Ride a Fat Tire Bike This Winter

Called "the hot, new winter sport" by Forbes in 2016, "Fat Bikes" are here to stay!  Whereas your conventional mountain bike tire is about 2 inches across, fat bikes have tires up to 5 inches across making them capable of floating across snow, offering an alternative method of outdoor exercise during the colder months of the year when conditions aren't perfect for traditional winter activities. Fat bikes can fill in the gaps on your itinerary and help keep you in shape all winter long!
