultra? Find what intimidates you and shake it off! Come spend some time with us practicing cold-weather skills: how to layer clothing for the temperature, how to keep your water from freezing, starting a fire or using your camp stove, trail-side bike repair, and how to stay warm.
Join us February 6th in Michigan at Owasippe Boy Scout Camp for a weekend dedicated to figuring out how to stay comfortable (or how to get comfortable being uncomfortable), having fun, and riding your bike on some beautifully groomed fat bike trails!
We will be limited our event to 20 participants due to Covid-19 safety precautions. We will be taking every measure we can to keep our participants safe. Registration will open December 20th at noon!
All participants that complete gear check, boil water at lunch with their camp stove, and finish the 40-mile route will receive a finisher's patch compliments of Salsa!
LOVE THE COLD
With the right attitude and knowing how to use your gear, it'll become your favorite season!
Join us for a weekend dedicated to learning skills, sharing experiences, and most importantly:
practicing with your gear.
