I must start by saying, I admittedly used to be a skeptic of fatbikes. I used to look at them and think there was no way that could be fun, and that they looked ridiculous and would not be an enjoyable experience. As a mountain bike rider my whole life, I just couldn't get on board.
This year I tried it out, and boy was I wrong. It is soo much fun!! The ability to ride a bike in the winter is such an amazing novelty for a bike nut like myself. It isn't the same as riding on dirt, but its a new and exciting experience.
Now that I had a bike, I needed to figure out where to ride. Prince George has an amazing mountain bike trail network, so I started exploring. Much to my excitement, the trail's here are awesome.
Prince George should absolutely be a Fat bike destination for you to consider. We have a couple of zones that are just awesome to pedal and with the community getting larger and larger more and more trails will open up to shred on your fatbike.
My favourite zone in PG has to be forest for the world. This extensive area of trails has endless loops of packed single track goodness that makes any winter weekend an awesome one for pedalling. The trails are all very well mapped out in the field as well as on popular trail map apps such as Trailforks.
It's not only the rad trails we have, but it's also the wonderful community of fat bikers that make PG and awesome place to ride in the winter. I have met so many awesome people out and about who all have the sane giant grins on their face as they pedal during months that were previously inaccessible to ride a bike.
