Fat Biking on the Rise
Riding bikes in the snow is nothing new, but in the last few years a new sport–fat biking–has exploded in popularity. Several bike companies have introduced models outfitted with extra wide tires, and frames specially designed to tackle much of the same terrain that mountain bikers do in the summer. And as the low snowfall of the last two years has kept powder days to a minimum in western Colorado, the sport has spread like wildfire in the lower Roaring Fork Valley. KDNK's Nelson Harvey took a ride with some local fat bikers last week, and filed this report on the growing fat biking scene.
