Getting ready for winter cycling!

I’ve asked before–Is this the year to try snow biking?–and apparently lots of you are saying yes.

If you’re interested now might be the time to get ready. If you want lessons, I like the folks at Horse Shoe resort.

That said, you don’t need lessons. We thought it was a nice way to try out the bikes to see if we liked fat biking and get some tips on how to ride them. Riding around on wide local trails isn’t particularly technical. I love that the fat bike tires seem able to ride over just about anything. The one thing I do need/want are warmer winter boots for cycling. All the websites that sell them say that they are experiencing a much higher order volume than usual. Hmmm. Notice a trend?

Do you fat bike? Do you have boot recommendations? Send them my way.
