Fat-tire bikes have huge 4-5 inch wide tires that are designed to float over soft terrain(like snowy trails!) and take you where normal bikes could never go. This 2-part workshop will cover everything you need to know before heading out for a guided fat bike adventure on the snowy trails of Pineland Farms. Fat biking is the key to 4-season cycling and one of the best ways to embrace Maine's cold and beautiful winter landscape. We hope you'll take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn and explore with us!

Part 1: (Online) A one-hour warm-up session for a cold 'n fun fat biking adventure!


In this first session we will discuss basic safety and prep for making sure your fat bike adventure goes off like a winter wonderland! Topics will include clothing and other gear, bike setup, staying hydrated and fueled, best practices for cycling safely, and basic winter riding advice.


Part 2: (In-person) Two-hour session on *rented or owned fat-tire bikes.
*RSU5 has fat-tire bikes and helmets to rent, please be sure to select your purchase appropriately!*


Time to lace up the boots, strap on the helmet, and throw a leg over the fat bike-let's check out what these big-tired bicycles can do! we'll make sure you bike fits your body and is appropriately setup for the current trail/snow conditions before heading out onto the trails. This guided fat bake tour is all about fun and winter adventuring, but we'll be there to offer support if you feel like pushing some limits! 


Reminder: Participants should be confident riding their bikes on narrow trails (i.e. singletrack) during summer conditions and will need to supply their own winter clothes and footwear. Contact erik@bikemaine.org if you are unsure or have questions.Fatbike Riders
