|Even this ice will probably disappear by the weekend.|
There are soft surfaces everywhere. Sand, mud, marshy areas. Usually off the beaten path too. Rocks and gravelly areas are awaiting your floatiness. Go forth......prosper!
I get the feeling that some folks bought fat bikes to ride on snow in Winter.....only. While that is their prerogative, I know they are missing the lion's share of the fun to be had on fat bikes. I never see any of the local's tracks on the sandy beaches around the lake pictured above, even though I know many of them ride right around it, as an example. I chase deer trails, and never see anyone elses tracks back in the woods. Heck, even the muddy holes seem to be devoid of fat bike tracks. Weird.
But, as I say, to each their own. Just let it be known that going "out of bounds" is what a fat bike does best. Try it. You may have more fun than you ever thought possible. Or do not try it and enjoy the bike the way you are. I am just saying I feel you may be missing out on the best part about owning a fat bike, snow or no snow.
