We will have a 13 mile beach bike ride to Hug Point and the scenic waterfall during low tide. Lots of fun Fat Bike activities but still plenty of time to explore and enjoy Cannon Beach. Each participant will receive a Fat Bike Festival mask upon arrival.
Due to limited availability, we will not have Fat Bikes to demo this year. You will need to bring your own Fat Bike to join the event.
