• Fat Biking in Glenwood Springs, Colorado

Fat Biking Colorado

Biking season does not end when the snow flies. The sport known as fat biking has been around for nearly a decade but has only recently picked up traction as a legitimate winter activity. Glenwood’s trails are an increasingly popular destination for fat biking fans. Try fat biking on Glenwood’s snow-packed trails for an exhilarating ride that is surprisingly similar to the feel and handling of a dry singletrack.

Having the right equipment is the key to fat tire fun. Fat bikes are a specialized bike hybrid with sport-specific frame specs, wide rims and obese tires that can span four inches or more. The extra-wide tires improve traction on soft surfaces like snow, allowing them to go where most mountain bikes dare not tread in winter conditions. With the right gear and a bit of practice, fat bikes tend to handle, brake and corner just like a mountain bike on a summer trail.
