Biking in the winter? It sounds odd, but here in Minnesota, it’s a popular winter activity! There is no reason you’ll need to put your spokes away for the winter; just grab a fat tire bike and you’re ready for an adventure around Two Harbors, MN. After a long day of exploring the North Shore, enjoy the cozy suites at Superior Shores Resort, the perfect home base for every family and budget this winter.
What is a fat tire bike? Any bike that has a 3.5” width tires for riding. These types of mountain bikes allow for smoother riding in the winter months where snow covers the terrain. As we’ve adapted to the weather over the years, our love for the outdoors hasn’t changed. Fat tire biking came to be after avid cyclists improved the bike frames and studded tires. The cycling industry has gladly welcomed this new change, and here in Two Harbors, we have plenty of trails for you to enjoy the fat tire bike experience. Don’t have a fat tire bike? No worries – head on over to one of our favorite local shops, Spokengear, a haven for cyclists, and outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds. Here you’ll want to grab some coffee, a brew, chat with the staff, learn about the trails, and then get to riding.
Speaking of brews, a perfect end to your biking day along the North Shore is a stop at Castle Danger Brewing Company! Known for their tasty craft brews, you won’t go wrong taking in the Two Harbors craft beer scene. Beers and bikes, an unlikely combination, but one that avid adventurers appreciate.

It seems to us that it is time to grab your helmet and book your Superior Shores getaway this winter before the snow melts and makes way for spring. We’re looking forward to seeing you on the trails and relaxing with friends and family at Castle Danger or our very own Kamloops Lounge. See you soon!
