Let's go fat biking in Cuyuna!

Updated: Jan 31, 2023

Fat biking in the winter? Ha! Why settle for a regular bike when you can hop on a wheeled monster and conquer the snow like a boss? Bring your warmest mittens, a face mask, and a sense of adventure. Remember, it's just more snow to play in if you fall! Let's go make some winter biking memories! Here are a few tips.

  1. Dress in layers: It's important to stay warm while fat biking in the winter, so dress in layers that you can easily add or remove depending on how warm you get.

  2. Use studded tires: Fat bike tires with studs will provide better traction on snow and ice, making it easier to ride on winter trails.

  3. Use lights: Short days and long nights are a fact of life in Minnesota in the winter, so it's important to have lights on your bike to help you see the trail and be seen by others.

  4. Check the trail conditions: Before heading out, check the trail conditions to make sure they are safe to ride on. Some trails may be closed due to heavy snow or other hazards.

  5. Stay hydrated and fueled: It's easy to forget to drink and eat when it's cold out, but staying hydrated and fueled is important to maintain your energy levels and stay warm.

  6. Carry emergency gear: Make sure you carry a basic repair kit, a map, a cell phone, and other emergency gear in case you get lost or have a mechanical failure.

  7. Know your limits: Fat biking in the winter can be challenging, so it's important to know your limits and not push yourself too hard. If you're not comfortable with the conditions, it's best to turn back and save the ride for another day.

Fat bikes rentals are available near the Cuyuna Trails at Red Raven and Cykel. You can also check current trail conditions at The Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike Crew website.
