Biking ... in the Snow? This Sport Could Keep You Fit Through the Winter

If you visit Long Island this winter, you just might see talk show host Jimmy Fallon zooming through the streets on a fat-tire bike. These bikes look a little silly, but their wide (4–6 inches) tires are grippy enough to let New Yorkers like Fallon commute even on the snowiest days. Outside of the city, fat biking is a popular sport on snowy mountain trails where a street bike would never survive. 3 Reasons to Ride If you already love cycling, investing in a fat-tire bike can help you extend your bike season and enjoy the sport all year round. It’s also a great way to stay in shape! As Bicycling magazine puts it, “On a fat bike, you can burn up to 1,500 calories an hour

in soft conditions — seriously. But you’ll also recover faster than if you went for an hourlong run.” Finally, zooming through the snow on a bike is just fun. As Singletracks writer Michael Paul says, “They make you feel like you’re 8 years old again — you’ll be hard-pressed to wipe that grin off your face!” Trouble on the Trail In some ways, that boundless joy is warranted because winter fat biking can actually be safer than summer mountain biking thanks to the deep snow that cushions falls on trail sides. That said, it’s still important to choose your route wisely and take precautions. The International Mountain Bicycling Association suggests bringing along ice fishing picks and rope

if you ride across ice and watching the weather to avoid slush. Bikers should also bring provisions, dress properly, and use proper trail etiquette depending on where they ride. Visit to learn more. A Final Reality Check The biggest downside to fat-tire biking is the expense: “Budget” bikes start at over $500 and quality rigs can cost more than $3,000! Fortunately, you can rent fat-tire bikes by the day in most mountain towns and ski resorts. Also, fat bikes aren’t just for winter — if you invest in one, you can ride it all year round.
