Bikers need to follow rules in the snow Submitted: 01/30/2014
Madison - Some people want to keep biking, even in the snow. The Wisconsin DNR is warning so-called ``fat'' bikes they may not be allowed on snowmobile trails. Fat bikes have wide, low-pressure tires made for pedaling on snow and sand. Cyclists can use them on DNR state trails that allow biking at other times of the year. That's unless that trail is open for cross-country skiing. DNR officials says most of the state's snowmobile trails runs through county, federal or private land that may prohibit bicycle use. The agency says winter cyclists should check their favorite trail's regulations before heading out. Fat bike cyclists that find a place to ride LEGALLY should still watch out for snowmobilers.
