    Cruising Auckland's Beaches

    My photography pales in this company but here are a few pics of winter riding in Auckland's inner harbour, the Waitemata. I haven't got out much this past month as it hasn't stopped raining.

    It's actually a sunrise. I entered a 50km race on two islands (joined by a bridge) in the middle of the Hauraki Gulf called The DUAL. It was a long day starting with an early morning ferry to get there, but lots of fun and a bit of a novelty to be riding on Rangitoto. This is a Volcano anyone visiting Auckland can't miss as it's in the middle of the harbour not far from downtown. You can see it behind the flags in the bottom picture.

    Mine has some of your countries finest in it. It doesn't get too cold in Auckland but you need a wee dram to warm you up when fixing flats in shorts ;^)

    Heh ! So THAT'S what a sunrise looks like

    Must admit to being more of a sun set kind of guy due to a chronic allergy to early mornings !

    Riding a Volcano is not a common experience here in the UK so I can fully appreciate the novelty factor

    Here's another sunset for you,
    Cheers,
    Dr FG.

    buckeye to quartsute

    Cant compete with coastkids pictures, but here are a few pictures from a trip i did last spring from Buckeye, AZ to Quartsite, AZ. the trip took 3 days and 2 nights. 125 miles in total, only half were on trails. I was self contained, but did drop some water for myself about half way before i left, good thing, there is NO water out there.

    Viva Pugsley!

    Man Jimfab, that DOES look very dry !

    I like my sand wet (which is not a prob in the UK)

    Perfect Fatbike country though but too hot for me I think.

    went on a dawn beachride today,got up at 3am
    drove 40 miles down to berwick upon tweed on the scottish/english border and rode along the coast and out around holy island (lindisfarne),a historic island normally accessable via a tidal causway- but theres a more fun way to get out there
    sunrise was 4am,low tide 6am,i will be making a film too which i can now post on the fatbike film thread

    My, what strangley coloured sand you have in the main(E) !

    Must be alot of chlorine in your sea because I would swear it looks white

    Seems to be alot of other traffic on your beaches judging by the tread marks as well.

    seriously though, good pix and lets start a Snow/ Winter riding thread

    Cheers,

    Great pix Mahatma

    Really like the one comming out of the sea with the water still clinging to the rear tyre

    Looks like you`ve experienced the Endomorph `bow wave ` in person

    The way that tyre cuts a channel in the water is something else.

    went a local beechride early this morning,about 30 miles round trip, 6 miles to and from the beach,i rode out to the wrecks of the WW2 Xclass midget submarines,these were tied out in the bay before the end of the war and were used for target pratice by spitfire and hurricane pilots from RAF drem nearby,we used to find loads of spent bullets shells out here when we were kids,a kind of lagoon has growen vegitation over where we found them nowadays,

    Luckily `found myself` again and just ended up going alot further than I planned.

    Terrain included sand/rocks/gravel/fields/road/traks.... well you get the idea.

    The Pug just does it ALL so well

    Hey Bearbait, thanks for you excellent contribution

    I must admit, I love the look of Alaska beaches

    The hand,paw & endo print is a classic shot.

    The pack raft looks ideal for the Cook Inlets tides. Did you paddle to Seldovia too?

    ha! ideal? are you kidding me!
    Dylan and Bjorn Olsen went from Homer to Seldovia earlier this summer with pugsleys and packrafts, I missed that one. I think it was 4 days, good riding and lots of ocean.

    I'll finish the lost coast video eventually, the footage is too good not to.
