Biking is a wonderful way to experience the natural beauty of Muskoka – in the winter! Fat bikes allow adventurers to experience the snowy landscape in an entirely new way. Fat bikes get their name from the wider-than-normal tires that make biking in the snow possible. This winter sport has been around since 2005 but has gained a lot more popularity in recent years as a fun and exciting activity that gets you enjoying the great outdoors during the winter. Fat biking is a fast-paced way to explore the snow covered landscape and offers an exciting alternative to your prototypical winter activities.
You’ve heard the saying, ‘like riding a bike’. Well fat bikes are just like that. With a few experienced words of wisdom from one of the outfitters in the region, you can be out enjoying the trails in no time.
