Fat bikes enjoying wider popularity in Maine
More ski centers are offering rentals, events and trails specifically for bikes with wide tires.

BETHEL — David Walker has used the Bethel Village Trails virtually every day this winter, but not necessarily for Nordic skiing. Walker said when the snow conditions in Bethel are perfect – which has been the case most days this winter – he prefers riding on trails groomed specifically for fat bikes.

The trail center has started using a fat-bike groomer this winter on new mountain bike trails that wind through pine and birch stands.

Fat bikes – mountain bikes with 4- and 5-inch-wide tires – are becoming more frequent on Maine’s winter landscape. Around the state, there are a growing number of races, rentals and trails dedicated to fat bikes.
