About the Fat Tire Festival

The Fat Tire Festival is a celebration of mountain biking camaraderie. One and all are welcome to come out and spend a day riding some of the greatest trails in New York State. Organized group rides for all ability levels, lead by experienced local guides, will be leaving throughout the day to explore the trails. Watch and compete in the many skills competitions, including a wheelie contest, fast and slow races, and the infamous, crowd-pleasing “skinny skills” contest on an ultra-narrow, raised wooden obstacle course.

All Festival participants are eligible to join our Poker Rally to win great prizes. Our local bike shop sponsors, including Yorktown Cycles, Hickory & Tweed, Down Cycles, Sierra Cycles, Danny’s Cycles and Briarcliff Bikeworks have donated many more prizes to be raffled off.

The Festival supports a great cause. A majority of the proceeds raised are donated to the Westchester County Friends of Parks. For 25 years the non-profit organization has worked to raise money to buy equipment, fund children’s programs, provide amenities and support the Westchester County Parks. Their vision is to keep the parks clean, green and growing. Come out and support a great cause, have some fun and give back to the Westchester County Parks.
