Some hints for Fat biking:  Get a good light in case you get stuck in the dark, the days are getting a little longer now which should help.  Fat bike tires perform really well at low tire pressures so get a digital or analog gauge with a scale from 15 to 30 PSI.  And keep your hands warm with good winter gloves or get hand warmers or over mitts. Wear wool instead of cotton because it keeps you warm even when wet. Buy some Wolfvhammer or Fasterkatt biking boots from 49 North,  or Specialized Defroster Trail boots, or Diadora Polorex Plus boots to keep your feet warm and toasty.  Get off of the bike and walk around to get the circulation going if your toes are getting too cold in one position on the bike.
