Fat Biking this Winter in Rice Lake, WI


Curriers Lakeview Lodge can help you rent a fat bike and enjoy fat biking in our area. Travel Wisconsin posted this additional information! Check it out! From improved traction on dirt, to flotation when riding through snow, the over-sized tires of a fat bike let you roll where you have not rolled before.
What is Winter Fat Biking?
Some of Wisconsin’s most beautiful natural areas become inaccessible once the snow hits each winter. But a trend called fat biking is changing that! Once you see the oversized, balloon-like tires on these fat bikes, you’ll immediately understand where the name comes from. Fat bikes have extra-wide rims with low-pressure tires making it possible to cruise on soft terrain like snow.
Where Can I Ride?
In winter, whether riding groomed single-track trails, frozen lakes or fresh powder, fat bikes have extended the biking season and added a whole new twist for winter adventurers. Be aware that it is NOT legal to ride fat bikes on most snowmobile and cross-country ski trails, but there are some exceptions, so always check with the land manager before heading out. Trails often have restrictions on a minimum tire width and a max tire pressure, so normal mountain bikes don’t always qualify for fat bike trails.
The Department of Natural Resources offers guidelines about where fat bikes are allowed and the International Mountain Bicycling Association gives riders tips on fat biking best practices.


If anyone was interested in renting out fat tire bikes please contact Grinders in Rice lake Wi. : (715) 736-7858  For just $75 a day you can enjoy this wonderful way to explore the outdoors. If mountain bike riding excites you during the summer why stop riding? Fat tire bike riding is becoming a very enjoyable winter sport.


Skiing

What is more exciting than having fun and working out at the same time? With an estimate of 700 snow covered trails for cross country skiing in Wisconsin it has been the most ideal sport for family and friends to enjoy. It is an excellent aerobic workout because no single muscle group is overstressed. The activity can be sustained for hours on end. Not only is it a great workout but has many other benefits as well. It promotes social engagement; Maybe a great date idea? It helps relieve stress; Escaping to the pine forested wild provides you with some very therapeutic thinking time. It improves endurance, and lastly allows you to connect with nature.
