New of­fer­ing for Trails

The Glengarry News - - Sports in the Glens -

The Sum­mer­stown Trails are wel­com­ing a new sport this sea­son, as Fat Bikes will be able to take ad­van­tage of 10 km of groomed trails in the for­est.

The project is a part­ner­ship be­tween the Friends of the Sum­mer­stown Trails and the Raisin Re­gion Con­ser­va­tion Au­thor­ity. Fat bikes, also known as snow bikes, have wide tires with low pres­sure, help­ing to pro­vide riders with more sta­bil­ity and traction. The bikes also are un­able to achieve much speed. Riders are ex­pected to fol­low trail eti­quette, yield­ing to walk­ers and snow­shoers. A de­mon­stra­tion will take place as part of the Trails’ of­fi­cial open­ing on Jan. 6.
