Where is it? Besides Mahone Bay, I can’t find an actual location

I will be there repping the shop. Excited about it. Always a great time!

Usually can find information at Sweet Ride Cycling, with parking available on nearby Clairmont Street. Car-pooling with someone is a decent idea if you’re unsure where you’re going.

It’s at the Mahone Bay Centre. Updating the original post with that info.

If I brought my three teenage kids, what are the odds there’d be enough demos for them to try? I have my own rig.


i think if they fit adult frame sizes you’ll be good although if they are all size small they might not all go out at once but they’ll get out.
If they need a 24” wheel/ kids fatbike that will be tougher, I think there was 1 kids fatty there last year, not sure on the availability this year.
Some great food/drink, music, lots of like-minded people and a venue full of fatbikes makes for good times.

Yeah, my girls and wife can likely all ride mediums, but my son might need a smaller frame. Thanks for the intel TT.

NP. Drop Rose @ Sweet Ride a call if you need any deeper intel, she knows what’s up!

Sounds like a great time. Enjoy!
