The 21K course will ride out the Birkie Classic Trail after the Powerlines to Timber Trail where it will enter the 21K only course. The 10K Tour will ride on a mix of Birkie Classic Trail, smaller ski trails, and the 21K course before finishing the same way as the 47K and 21K races.
They recommend that participants be prepared to race in any course condition, on a bike equipped with at least 3.5 inch wide tires. E-bikes are not allowed for any event of the Fat Bike Birkie.
