The Fruita Fat Tire Festival is one of the nation’s longest-running, non-race Mountain Bike events; focused on celebrating bikes, gear, and trails. The bentonite and clay soils of the Grand Valley offer some of the best, most diverse and, at times, technically challenging terrain in the United States. The North Fruita Desert 18 Rd Trail System is the perfect blend of all these with mtb trails for every skill level.
The Fruita Fat Tire Festival is a demonstration event with the goal of bringing Mountain Bike and Gear manufacturers together with avid riders interested in testing out the industry’s latest offerings. 3 days of riding on trails that offer fast but fulfilling loops give riders a real chance to put bikes through their paces while also allowing time for sampling multiple brands and models. You’ll run out of energy long before you run out of new bikes and fun trails. When you’re not riding the Downtown Fruita Venue of the Festival offers more gear, apparel and outdoor recreation-related vendors as well as music and outstanding beers from western Colorado’s own Ska Brewing. Additionally, this year’s festival is collaborating with CO2UT Desert Gravel to host additional Gravel Riders over the weekend and will be working to bring Gravel-related manufacturers and vendors to the festival as well.
So come enjoy western Colorado’s beautiful spring sunshine, world-class trails/gravel roads and enjoy food, drink, and music with friends, old and new.
