Global Fatbike Day Ride

We're meeting December 5 at 11am at Beef 'O' Brady's and going for a ride.

Thursday, July 23, 2015

Thanks to some hard work by our volunteers and board members, Leaders Park is riding really well right now. Some of us were making laps last night and enjoyed the new bermed corners and added bridge on the bypass.

 No trail maintenance tonight but we hope to regroup next week for a session! Again, big thanks to our volunteers - Ron, Mike, Brandon, Ryan, Ben, Bob, Adam among others.

The First Day of Spring!

Unfortunately it's still a little too wet to ride out at Leaders Park. Please give the trails time to dry out as the frost continues to work its way out of the ground. A quick walk of the park last night reminded us that even with the warm and windy conditions this spring we'll all need to be patient. Some parts are totally dry and other sections still have, ah, snow.

Riding wet trails leaves ruts behind that have to be repaired. It could be another week-to-ten-days before things are dry enough.


Trail Maintenance Sessions

FAST is planning to start with Thursday night trail maintenance sessions next week, weather permitting. We'll keep you posted on schedule, timing and plans.

Bike Swap A Success

Thanks to all vendors and supporters of the Sioux Falls Bike & Gear Swap last Sunday! We had a full room at the Downtown Holiday Inn and raised funds to keep FAST moving forward. The next swap is tentatively scheduled for March/April 2017!

Sioux Falls Bike & Gear Swap 2015


Howdy! Here is the pertinent information regarding the Sioux Falls Bike & Gear Swap 2015!

New this time around is this swap isn't just for bikes and bike related's open to anyone looking to sell/buy outdoor gear...bikes, tents, jackets, skis, climbing equipment, water sports stuff, you get the idea. Anyone can sell stuff at the swap.

Tables are $25 up to and including the day of the event. lf you want to sell some stuff but don’t have that much you are welcome to find others to team up with. You work it out amongst yourselves. Or, let me know if you need, say, half a table and I’ll put you in contact with others such that you may share the table space and cost.

Your table registration gets you a 8 foot x 3 foot table, some chairs, and two admissions to the event. You may get as many tables as you’d like sorry, no discounts for multiple tables. lf you have complete bikes to sell, they will be sold from the Bike Corral. The Bike Corral will be just that a Corral in which you’ll put the bike. YOU must keep an eye on it. The $10 fee for the Corral gets your bike in there and one admission. Each additional bike to sell will be an additional $5. NOTE: IF YOU HAVE A TABLE, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO SELL A COMPLETE BIKE IN THE CORRAL. YOU MAY SELL IT FROM YOUR TABLE OR PARK THEM IN THE CORRAL AT NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE.

This year there are around 30 tables for sale. They will be sold on a first come, first served basis. Doors will open for set up at 10:00 AM. The Swap proper will start at 12:00 PM. You don’t have to be there at 10:00 AM if you don’t need two hours to set up. Which table you get will be determined on a first to get there, first to pick basis. The exception is if you buy multiple tables. lf you do that, we'll pick your tables and reserve them for you and can work with you as to which tables if you wish or care.

Admission to this event is $5 per person and younger kids are free. All proceeds from this year’s Swap will go to Falls Area SingleTrack in our continuing quest to maintain singletrack within the city.

Click the link above to pay for tables with a credit card via PayPal.

PayPal-er’s can send money directly to

Contact Adam Weischedel or Brad Blomberg to reserve a table or with any questions. Thanks!
