Cycling on the snow might sound crazy, but with the right kind of bike, it’s fun and will have you soaking up the season. The same trails used for summer rides become a whole new playground atop a fat bike. It looks and moves like a mountain bike, but a fat bike has thicker tires with deeper grooves and lower air pressure. The extra width gives you better traction, deeper grooves increase surface area for better ground grab, and less pressure lets you glide on
top of the snow rather than sink into it.
Dress like you would for cross-country skiing. Layers are key. If you need to rent a fat bike, you are encouraged to reserve one early at your local bike shop.
