Fat biking in a National Park
Fat biking on a trail in a National Park? Now that sounds like a lot of FUN!
Below is a list of Parks Canada places where you can try fat biking in 2017. Fat biking has quickly become the “hottest” trend in cycling. During the cooler, snow filled winter months, you can still enjoy biking…..just with oversized tires. Great for gripping the snow, fat bikes have introduced a whole new element of fun to cycling. With free admission in 2017, now is the perfect time to visit Canada’s national parks and try this new winter activity.
As part of Canada 150 celebrations, which includes free entrance, we are pleased to offer a variety of winter activities at #FundyNP from December 31st, 2016 to March 27th, 2017 including 18 km of groomed winter trails that are perfect for Fat Biking! You might want to make a weekend out of it and reserve a winter camping spot in one of our five yurts, ten oTENTiks or two rustic cabins.
There are so many ways to enjoy the winter at Riding Mountain National Park and this winter, it includes the option to go fat biking around the townsite of Wasagaming or on nearby trails.
