    I think I could give up snow-riding for beach riding. I must make life plans accordingly.

    Fantastic! I love these posts for the vicarious travel experience. Coastkid lives in a different world than mine (sand, red clay and pine trees galore).

    Speaking of vicarious travel experience. Check out this state park in Brazil, LENÇOIS MARANHENSES. Miles upon miles of sand dune strips interlaced with fingerlike "ponds". Just look at the images google brings up, you'll get the idea. Its like the Sahara, if the Sahara were half water. Decent size too (by lower 48 standards), 44 miles end to end and maybe half as wide.

    I read about it in Nat'l Geographic and all I could think was OMG I must bring my fatbike there. Probably never get there, but maybe one of you guys will and can snap some good pics

    I'm beginning to think you should change your name from coastkid to rustybike

    Obviously you're on top of the dreaded iron worm. Your maintenance schedule would be instructive - I avoid salt water like the plague.

    Definitely a good idea, there's already a lot of info already floating around in various threads, but it would nice to have it all in one place.

    A long beach ride looks like be fun.

    Anyone know where this is possible in the UK? (Calling Coastkid to the forum)

    I suppose Google Earth is also the answer

    Ha! wish I'd thought of doing that!

    Lowest tides expose all sorts of stuff - I reckon I can smell that harbour from your photos.

    Awesome, I took advantage of the other benefit of that moon. Night ride. Could wander around without the light on, didn't try any singletrack by moonlight though. I have ridden singletrack by moonlight, but only in the snow, no more of that around here anymore, thank god.

    hey beach riders...how long are your typical rides?
    I'm planning on going to the beach soon and was thinking on riding the whole South Padre Island coast south to north..fooling around in the dunes a bit and then going back to the hotel...probably some 20 mi total....is that too much?

    *I also need to know how to put my pugsley on my car in a way the Wife doesn't notice it

    Looks like it may be BUSY !!!

    Especially if you go at Spring Break :- http://springbreak.sopadre.com/2011/help/

    Looks like great beaches, but ?? very hot, so I would see how you do as riding on very softy sand is a leg killer !

    Looking forward to the PIX

    Fylde Coast/Morecombe Bay area John, specifically rode from Pilling to Lancaster, trying to get as much beach as possible, aiming to work my way up to Arnside and then cross the bay !

    although I don't think this is realistic :-0

    Hey Steve,
    best way to cross is via the TRAIN from Arnside to Grange Over Sands.....

    The Tidal Bore at Arnside is notoriously FAST and Dangerous !

    There is a Sand Guide for Morecambe Bay :- http://www.morecambe.co.uk/walk.html

    Steve,

    I`m a bit further round at Barrow-in-Furness .

    http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=barr...N&hl=en&tab=wl

    I do know the Arnside/Grange/Flookborough areas to an extent, but not (yet) from a beach riding point of view.

    My main stamping ground is Walney Island and the Duddon Estuary around Roanhead and up past Askam-in-Furness.

    John, what and where do you have in mind ? Could be interested

    Cheers,
    Dr FG

    As little bike as possible, as silent as possible.

    I'm off for 11 days from next Thursday, so what about something on or between the bank holidays?

    Meeting up around Morecambe or the South Lakes, I'm happy to travel, aim for a low tide morning ride.

    What about the morning of the royal wedding while the wife's glued to the box it's a free day for the riders out there with no interest in the big day but a free day's holiday to use?

    I just did a recognition trip to Padre Island...beach and dunes "seemed" like heaven to ride!....seemed?....I went bikeless!! ... It was a wife time trip....she is leaving tomorrow for a family visit trip...I even had her permission but actually I preferred to leave the bike at home...I would have been able to ride for a while this morning but it was going to be a very quick ride... and I didn't want that...beach has a good firm area and I could even stand with one foot on the dunes and there was no sand-sucking from it I stopped a..."beach guard"?...and ask if I could bring my bike to ride the beach...he asked back: "Does it have motor?"...hehe...motor-less bikes are good to go!....soon guys...soon!

