Fatbike in the snow

Fatbike in the snow

Last year I saw a lot more fatbike.I always wondered how it would ride.
I can imagine in loose sand /snow it would be very handy. This week during our holiday in Switzerland I had the opportunity to try a fatbike.
I hired a fatbike at the local rental shop. This was just a basic fatbike with standard Shimano parts and a mechanical disc brake.
In the lower area the had the “winterwanderwege” ( winter trails) to bike on.
Most of the trails are good to ride. If you try to ride on a fresh snow part the big tyres are not floating anymore.

It was a nice experience. Perhaps next time a more excited trail.

A couple of weeks ago there was a intresting article on the dutch news page, RTL news .  The did quote a Belgium article saying it is better to start biking without training wheels.

If children start using a balance bike they will easily start riding a bike without training wheels.

We used a wishbone bike to learn our son biking. First we did use it as a trike later on we changed it to a balance bike.  It was a bit wobly the first weeks but after that he did go faster every day.

Finn did biked on a 12 inch mini bike without using training wheels.

If you got something new it is fun to write about it or make a video. It is even more fun if the video 1,5 year later is shown on the Idworx Facebook page.

In 2015 I bought my All Rohler as follow up for my Easy Rohler. More info on the bikes will follow. I used my Garmin Virb to get all the shots.
The post is on the Idworxbike facebook page.

You can watch the video below.

Since then I cycled 5.000 kilometer on my Idworxbike.
