Last winter in Alexandria while driving in my car to meet some people at a home for sale at Lake Brophy I passed a guy out for a bike ride along County Road 82 and I noticed that the bike had huge tires. I was unaware that there were bikes designed for biking on snow. After doing some research, talking with Jake at Jake’s Bikes and deciding I’d like to spend more time outdoors during the winter months, I cancelled my health club membership and purchased a fat tire bike from Jake’s. My bike is made by Salsa and they are based in the Twin Cities.
I love the bike. It is fun to ride and I am especially enjoying rides on the Central Lakes Trail. Except for the times when snowmobiles pass me, it is very peaceful and it is tough to beat the scenery. I highly recommend it if you are looking for something fun to do during the winter months. Visit Jake’s and if they have one in stock they will let you take it for a test ride.
