Been curious about fat bikes and thinking about trying fat biking on the snow? Well, Bend is the epicenter for it. It was practically invented here. These funny looking bikes with really fat and knobby tires allow you to traverse across all kinds of terrain - soft sand to soft snow. You'll find mountain bikers shredding snow covered mountain bike trails all over Central Oregon - from Phil's Trail to Peterson Ridge. If you're ready to try before you buy, stop into Hub Cyclery in downtown where you'll be able to "talk trails" while enjoying a free beer from their in-store tap.
