Bike across bay

Bikers hit the ice during 2016’s Bike Across the Bay in Bayfield County. Starting at noon this year, the Feb. 16 fat-tire bike race will follow the remnants of the previous evening’s Book Across the Bay course.

When Bike Across the Bay rolls around in the middle of February, bike-riding enthusiast Nate Swiston plans to don cross-country ski gear, plus helmet, facemask and goggles, to traverse ice- and snow-covered Lake Superior on his fat-tire bicycle in racing mode.

“Anytime we can race a fat bike locally on the lake, that is unique in itself,” Swiston said.