    sorry CK, I'm at the office and have to do it at home later tonight... I must say though... do not expect something great or even close to the scenic pics you show us during your rides... I don't know if I had my expectations too high or just wasn't lucky... but all in all my ride just wasn't the best of the rides
    The sand & bike on sand experience was great, I can't complain about that, is just that, counting this is my first beach-fat bike experience and all, in terms of relaxing and beach enjoyment on a bike, I think SPI won't make a top 50 list... (at least not the 20 miles I rode)

    The ride started early, around 7:30 am...
    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/46858934@N02/5728063103/" title="DSC_0001 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5026/5728063103_f75e70ee57_z.jpg" width="640" height="426" alt="DSC_0001"></a>

    The night before I did a short pressure test on the sand close to the little cabana, so I had some things already done.

    The day was very cloudy and very windy too… I started almost at the very south point of SPI going north and the wind was against me…. this wasn’t really bothering me, but it drained a lot energy.

    The beach in front of the buildings has a sort of 3 lanes to ride…the hard and wet sand you could find close to the water… a semi-packed sand were you could see some cars had pass…and a very nice and loose but full of seashells sand.

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/46858934@N02/5728063419/" title="DSC_0006 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5216/5728063419_24aebd623d_z.jpg" width="640" height="426" alt="DSC_0006"></a>

    I started in the middle sand and it felt really great… I was able to, finally, fell the flotation on a really fat bike terrain. It was awesome.

    About the first 7 mi were in front of the buildings so I wanted to do those fast, looking for a more scenic beach, so I pumped some air and went for the sand close to the water.

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/46858934@N02/5728615500/" title="DSC_0010 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5082/5728615500_7f9cb7dc87_z.jpg" width="640" height="426" alt="DSC_0010"></a>

    And finally the last two buildings….

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/46858934@N02/5728614650/" title="DSC_0024 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5025/5728614650_2d03211cec_z.jpg" width="640" height="426" alt="DSC_0024"></a>

    I was hoping for the best but.... this is what I found:

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/46858934@N02/5728066213/" title="DSC_0027 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2466/5728066213_89e56a1030_z.jpg" width="640" height="426" alt="DSC_0027"></a>

    And it never stopped.

    I had nothing to do but keep riding...

    Around 10:30 the sun showed up

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/46858934@N02/5728615202/" title="100_0015 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3242/5728615202_9b4eb27464_z.jpg" width="640" height="360" alt="100_0015"></a>

    A Portuguese Man o' War in the way…

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/46858934@N02/5728616506/" title="DSC_0028 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3233/5728616506_4c24cd8bdb_z.jpg" width="640" height="426" alt="DSC_0028"></a>

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/46858934@N02/5728067055/" title="DSC_0031 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3517/5728067055_dbe3275acb_z.jpg" width="640" height="426" alt="DSC_0031"></a>

    I asked at two of the beach access if I could go over the dunes and they just didn’t know… so I won’t lie…I tried some!

    But first…I found a nice lane (just for a while)…between the dunes and the seashell sand…

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/46858934@N02/5728062837/" title="DSC_0032 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5304/5728062837_dfc3e9a0ac_z.jpg" width="425" height="640" alt="DSC_0032"></a>

    The dunes are not so wide and you can’t actually ride a continuous line over it so you would need to get out and in to ride some…. I wasn’t able to find a proper pressure to not sink in those conditions… at some point with some speed I would not…but that wasn’t easy to do not having a good straight path…that, and not knowing if I could actually be there, kept me out of the Dunes.

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/46858934@N02/5728066483/" title="DSC_0039 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3074/5728066483_34633c6102_z.jpg" width="640" height="426" alt="DSC_0039"></a>

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/46858934@N02/5728136025/" title="100_0023 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5214/5728136025_006d79d16a_z.jpg" width="640" height="360" alt="100_0023"></a>

    Then I rode a while on the middle sand until I felt the wind was starting to lose its strength…the first I thought was that it was going to change and I was going to have headwind again… So I rest for a little while, had my brunch…it was 12:15 already…and then went back.

