    center single tracks Trails will most likely include blue dot moose tracks lynx birch meadow Speedway moose meadow lower rovers salmon run and continuing along the tour trail back to westchester The loop through the campbell tract trails can be done in either direction its up to you The single tracks that turn off the chester creek trail and the tour trail will be marked come the day of the ride We will announce what kind of marks to look for because weather may dictate one form of marker over another marking paint on the snow vs flagging come ride time I would like to stress the listed route is only a loose guideline If you are not comfortable with any of these single track off shoots sticking to the bike path as well as the tour and larger trails like moose tracks is just fine and continuing on your way towards campbell creek science center is another option The great part about doing that is you will most likely be constantly riding with fellow fat bikers on the way The ride is meant to be about having some fun and be done at mellow conversation speed The route listed above should be largely doable for some within an 1 5 2 hour range however please do not feel like you must do the entire length of route in that time Ride as much of the route as you can and make sure to be back at the lagoon by 9 ish for the swag give away Be sure to bring some additional warm layers so you can be comfortable while hanging around post ride Also be sure to stash some snacks and beverages of your choice in your packs for post ride or during the ride up to you

  • Go Means Go! “Must Haves” for winter fat biking | GO MEANS GO
    market for a pump and have my eye on the Lezyne Micro Floor Drive HV HVG Retails for 45 60 Gaiters Snow can find it s way into your boots far too easy If you are riding in snow that is above boot height I ll say they are mandatory I m still rocking my old pair of Outdoor Research Gaiters They go just below the knee and they are awesome Not even sure the model I ve had them for near 15 years They don t need to be cycling specific they just need to work Good Boots Your feet should stay warm and dry And remember just because you rode in doesn t mean you won t be walking out Make sure you ve got good footwear It s not necessary that it s bike specific unless you re riding clipless I prefer flats in the winter Frame bag You don t need a frame bag but when you ride with one you won t want to go back The frame bag allows you to fit a surprising about of stuff lower on the bike and to keep it off your back I have a Revelate Designs bag and there are lots of other folks making them Folks like Tupps at Becker Sewing and Design Gloves or Poagies I haven t used poagies the big mitts that stay attached to your handlebars and you just slide your hands into them Cordova s wet climate might not be very well suited to articles of clothing that stay attached to the bike Also they have me nervous in more technical conditions in that I may find it difficult to remove my hands if I begin to fall I currently prefer gloves Waterproof is good warm And I usually have a back up pair Chain lube I ve been using quite a bit of it Riding in snow has been more harsh on my drivetrain than any other mountain biking I ve done I may look into one of 45NRTH s winterized chains Snow Ice tires I would love a set of studs but at almost 500 a pair it might be a while Slipnot Traction makes chains that could make riding on ice much safer at a fraction of the cost You may not need them all the time but if you don t want to be shut out when Jack Frost ices things over then you gotta do something I see a lot of folks on fat bikes riding on some mountain bike trail where it s sunny and 70 That s all fine and dandy the more bikes the better But up here we need to be prepared An adventure can turn into tragedy with a slight change in the weather and a flat tire So be safe ride well and keep the rubber side down What have you found that you can t live without during your winter rides Ryan Living in and loving Alaska A passion
