Fat Biking Another way to explore the mountain

Enjoy SilverStar's 15 kms of single and double track fat bike trails.

A fat bike is a bicycle with over-sized tires, typically 3.75” or wider, on wide rims. The frame of the bicycle has been modified to fit these wider tires and rims. They are designed to ride on soft unstable terrains like snow and sand. They were originally designed to ride/race on the snow in Alaska and for touring in the deserts of New Mexico. The history of fat-bikes begins in the late 1980s when regular bikes were modified to allow racers to compete in the Iditabike (later to become Iditasport) race in Alaska. 

There are more than 15 kms of fat bike trails open for riders and a fleet of rental bikes available.
