Ride through a Winter Wonderland!


Itching to try out your new fatbike?  Longing for some mountain therapy?  We've got just the place, and bring the bikes!  This 40k event is part of the 9th Annual Stanley Winterfest and winds through exciting and varied terrain all in view of the beautiful Sawtooth Mountains.

The course is challenging but not in a brutal sort of way. The 40K course option adds the most significant climbing but it also adds a really fun downhill. The 30K course turns around before the serious climb begins. The aid station is passed twice on the out and back. The start and finish are in downtown Stanley. Riders should finish the 40K in 2+ hours, just in time for the street festival start. Beer, food, music and other events go on all afternoon for post-ride entertainment. A good family event.

Check in and late registration will be at the High Country Inn begins @ 8:00 am with the Fondo starting @ 10:00am on February 10th, 2018.  Register online here.  Route maps are provided below:
