Traverse City is well-known for two unique hobbies -- cycling and craft beer . We have a vibrant cycling community here, and our weekly rides routinely end at a local craft brewery where we swap stories about the ride. But if you think we retreat to our couches when the snowﬂakes start to fall, you’d be very much mistaken. In fact, when the temperatures drop, the adventures into the woods take on a more social and leisurely vibe. With the invention of the fat bike, we get to extend our riding (and beer drinking) seasons right through the winter months.
