Fat Tire Nordic Trail Etiquette

General Fat Tire Biker Nordic Trail Etiquette:
  • Bikes yield to all other users. Skiers don’t have brakes, you do!
  • Fat bike lane – Ride on the firmest part of the track.
  • Leave room for skiers to pass.
  • Do not ride in the classic ski tracks.
  • Stay to the right side of the trail around corners and look for oncoming traffic.
  • Allow the track time to set-up after grooming and before riding.
  • Don’t ride any old mountain bike out there – Purpose-built fat bikes only!
  • Spread the word about fat tire biking at Giants Ridge – make it fun, keep it safe.
Do not ride on the groomed trail if:
  • There is fresh snow, and you are leaving a tire rut deeper than one inch
  • You are having a hard time riding in a straight line
  • Your bike’s tires are narrower than 3.7″
  • Your bike’s tire pressure is greater than 10 psi
Be an ambassador for the sport – stay polite, educate other bikers, discourage bad behavior, follow the rules, and we’ll all have a good time!
