You might ask what is a Fatbike ? A fatbike (also called fat bike or fat-tire bike) is an off-road bicycle with oversized tires, typically 3.8 in (97 mm) or larger and rims 2.6 in (66 mm) or wider, designed for low ground pressure to allow riding on soft unstable terrain, such as snow, sand, bogs and mud.
You’ll ride places you never thought you’d be able to pedal a bike. Riders are using fat bikes to traverse muddy, sandy, rocky shorelines in epic adventures. You can even tool around sand dunes in the desert, mud pits in never-dry locations, and much, much more. Fat bikes are definitely mountain bikes, but they’re so much more. It might be more appropriate to refer to these pedal-powered behemoths as “all terrain bikes,” as they allow you to–quite literally–ride anywhere.
“Riding a fat bike is a whole new experience,” says Nelson. “You can’t really compare it to mountain biking.” That’s because nothing hugs the trail quite like five inches of knobby tire—it creates a sense of flotation on soft surfaces where a traditional mountain bike tire would just sink in. So while it’s possible that a fat bike might be slower in certain conditions, it can be more fun—and inspire more confidence—to ride on a wider variety of terrain. “Riding your bike in the middle of the woods in winter is absolutely breathtaking,” says Nelson. “All of your subconscious fear of roots and rocks disappears because the obstacles are hidden by a beautiful white blanket of snow.
The expeditions. We start at the Cabrera mountain road which connects mojacar with carboneras and will lead us to a well-deserved lunch in a typical restaurant in the mountains.
