This virtual event will be a 2021 replacement event in the Short's Brewing Fat Bike Series to fill the vacancy of the cancelled Vasa Fat bike Race. All proceeds from registrations will directly benefit NMMBA grooming efforts in our northern lower Michigan back yard! The checkpoint challenge will use trails groomed by NMMBA, Keen, the Yeti, and possibly seasonal roads.
The PhatVenture is a virtual adventure covering approximately 30 miles on the Traverse City Trail System. Each participant for the Phatventure will receive an email with instructions for completing the event a few days before the participation window.
It will contain:
1. A list of checkpoints including:
a. A description of each checkpoint
b. Approximate locations of checkpoints – some will be obvious, others will require more exploration, and some will include longitude and latitude coordinates.
c. The point value of each checkpoint.
2. A map of all the trails that can be used to find the checkpoints, including latitude and longitude lines.
3. Rider instructions.
IMPORTANT! To complete the event you will be required to take a selfie with as many checkpoints as possible. All selfies and a link to your electronically recorded (ie: Strava, Garmin, Ride with GPS, etc) ride must be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59pm Sunday 2/14/21.
As NMMBA has added this second virtual event for 2021, in addition to Huma Loopa Licious, anyone who registers for both NMMBA events will receive a NMMBA tshirt by mail after the Huma Loopa Licious event. Thank you for your support!
