    Hi, coastkid71! I was very impressed by your films - http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=coastkid71 !
    Thank you!

    Hi, from Sibiria! Sorry, but all my photos might be called as "swamp riding" instead "sand/beach riding".

    Siberia is a really mad and wild country!



    Next year I am going to take part in the Trans-Baikal marathon race on fatbikes in the pair with my daughter . It will be real adventure!

    Zmey70,

    Sounds interesting, can you tell us a bit more about the race. How long, winter or summer, how many people and that sort of thing. I had a quick look o the web but it's all in Russian.... funny that Maybe you could put it in it's own thread.

    I've seen an interesting DVD about two Aussie guys who rode from Moscow to somewhere in China, an epic ride that went through some beautiful country in Russia.

    Al,

    Trans-Baikal is one of interesting events near the Lake Baikal. In 2010 Trans-Bakal will take place from July 19 to July 25. The registration will end in June 20. The length of the race will be 310 km divided by 5 stages with singletracks and gravel roads along the west Lake Baikal coast from Maloe Goloustnoe to Olkhon Island.
    http://www.waytorussia.net/Baikal/De...ns/Olkhon.html
    In 2009 30 commands (60 racers) took part in this race.
    The course of the race is suitable for fatbiking because of much sand, mud, gravel and swamps on the course though the forms of landscape are large and smooth.

    There are many interesting places for fatbiking around Irkutsk and Baikal Lake.
    For example:
    Traditional 100 km ride across the Lake Baikal in winter on fatbikes, http://pics.livejournal.com/macsimka/gallery/00016sb5 .
    Irkut river valley fatbiking, http://pics.livejournal.com/macsimka/gallery/000151hw .
    Kaya river valley fatbiking, http://pics.livejournal.com/macsimka/gallery/0001aec4 .
    Wild and amazing world of Olkhinskoe Plateau, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGvADRz9ntY .
    Fatbiking on Olkhon Island, http://pics.livejournal.com/kaer3/gallery/00007fb9 .

    If somebody has interest in the information about that I can create a special topic "Fatbiking in Siberia" or “Trans-Baikal marathon race”.

    Zmey,

    I'm interested in reading and seeing more of the Siberian cycling scene. Some of your pics look like some areas I've been here in Alaska. At what latitude are you located ?

    These are from a couple years ago. Test riding my fat bike before powder coating - my first peddle strokes! I had just finished assembling it an hour or so before these pics.

    Great Pix as always Guys

    1st ride on the beach for quite some time yesterday (reasons to be explained later !?!).

    Here are some Pix to set the mood.

    Yes those are (or were) four wheel drive cars stuck in the sand.

    The `wreck` is the Steamboat Anastasia, lost 1946. Here is a link to more info:-

    Blood Calls

    La Pugsdozer and I went to the river to check on the status after Alex (the hurricane)...

    We were impressed to see everything converted in a big riverbed (I was riding in what it was a Golf field)





    we had some fun though...we even found some sand!



    suddenly... La Pugdozer went crazy...totally out of control.





    of course!!



    she went nuts!





    specially with her blood cousin...The Bulldozer:



    she just couldn't contain herself



    She ask them to join us and play...but they were resting after a full week of labor...they ask us to see their work instead:





    * I didn't say anything but, due to their job I wasn't able to keep riding on that side of the river

    A nice ride last night

    Sun going down.......

    Moon coming up.....

    Tide coming in .......

    And a deserted beach , Bliss

    I did have a mechanical first last night, the none drive side crank arm fell off

    Bit of a surprise that, luckily not too far from civilization and with careful pedaling it stayed back on despite no crank bolt (lost in the sand somewhere!).

    Enjoy,
    Dr FG

    Advice

    Great pics and bikes every one.
    Dr Feelygood/Coastkid where did you get your bikes, wheels and tyres. I live by the coast and some great beaches (Tynemouth/Whitley Bay and the Northumberland coast).
    I would like to start a new build and have got some inspiration from all the bikes and scenery.
    Appreciate every ones advice.
    Thanks
    Skye

    Hey Skye,


    I went to lived in Newcastle for 1 year and loved the beaches around the coast.

    Used to get the metro and feed my coastal addiction at weekends

    Here are some useful threads for you :-

    Where to buy FAT in European Union

    Fat bike products in Europe?

    My bike was imported from the USA from http://www.highintensitybikeshop.com/

    but at that time £1 = nearly $2 so even with shipping and import duty it was good.

    As mentioned in the 2nd thread Billys in the UK has and can get all you need but it IS expensive.

    You can also pick up stuff on Ebay if you are lucky.

    Cheapest 100mm BB I`ve found in the UK is here :-

    after Alex, La Huasteca is a Pugs Paradise...rocks in the sizes you could imagine...a couple from today....





    I was so happy today...the ride was amazing...felt a little sorry for the guys on their skinny tires when I was riding on the river line...pretty much with my tires on the water.

    Fat bikes are indeed so much fun...I'll definitely go back tomorrow ....didn't take any footage, I need to get a tripod today!

    La Huasteca was closed this weekend...I had to find another place to ride...a friend recommend me to go to Las Adjuntas...it was nice while it last...again, another flat...haven't checked the tube to see what was the reason but I'm guessing it was my bad work on the patch...anyways...today I learned the hard way I need to bring my stuff to the rides and that I shouldn't put my need to ride over going "to ride prepared"...the hike up wasn't pleasant!

    I must go again!


