Valdez Fat Bike Bash

valdez fat bike bash 2023

Race a fat bike over icebergs in Valdez!

On the first weekend of March, the Fat Bike Bash in Valdez offers some of the most unique races you will ever ride. You can join a 5, 10, or 20-mile cross-country race around and over the icebergs, on a glacial lake while surrounded by sheer cliffs and frozen waterfalls in one of the most beautiful parts of the state. 

The next day, if you dare, you can ride a snowcat to the top of East Peak Resort and race down the cat track in the Extreme Downhill race. 

The 2024 Valdez Fat Bike Bash is scheduled for March 8 - 10, 2024.
