Fat Tire biking continues to grow in Door and Kewaunee Counties as more opportunities come. Fat tire bike racing is a style of biking that requires a larger tire to help float on top of softer materials like sand, loose dirt, and snow. Randy Sahs, a fat tire rider and sports enthusiast, believes that riding fat tire helps bring people into the community. In addition, Sahs says that the larger tire allows for cyclists and riders to enjoy their sport throughout the entire year.
Sahs thinks that the popularity grew this last winter in tandem with more trails being created in Door County along with the new bike paths added to Big Hill Park in Sturgeon Bay. The new trails at Big Hill Park offer a Difficult and intermediate level courses that are open to the public year round.
