With the advent of big, fat, knobby tires, cyclists are no longer putting up their bikes for the winter. Instead, they're hitting the trails with a vengeance at the first sign of a decent snowpack. And nowhere is this brave new fat biking world taking hold more quickly than in New York's Lake Placid region.
The Adirondacks are blessed with ample snow and some of North America's fiercest trails. And unlike skiing and snowboarding, you don't need a powder day to have an epic time. So put your skis and snowboards in the closet (at least temporarily), and hop on the saddle of a fat tire bike for your next winter adventure.
