Winter Biking on a Fat Tire Bike – Seminar Fri, Nov 22nd at North House

As part of North House’s annual Winterer’s Gathering, a seminar is being offered called “Fat Tire Biking for Winter Lovers.” The seminar will be at North House at 4 pm on Friday, November 22nd.

Fat Tire Biking for Winter Lovers
with Chris Gibbs / Friday, 4 pm
Snowshoes, and skis are not the only ways to travel through the winter woods. Plenty of people are turning to two wheels as a means of winter locomotion: fat tire biking opens up a whole new way to explore winter landscapes. Chris Gibbs, photographer, explorer and fat tire biking enthusiast will introduce the fat tire bike and related equipment and lead a discussion.

For those of you that are already fat tire bike enthusiasts, there is also a fat tire ride this Saturday, November 23rd. Meet at North House Folk School at 11:30, to carpool from there up the Gunflint somewhere.
