Fat Bikes have been steadily gaining in popularity over the last few years and we decided to rent a couple last weekend for some fun on the Northwinds Adventures property. Although we have not been grooming trails specifically for winter riding, we discovered that our snow track clad Jeep makes excellent bike tracks! It didn’t take long to realize that we need to add a couple of fat tire equipped bikes to our gear wish list. It was an absolute blast! If you are planning a trip to the Keweenaw Peninsula, there are a few local trail options to check out (Michigan Tech trails in Houghton, Churning Rapids in Hancock and Swedetown in Calumet). Cross Country Sports in Calumet rents quality fat tire bikes for $30 per day if you are curious and want to see what the fuss is all about. If you are staying with us at Northwinds Adventures, let us know ahead of time if you are bringing your fat bike and we will make some trails on the property especially for you! With 220 private acres, we’ve got plenty of room!
