Fat bikes are built to handle lots of different terrain with ease—including snowy and icy trails. This winter Evergreen Brick Works is all about getting you out of the house and onto the trails with these three ways to get fat bike riding.

Group Rides

Join cycling expert Alex Legum as she takes you through the best winter trails the Don Valley has to offer. Group rides are $10 a person (+ $25 if you need to rent a bike) and scheduled from December through March. They run from 1–3pm on weekends and 6–8pm on Fridays.

Note: Trails in the Don Valley are very sensitive in wet conditions. If it's too muddy to ride, the ride will be canceled. Curious about ride status? Email or check the Sweet Pete's Twitter.​

Private Rides

Want to go with a group of friends? Maybe you’re looking to get something more one on one? Whatever the reason, private rides can be organized for you and your friends/co-workers at no extra cost. Just ensure you have a minimum of 6 riders. Contact Alex Legum at to RSVP your spot.

Don’t own a fat bike? No problem! Fat Bikes are available for rent by appointment. Please contact Alex Legum at if you'd like to take one for a ride. Rentals are $20/hour and $60/day. This includes a helmet and a trail map. You need your credit card and another piece of ID to rent the fat bike.
