Livigno is getting fatter – on the bike!
Livigno (ITA), February 19th 2015 – During the winter season mountain bikers normally are tucked away in their warm homes eagerly waiting for the snow to melt. But this is now a thing of the past – at least in the mountain bike resort of Livigno. The rapidly growing trend of fat biking has been embraced in the popular holiday resort. Livigno has introduced 20 kilometers (13 miles) of trails, specifically designed for this discipline of mountain biking. Now, visitors can enjoy time in the saddle all year round: http://youtu.be/DLtbO4G5sWs.
It’s THE trend in mountain biking these days. Ever more frequently we find ourselves exposed to the extraordinary wide tires, ideal for crusing across the snow and ripping up fresh powder. Few remain who would disagree that fat biking is a minor niche in our beloved sport. The broad, low pressure tires are ideal for crusing over soft surfaces – making a ride in the snow a whole new experience. This low consequence sport is a brilliant way for beginners and experienced riders to spice up their mountain bike adventures.
Livigno, known as one of the most progressive bike resorts in Europe, jumped on the fat bike train quite early and has now reacted to the high consumer demand. Every year more bikers travel to the Italian resort for a winter shred – it only takes one try before you are hooked. Livigno now offers 20km (13mi) of new trails for fat biking during wintertime. In fact, there is no better place to enjoy the winter season on two wheels.
