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 and Icebikes 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!!!
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!!!
A Bit on Cable, WI
Cable is located in Northwestern Wisconsin and has incredibly expansive recreational resources: from river headwaters to some of the clearest lakes in the State, from County to Federally managed rolling forestlands, we all can enjoy hundreds of miles of paddling, snowmobiling, all forms of pedaling, hunting and fishing, Nordic skiing, ATV/UTVing, snowshoeing, sail and power boating, hiking, trail running, camping, floating, and relaxing in G-d’s Country! Cable is long on untouched natural forest/lake/river beauty, as it boasts a diverse species population (black bear to wolf, porcupine to fox, etc.), and it is short on human population and development. All that combines to make Cable a perfect outdoor person’s getaway. We can show you the way and the very best spots in the region.
