Race as teams or individuals. All levels of ability/competition welcome. Win prizes and race to the finish and after party!

$8/person entry fee. Save on registration when you race in teams of 3 or 4! Register in advance online, at the Gear Hub, or on the day of the race.

A WinterCat embraces any and all weather and loves the snow. Dress up, dress warm, and be ready to bike, snowshoe, ski, and sled at the stops along the way.

Funds raised from WinterCat will support the winter youth programs at the Gear Hub Bike School.
