The NYT seems to be continuing its love affair with Idaho after visiting the state for two other features in the last year.

“What may be bad news for skiers has turned out to be an irresistible opportunity for those who love to ride on mountain bikes with four- and five-inch-wide tires, which are designed to float over snow and sand and still provide substantial cushion for rough single track (even without the suspension common to many bikes with skinnier tires).”

The writer (and rider) visits Boise, Salmon and Ketchum to ride fat bikes during winter. Read the whole story HERE.

Here’s my story and video on fat biking from January: HERE.
