Get a fat bike.
Most practicial tip we can give anyone on Long Island this winter is to get a fat bike. We have excellent beaches, trails and the occasional snow to keep you moving through all seasons and a fat bike offers versatility as well as some great group activities.
Quite a few groups are fattening up on Long Island.Check out the Long Island Area MountainBikers (LIAM). They are organizing quite a few rides, a mix of clubs / non-clubs / various levels for beach rides. Upcoming: Sunday 2/18 Caumsett 10:30am. Saturday Long Beach 2/24 12 noon. Saturday 3/17 St. Patrick's Fire Island (time TBD). Details on each ride will be posted prior via their Facebook Page.
