What are fat bikes? Bikes with oversized tires designed to travel over all kinds of terrain such as mud, sandy beaches, bogs and snow. A fat bike is not about speed, but rather allows you to enjoy the outdoors at a slower pace. Over the years, they have grown in popularity with some enthusiasts trading in their mountain bike for a fat bike. Here in Oscoda, the Eagle Run Trail that is part of the larger Corsair Trail system has been widened for multi-use with cross-country skiers and snowshoers.
