Bavarian Bike N Brew

Super fun day at the FTR finale, thanks to everyone for coming out!  It was a hot one for sure, but just about the time you were ready to throw in the towel along comes that sweet new downhill trail.  Man talk about a fun factor of 10!  It was great to have FTR supporters Clif and Iron Horse Brewery with us to cap off the season.  We had a blast this year racing with you all, THANK YOU, can’t wait to do it again!

The one and only Bavarian Bike and Brew Festival is Round 4 of the Fat Tire Revolution!  And this year may just be the best B&B yet as the logging is complete and we have a brand new downhill trail to look forward to!  Yeah, we’re pretty excited too.

On site camping is $5.00/ head out at Gibbs Organic Farm. Please leash pets and respect farm animals.

And did we mention the brew part?? Camping on site?? Music?? Sunshine??

Registration:  BikeReg  Please Note:  Bike & Brews is PRE-REGISTRATION only and limited to 450!  This event fills up, so don’t delay!

There will inevitably be some cancelations and no-shows by Friday or Saturday morning. Bribery, beers, massages, and generally being ridiculously kind to the volunteers and race officials could get you into the race if you failed to find the internet in the months prior. Lay it on thick and come bearing gifts.

Start Times

9:00 am  Cat 3 – 1 lap
10:30 am  Cat 2 – 2 laps
12:30 pm  Cat 1/Pro – 3 laps

Course Description:  New, new, new!!!!! Spectacular, but rigorous 8 mile loop with 1780 vertical gain per lap. Each lap has four creek crossings, challenging single track climb, and a NEW “flow” trail with massive wall rides and berms for the ride down throughout the most spectacular scenery. This course is not for the timid soul, but will challenge all who commit.

Directions to race

Freund Canyon -From Highway 2 turn onto Chumstick highway (this is a left turn if you are coming from Stevens Pass, right if you are coming from Blewitt Pass). Turn left onto Freund Canyon road (about 1-1.5 miles out Chumstick highway, if you go under the railroad track you have gone too far). Parking is on the right hand side of the road. On foot, by bike, or free shuttle provided, go to where the pavement ends and take a left. You will see the packet pick up table, beer garden etc.

Race packets will be available Friday night from 7-8:30 at Uncle Uli’s Pub in Leavenworth.
