If you’re anything like me you feel a mixture of happiness and sadness when winter approaches and the temperature starts to drop. For one thing, it means ski season is on the way. But, on the other hand, it means putting your mountain bike in the garage for the next few months. Fortunately, there is a way for us to bridge the gap in the cold, winter months.
Fat Tire biking has been increasing in popularity over the last few years. I remember riding through Red Rocks Canyon not too long ago seeing one these ‘mountain bikes’ flying by wondering, “what are those?” Upon further investigation I would come to find out Fat Tire mountain bikes, while becoming popular year rounders for some, have been around for a while and have been most widely used to keep on riding that sweet single track in the snow and ice.
