Fat Tire Biking

There's nothing quite like the crunch of freshly-fallen snow beneath your tires on a winding, wintry fat tire bike ride. So, strap your own bike to the back of the car, or rent one of ours from local faves like Jack's or Ray's (at affordable daily and weekend rates) and prepare to travel miles upon miles of winter-white trails throughout some of our most stunning Pure Michigan landscapes.

Pump up the tires to take on nearly 100 miles of safe, accessible groomed trails along our Great Lakes Bay Regional Trail system, made up of the Saginaw Valley Rail Trail (11 miles of abandoned railroad corridor from St. Charles to Saginaw, crossing over the wildlife-rich, ice-covered wetlands of the Shiawassee State Game Area), the 30-mile Pere-Marquette Rail Trail (stretching from Midland's famous Tridge to the outskirts of Clare), and the Bay County Riverwalk & Rail Trail (17.5 unforgettable miles of wintry, waterfront views and frozen woodlands). 

Rather not set out solo? Keep a lookout for local fat tire rides & events hosted by Ray's Bike Shop in Bay City and Midland and Jack's Bicycle Shop in Bay City.
