The FAT BIKE/SNOWSHOE TRAILS OF AFTERGLOW
I BOUGHT A FAT BIKE ABOUT 6 YEARS AGO AND FELL IN LOVE WITH FAT BIKING. I RIDE MY FAT BIKE YEAR ROUND. WE HAD AN EXISTING SNOWSHOE TRAIL SYSTEM AND MY DREAM WAS TO BE ABLE TO GROOM THE SNOWSHOE TRAILS FOR FAT BIKING. THE SNOWSHOE TRAILS WERE QUITE ROUGH AND I STARTED SMOOTHING AND LEVELING THE TRAILS THE OLD FASHIONED WAY, WITH A PULASKI, SHOVELS, RAKES AND LARGE METAL SHAFTS TO PRY BOULDERS OUT OF THE TRAILS. THIS IS VERY HARD WORK AND VERY SLOW PROGRESS WAS MADE. I WAS ALREADY WORKING ALMOST EVERY HOUR I WAS AWAKE BUT SOMEHOW FOUND AN HOUR HERE AND THERE, TO KEEP FIXING TRAILS. FOR YEARS SLOW PROGRESS WAS MADE AND NOW WE HAVE A HIGH QUALITY GROOMED FAT BIKE/SNOWSHOE TRAIL SYSTEM. THESE TRAILS WERE MADE BY PURE HARD WORK, DETERMINATION AND A LOVE OF FAT BIKING. IN THE LAST FEW YEARS WE HAVE RENTED SOME EQUIPMENT ON A VERY LIMITED BASIS TO COMPLETE THE HARDEST SECTIONS. WE HOPE YOU WILL COME OUT AND SUPPORT OUR EFFORTS AND LOVE OF FAT BIKING AND RIDE WITH US. THANK YOU.
We are located 1 mile from Upper Michigan and average 123″ of snow a year.
For the best possible conditions, we only groom at night. We are proud to use Tidd Tech grooming equipment and do grooming research almost every night.
