Fore some, riding a bike is a lifestyle. But if you live in a subarctic climate, how does one maintain a lifestyle mainly adapted to the summer season? Hitch a ride with Olov, a Fat Bike enthusiast making tracks on the frozen sea.
I am a cyclist. I ride my bike every day for commuting, work-out, fun or just for the adventure. Living without biking is no life for me. But living in Swedish Lapland, just a couple of miles south of the Arctic Circle, complicate things. Sure, it’s possible to ride during winter. It’s just not the same thing as gnarly single-track during bright, warm summer days on your trustful two-wheeled steed.
