PRESQUE ISLE – The Nordic Heritage Sport Club will bring something a little different to The County next month when it holds the Fat Tire Festival.
The event, which will include a mountain bike biathlon, races and a bonfire, will be held on Friday, Sept. 21, and Saturday, Sept. 22, at the Nordic Heritage Center.
Friday night’s activities will include a mountain bike biathlon, pasta dinner and bonfire. Saturday will feature several mountain bike races, including downhill runs and sport and expert cross-country races. Both days will include races for children and fun activities for the entire family.
Organizers are urging people to learn more about biathlons and experience some “sweet single-track” at one of the best mountain biking facilities in Maine.
All events will be held at the Nordic Heritage Center in Presque Isle. For information, call 762-6972.
