Fat Bike Rental

Framed Wolftrax RedWe have two Framed Wolftrax and two Trek Farley fat bikes available for rental.  The bike sizes are 15″ and 19″ which will accommodate most people 5′ to 6′ tall.

Rental rate:  $40/day

Please call ahead or e-mail jon@thecrazyloon.com if you want to reserve one so we can be sure to have to have it set up and ready to go since we don’t always have a bike mechanic on duty (especially in the winter).

Rental fat bikes are for trail use only.  We ask that you do not ride on roads that have been cleared and salted.

Where are good places to ride?

Phillips School Forest:  The ski trails here are off limits, but the snowshoe trails are available for biking.  These trails are typically well packed by snowshoers, and those that don’t get snowshoe use are groomed with our fat bike trail groomer.   The short and steep hills on these trails are a fun challenge on a fat bike, when snow conditions are good every trail is 100% rideable, if you new to this or snow conditions are poor count on a little walking up some of the hills.   We update the condition of the trails on a weekly basis all winter here:  http://www.pricecountywi.net/843/Reports—Trail-and-Recreation

Tuscobia State Trail in Park Falls (host of the Tuscibia Winter Ultra):  This trail allows fat bikes and snowmobiles so use caution.  Weekdays on this trail would be much quieter than weekends.

Wintergreen Ski Trails near Fifield:  Fat Bikes are allowed on these ski trails, just be courteous and stay off the tracks set for classic skiing.

Newman Springs Ski Trail:  near Park Falls:  Fat Bikes are allowed on the ski trails, just be courteous and stay of the tracks set for classic skiing.

Any gravel road in the Chequamegon National Forest:  These roads are lightly trafficked and plowed but not salted.  A much easier and laid back alternative to snowshoe and ski trails.

If you are willing to drive a bit,  you may want to check these trails out:

C.A.M.B.A. Fat Bike Trails:  The Chequamegon Area Mountain bike Association has been grooming over 45 miles of trails, definitely worth taking a drive over there!

WinMan Trails near Manotwish Waters:  Quickly getting a reputation as the best mountain bike trails in the state, they also groom some of them for winter fat biking.

Underdown Recreation Area near Merrill:  Snowshoe groomed fat bike trails.

Rhinelander Enterprise Trail System:  Machine groomed fat bike trails.
