You may be asking, what are FATbikes? FATbikes or Fat Tire Bikes are an extension of mountain biking: they are mountain bikes with substantially wider wheels. We also refer to them as Snowbikes (yes we know there are other “Snow Bikes” out there), Icebikes, and Winter Bikes depending on the Winter conditions we happen to be experiencing at any given time. You may also be asking, why FATbikes and Snowshoes? Because they make remote areas of the woods more accessible, and they are fun outdoor group activities that get you into amazing natural places!

Why Fat Tire Bikes?
Simple, versatility and stability. Wide wheels on bikes not only can be ridden over most types of terrain under most weather conditions (with a couple simple component switch-outs), they create more rider stability, which flat out enhances your experience! We custom fit you on one of our Borealis Flume Fatbikes and provide you with a Specialized helmet as a part of your guided tour or equipment rental package since we know a good fit and quality equipment matters to you. Yes, our equipment is sweet and we are ready for you regardless of your height!!!
It is the traditional Northwoods mode of transportation, and canoe is a great way to explore lakes and shoreline. Tranquility in the glide, rhythm in the paddle stroke, peace in the silence, and unchanged idyllic shoreline scenary are why folks head North. Canoe can certainly be done solo, but paddling together as a small group provides great family/friend bonding and team building opportunities. Canoe is also a great way to disconnect from the everyday, load up, and head out for a few days. Native roots, centuries of travel, and modern materials and technology are at your finger tips.
Because they are the most accessible, purest form of silent backcountry travel. Our snowshoes have great easy-on/easy-off bindings that stay taut in the deepest of Northwoods’ snow! Using our Tubbs snowshoes/poles/gaiters, coupled with your layered clothing, you are ready to access routes with us or on your own and take in great views deep within the untracked backcountry of Cable, WI. This is a great way to get a group to places most people don’t get to see!!!
