Great news for snow bike riders this winter season. As the new sport is gaining popularity in Marquette County, the Noquemanon Trail Network is responding with desginated trails for snow bikes on the NTN system.
They’re popping up across the region this winter: snow bike races. Organizers of the Marquette General Health System Noquemanon Ski Marathon are joining the action, by offering the first snowbike race on the Noquemanon Trail Network, the Sunday after the Noquemanon Ski Marathon.
The 25k snow bike race gets underway Sunday, January 29th at 10:40 a.m. at the Forestville trail head. For more information on the event and how to register, check out the press release below.

For riders who live by the mail carrier credo (to bike)…“in sun, rain, snow or sleet”… the 2012 “Fit Strip Fat Tire Bike Series” is a chance to spin legs on snowy trails while racing for glory.
The second race in the series is scheduled for Sunday, January 22nd, at 1:00 p.m. at the Fit Strip in Marquette. The casual race is open to all riders and all bike types, and runs for 45 minutes +1 lap.

Resolved to enjoy the fresh snowfall, while spinning their legs in the new year, riders rang in 2012 with the first of four in the “Fit Strip Fat Tire Bike Series”, in Marquette on Sunday.
The series benefits grooming operations at the Fit Strip. The Marquette City Park is groomed for cross country skiing and snowshoeing. Riders donated their entry fee toward the endeavour, which will help pay for the equipment used by volunteers of the Noquemanon Trail Network to groom.
