Fat Biking

Fat Biking

Whilst winter is usually a time to switch gears and participate in winter sports and put the mountain bikes away for a rest, some people are keen to keep pedalling year round.

Golden Cycling Club maintain a couple of their trails for winter biking, so bring your own bike, or rent one from Higher Ground Sports in Golden.
