DNR warns "fat bikes" not compatible on many snowmobile trails

WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - The new "fat bikes" were a hit at this month's Badger State Winter Games around Wausau -- but they're not compatible on many snowmobile trails.

The state DNR is warning riders that the mountain bikes with wide, low pressure tires may not be allowed on the same trails as the much faster snowmobiles -- and if they are allowed, riders should be extremely careful.

The DNR says fat bikes can be used on state trails which allow bicycling at other times of the year -- but not on trails with cross country skiing.

State officials says cyclists should check the regulations of their favorite trails before venturing out. That's because the snowmobile trail system runs through a variety of public and private lands with different rules.
