Fatbiking in Wanaka

Recommended Posts

Just gloating that I have had two days mtbing in Wanaka this week.

I used a Specialized fatboy fatbike from one of the local bike shops. It was great riding the non technical trials i choose to do. The bike being the entry level could do with a diet; like me. Alot of fun more so that my usual mtb.

 

Beautiful scenery and few people.

 

I made decision not to snowboard in near perfect conditions to go for today's ride and it was the best option.

 

This should go on peoples bucket lists.

No to the fork i think. It was fully rigid, bottom spec.

 

Did weigh a tonne.

 

But the scenery of Wanaka is spectacular so resting & pushing it up the hills was worth it.

 

Fatbike is almost certain to be the next addition to my bike collection. Then i can play at reducing it's weight.

Still miss Wanaka and haven't found anywhere as good as sticky forest and the plantation.

You're right about the views, how many places can you see a lake, snow capped mountains and a glacier.
