We are less than 2 weeks away from our annual home cycling competition here at Notre Dame, and we are looking for volunteers to come out and help with set-up, registration, and venue safety on Sunday, April 2nd at Eddy Street.

This year, we are co-hosting a collegiate cycling weekend with Purdue University. We will be competing in time trials and road races at Purdue on April 1st, so Notre Dame will only be hosting a series of criteriums on and around Eddy Street.

Please signup for a volunteer shift (or 2 or 3). The Notre Dame Cycling Club is particularly grateful to our home race volunteers because it is through your efforts that our team members are able to compete. With volunteers helping us to put on the race, we are able to set aside the stress of hosting a cycling competition in order to be focused and ready to race on race day.

Good alternative through thick or thin snow

A big smile. It’s the first thing that riders describe about fat biking. With balloon tires that are 3.8 inches or wider, they talk about gleefully riding that “fattie” over slippery sand, stones and — if the lake-effect delivers — snow.

As I’ve written about the fat bike trend over the past three years, I keep seeing more of them crop up on trails. Heck, even I bought one this fall and decided, like others, that it’s a good replacement for my old mountain bike.

Now I ride when the snow is too thin for cross-country skiing. I ride over crusty, crunchy snow and frozen soil. Over frozen grass and leaf litter. Yep, you can do it, too, making laps around your yard.

Details on the Love Creek Fat Tire Bike Trail

Fat biking on Love Creek’s 3.5 mile groomed fat bike trail was a huge success last winter—so of course we’re doing it again this year! • Although the trail crosses the ski trails at several points (where skiers have right-of-way), it is a separate trail and will be shared with snowshoers in some sections.

15370017_1379721992051543_7497165335035738991_oBike Rentals available again! Bring your own fat bike or rent one on-site (snow or no snow) provided by Outpost Sports! Rate: $15/ 1 hour * $25/ 2 hours • Daily $5 winter trail fee required when trails are groomed (Season passes available). Trail fees will not be charged when there is not enough snow to groom. • When groomed trail conditions exist, snow bikes are only permitted on designated Snow Bike trail. When there is not enough snow for grooming, all trails except Love Creek Valley Loop are open for winter riding.
