Fatbike Tours in South Africa.
When I first saw a FATBIKE I immediately thought of deserts and beaches but this was however not the breeding ground for these wide tire bicycles.
About 10 years ago a company in Alaska started manufacturing them for snow conditions, now at last they have made their way down to the Southern Africa adventure arena. We of course are lucky to have more sunshine than snow and lots of sand especially along the coastal regions of South Africa and up in the northwest some great desert conditions.
FATBIKE tours down in the Southern Cape have hit the adventure activity market opening up a playground for Mountain Bikers that was previously not accessible. The only skill you need for this activity is to be able to ride a bike and with average fitness, you can enjoy these FATBIKE tours immensely.
Funny, every time I write FATBIKE it is in capitals must have something to do with the size of the tires, talking about tire size, these bikes are also known as wide tire bikes.
So we add another activity to the awesome variety of adventures available to the South African adventure enthusiasts, now all you must do is go out there and give it a go.