    OT: currently in the market for a cheap bag able to contain a Surly tube, tools, mini-pump and perhaps some other small stuff...considering Jandd Frame Pac.

    Started today with a lovely Sunday morning beach ride.

    Tide going out,sunny and 18degrees Celsius

    As usual I got very wet and really did put the sand into my sandals.

    The beach varies so much in texture and topography.

    I really like the " Grand Canyon" in the sand.

    Fatbikes rule, but even they have limits.

    Crossing an innocuous looking riverlet, I found myself stopped VERY suddenly and the Pug sinking in rapidly !!!

    Needless to say I bailed ASAP. Sinking stopped so I got a Pic or two and then carefully extracted my bike

    Back on the Beach...

    After alot of other riding and then a week ill with the cold its time to hit the beach
    been itching to try the F&R Larrys on sand and have to say there ace,
    the 6 mile road ride each way was easy, squirmy steering free and gone is that rear tyre bobbing when pushing hard on the pedals,must be the 120 TPI sidewalls...
    apart from a trailer i reckon its Larrys all round for all types of riding
    surly have done a top job on these tyres,im sure there rolling better on tarmac despite being louder-which i love
    anyway a wee ride around Yellowcraig park early today...nice and cold breeze kept away all bar a few dog walkers...some pics...more on Da blog...





















    plan it...build it....ride it...love it....

    Autumn beach ride

    Dark clouds, rain and wind, typical Dutch autumn weather.
    And perfect weather to test my new Ortliep Rack-pack. I put this waterproof bag, size small, with the two Compression straps direct on the handlebar.
    And it works!!

    Okay, it needs some small adjustments but the first test went very well.

    I recently put the fat back and shifter back on for the winter. Took a ride out on the sandspit on a whim.

    I'll have to make a more complete and artistic record of the ride at some point (perhaps try making a movie), but here's some of what I snapped as I went.







    New island. This was all beach when I was here last year. A spring Nor 'Easter made a wash-through into a wash out. Maybe I need a packraft.

    Where did this thread go? Too much snow flying methinks.

    Here's some pics from a ride from a few weeks back when we were in between snowstorms. Sandy Neck on Cape Cod. A fantastic place to ride a fatbike, but watch out for the tide and seasonal trail closures (due to seabird nesting).

    This one goes out to TSCheezy, its no whale, but its the largest sea carcass we've run into so far.

    icecreamjay,
    Great pictures of the cape. I grew up in Bourne and now live in Attleboro. I've got to get down there to Sandy Neck. I have a lot of memories from there.

    Yep, great pics CK, looks like you have some major tides over there. In the 4th and 5th pics it looks like the tidal flats just go on forever.

    This has been a wonderful thread! Never seen a fatbike in person but they look like a blast to ride. The varied scenery in many of these shots is beautiful to see.

    Scuba diving anyone?

    Right now the snow is so deep in SE Michigan, only trails packed down by snowmobiles are rideable by Fatbike. I was the only biker riding the trail today. One snowmobiler stopped to check this trailside activity out, and I stopped too to take a pic. Thought I'd share this pic here. This local trail I ride has a pond-side beach near the trail. If I'm not mistaken, there's a local scuba-diving school that uses this pond all year round to train people. Not something you expect to see on a ride, especially in winter.

    Got some free time to meet up with Rottendan yesterday and rode some of his home turf (well, more like sand) in Chatham, Massachusetts.

    Headed out on the west side of the beach, which is basically a barrier island of sorts. There was a good amount of ice still left over here.

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/33175822@N06/5444059838/" title="m1 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5215/5444059838_95a3b60d39_b.jpg" width="800" height="600" alt="m1" /></a>

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/33175822@N06/5441581841/" title="2011-02-12 012 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5174/5441581841_415987d346_z.jpg" width="480" height="640" alt="2011-02-12 012" /></a>

    A few miles down the beach you get to a couple of huge open sand flats before you reach where the beach has connected to the island.

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/33175822@N06/5442187820/" title="2011-02-12 020 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4079/5442187820_7b69443d73_b.jpg" width="1024" height="768" alt="2011-02-12 020" /></a>

    Here's Dan finally having fun with a trap

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/33175822@N06/5439510955/" title="2011-02-12 025 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5131/5439510955_6a62b28605_b.jpg" width="1024" height="576" alt="2011-02-12 025" /></a>


    About 6 miles down the beach you get to Monomoy Island, I had to snap this one just for the sheer "Cape Coddiness" of it

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/33175822@N06/5440116746/" title="2011-02-12 033 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4076/5440116746_7a53505c79_b.jpg" width="1024" height="576" alt="2011-02-12 033" /></a>

    A scene from Jaws. No, we didn't huck it.

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/33175822@N06/5439512477/" title="2011-02-12 035 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5260/5439512477_33297193e9_z.jpg" width="640" height="480" alt="2011-02-12 035" /></a>

    Then some fresh tracks in the sand.

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/33175822@N06/5440118336/" title="2011-02-12 041 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5220/5440118336_80c7114b46_z.jpg" width="480" height="640" alt="2011-02-12 041" /></a>

    Then we ran into a good sized colony. All these seals draw Great Whites in the summer.

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/33175822@N06/5440119120/" title="2011-02-12 045 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5258/5440119120_e41a60a433_b.jpg" width="1024" height="768" alt="2011-02-12 045" /></a>

    We didn't want to mess with them so we turned around.


    So far we had been riding into the wind, and it had been picking up bit by bit, turning around and enjoying the tailwind was pure joy.
