    As long as you get the ride in before it snows Spence, sounds like a good idea to me! :^)

    The weather forecast calls for 6-9″ of snow in this neck of the woods.

    Create a good day!

    Do they make snow tires for bicycles?

    MLAIUPPA: Alaskans have long used studded tires for winter bike riding. However, a few years ago we became the hot hub of the “fat wheel bike” phenomenon. I invite OFA to come and check them out.

    Good day all.
    We have seen the fat wheel bikes when in AK for
    Iditarod races. They seem to work well and if we lived up
    north, we’d have them. Much more sensible than chains
    on car tires.

    I saw a fat wheel bike when I got my second Covid shot. Had never seen one before.

    Now, how about chains for bike tires?

    Mlaiuppa, apparently with the width of the tire and the amount of weight on it, it holds it down so that it has traction. I’ve seen it on roads in Alaska and it seems to really work well.

    When I was much much younger I rode my one-speed Schwinn cruiser bike year round in Montana. The tires were maybe half as wide as today’s fat tired bikes. The trick was to let a little of the air out so the tires were a tad soft and that helped with slippage. Also, you were always ready to bail if you started going over, meaning you would jump off out of the way of bike or traffic.
    Normally I did not ride in much traffic. Riding a bike in slippery conditions can be safer than walking in the same (when you are young). It was a lot of fun! For snowy conditions, not icy conditions.
