Come and enjoy a weekend of fun Fat Bike events and explore the beaches & quaint community of Cannon Beach by Fat Bike. Events planned throughout the weekend include sunset beach ride, a long beach ride on Saturday to Hug Point to view the gorgeous waterfall, a poker ride/Scavenger Hunt around town to discover hidden treasures and tasty treats, a full moon bonfire with Fat Bike games and activities to finish off the day. We will finish off the weekend on Sunday with a beach clean-up and bicycle art project with our friends at the Haystack Rock Awareness Program. Lots of fun Fat Bike activities but still plenty of time to explore and enjoy Cannon Beach. We will have Fat Bikes available for people to demo if they don’t yet have their own. Bring your family & friends and join us for this fantastic Fat Bike experience on the Oregon Coast!
