Unbeknownst to many, Minneapolis has a tight-knit fat-biking community. Thanks to the members of Minnesota Off-Road Cyclists (MORC), there are a multitude of mountain biking trails developed and maintained within and just outside the city limits that are perfect for fat-tired adventure.
The Minnesota River Bottoms Trail is a local favorite and hosts weekend rides all year round. Twisting through the stands of bare oaks and past the frozen banks of the Minnesota River is an unforgettable winter experience. One would even say that the winter is the best time to ride through the Minnesota River Bottoms because when July hits, the swarms of mosquitoes will ruin any bikers day.
Also offering great fat biking trails is Elm Creek Park Reserve. In total, there are 13 miles of mountain biking trails. Even during the winter, you will find groups of avid fat bikers enjoying their afternoon rides in the deep snow.
