17th Annual Fat & Skinny Tire Fest: 2020 Countryside Ride & Century

Saturday 16th May 2020

Green Earth Multisport: 1009 East Canal St, Winona Lake, United States



Join us for our festive, recreational road tour heading southeast from Winona Lake through Kosciusko, Whitley, and Wabash Counties. Choose one of our family-friendly routes 12 miles, 20, 40, 62 (metric century), and 100 (century) miles of rolling country roads. Of course, great food, snacks, and drinks will be served at our 3 SAG stops. 

Preregistered participants will receive great swag, event t-shirt, freebies, and discounts from festival sponsors, Trailhouse, Green Earth Multisport, and the Village at Winona shops and restaurants. Kids under 16 can ride for free with an adult (however, they will not be provided an event t-shirt, but you can purchase additional shirts).

Post ride meal provided by Cerulean Restaurant (an Indiana restaurant-of-the-year award winner) will be served in the big tent next to Green Earth Multisport.

Beer will be available for purchase, so you can enjoy a nice, cold pint upon returning to The Village at Winona to celebrate your accomplishments. 

After the ride, stay to check out the free Historical Village at Winona Tour. This 3-4-mile casual ride will provide a glimpse into the storied history of Winona Lake. 

Come early or stay longer and enjoy the rest of the 17th Annual Fat & Skinny Tire Fest events.
