What is fat biking?
Similar to mountain bikes but with much wider tires, fat bikes are made for off–road cycling on unstable terrain – especially sand and snow. They’re perfect for getting outside in the winter, especially if you love cycling or mountain biking and miss it throughout the cold months of the year. Winter biking in Canada may take a little time to get used to, but it’s a great way to exercise in the dead of winter and is low impact, making it easy on the joints.
