Fat Biking

Gear Up for Fat Biking and Mountain Biking on the North Shore!

Fat biking has become a popular winter recreational activity in the great Northwoods! So bring your fat bike or mountain bike and hit the trails to enjoy the North Shore this winter. Lake County and the Minnesota DNR have created winter biking routes that wind through the forest on snowy trails. The county grooms the fat bike trails to pack the snow and keep ruts to a minimum. Two prominent areas to ride fat bikes include the Lake County Demonstration Forest and Split Rock Lighthouse State Park.

What are Fat Bikes?

Fat bikes are like regular bikes, except they feature 3.8- to 5-inch tires specifically designed to ride through the snow. In addition, fat bikes use a low tire pressure, so they stay on top of surfaces, where typical mountain bikes, cross, or road tires would sink through the snow. As a result of its growing popularity, many bike retailers now sell fat bikes.

Benefits of Fat Biking

Fat biking is a great form of exercise and will keep you in shape in the winter months. In addition to great fitness, riders will appreciate the beautiful winter landscapes surrounded by tall pine forests and the rarely frozen Lake Superior views. Fat biking makes a great activity to experience with friends and family. When you’ve finished riding,  warm up with a hot cup of coffee at a cozy local coffee shop!
