California State Fat Bike Championships at Big Bear Lake

Race Unique Mountain Bikes on a Challenging Terrain Course in Beautiful Big Bear Lake

On the second Saturday of December of each year, the California State Fat Bike Championships come to the Big Bear Lake area! A fat bike is a type of mountain bike that has extremely wide tires that are ideal for off-roading adventures. In the California State Fat Bike Championships, fat bikes are only accepted for entry into the competition if they have tires that are 3.7 inches or wider!

This unique competition challenges fat bike riders of all ages to test their skills during intense races on cross-country and downhill tracks, with practice days being announced in the days leading up to the competition. No license is required to participate in the California State Fat Bike Championships, though helmets are required for safety reasons.

Showcasing thrills that are exclusive to Big Bear, this competition provides a distinct experience for both spectators and participants alike, with prices given to the top three placing riders in each age category.
