Fat Tire beer is throwing a summer fiesta this weekend that will make mountain biking enthusiasts drool.

It's going to be a nine-day stretch of races and clinics at the Kirkwood Mountain Resort near Lake Tahoe starting on August 19, and they'll provide more than a few opportunities to fully flex your competitive side. Downhill, cross-country endurance races and nighttime rides for both beginners and seasoned bikers are in the works, as well as a Huffy bike toss, wheelie contest, and movie night to cool down with. The full schedule of events and how to participate can be found here.

So if you need to blow off steam or just want to get some hours in the sun, bring your mountain bike and ride the weekend away.
