Required Items to Bring:
- A fat tire mountain bike will definitely have the advantage on this ride, especially given the amount of snow we have had lately.

- Bike Helmet with a thin toque or balaclava (A Ski Helmet also works well for this event).
- Backpack with water or warm drink in a bottle, snacks, dry socks and extra clothing layers.