    My rest stop and view…

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/46858934@N02/5728614900/" title="DSC_0045 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5304/5728614900_104f88694c_z.jpg" width="640" height="426" alt="DSC_0045"></a>

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/46858934@N02/5724917838/" title="South Padre Island by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5139/5724917838_054ae0a18a_z.jpg" width="640" height="426" alt="South Padre Island"></a>

    And my first view going back

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/46858934@N02/5728617358/" title="DSC_0048 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5264/5728617358_baa634111f_z.jpg" width="640" height="426" alt="DSC_0048"></a>

    I did some filming, but nothing close to what I had in my head.

    I also found a real officer on my way back and asked... you can't go over the dunes!

    Must be frustrating having all those people down there.

    You need to start a Jaws rumour.

    Looks like a good ride anyway.

    ^^ yep, the sand/bike experience was great and I definitely will try it again sometime, but that much people wasn't what I was expecting...I can't imagine how more crowded this beaches get during the spring break weeks.

    On my way back, when it was even more crowded, I was able to hear a lot of compliments and wow's about the bike. I also almost ran over a little boy, my breaking even lifted my rear wheel...for me was scary...he just keep running hehe.

    So Martin, is the Larry really a better performer in the sand with the tread reversed? I know the Endomorph works better that way. Looks like an awesome ride, cannot wait to get my fully fat build going along such that I can hit up the beaches this summer.

    Martin glad you felt the `float across sand` sensation
    you need to come to Scotland for a beachride, i never met anyone on the beaches of Harris in 4 days!

    My friend Jason and i were comparing my rear Larry (not reversed) to his rear Endomorph (not reversed) for the beach and i am getting more grip on the soft stuff,
    also when rock riding and the tyres are covered in sand his tread is more crusted with sand than my larry and it spins out...
    though i also have a bit lower low gears which helps a lot 22t/ 36t with mechs again to his 24t Alfine with a 32 up front,-
    i plan going down to a 20t granny soon! be super low then

    @LP
    Sorry Leo, can't help you there...I've only used Larrys on my LMs...I don't know about Larry vs Endo but I could predict a better performance on sand with a wider rim....after my experience I think I wouldn't go lower that 80mm on my rims for beach riding.

    hope to make it sooner than later CK, you guys really have beautiful places to ride.

    I got out to the Silver Lake Sand Dunes today, they let me ride the pedestrian section. Used dual Larry's in the normal direction. Worked fantastic. Seems to track better in the downhills too, now I understand how you are getting some good DH speed in your vids. I used about 8PSI. I was at my favorite sandy gravel pit yesterday and actually did a downhill I've never had the guts to do with an Endomorph in back.

    I rode the Indiana dunes beaches today, alot of fun. Best part was, I have never, in my life, had so many bikini girls talk to me in 1 day. LOL Everyone loved the bike. I enjoyed the views & comments & had a fun ride. Pics to come tomorrow.

    That's a major + over riding in sub-zero temperatures.

    Indiana dunes beach riding. In 2 days I biked the entire beach from Gary harbor to Michigan City power plant.
    It was fun, alot of comments from beach folks. Plenty of logs & such to practice balancing & riding along as well to make it more interesting.


    The last pic was the "endo' the beach".

    Darryl's have held up fine for all trail riding so far!
    Really like how everything came together for this bike. I haven't ridden my EX9 at all since this one was built. Would have liked a carbon fork, but since it needs the wider hub, I don't see it happening anytime soon.

    The THIRD way :)

    I live on the end of a Peninsula, and so far have only sand biked on the North and West sides.

    The South beaches front Morecambe Bay, which is really rather beautiful too.

    Saturday dawned bright and breezy, so the third way had to be done

    I went a bit mad with the camera, here are a small selection

    10 days Roadtrip around the NW to NE Scottish coastline with the pugs on the back of the car, camped out at a few beaches and often just pulled in off the road,unloaded the bike and went for a play, strong gales most of the week and sideways rain showers, but between the rain it was as always stunning as ever up there
    pre hoiliday season means empty beaches most evenings and it did not get that dark until after midnight...
    Oh that clear green Atlantic sea that looks so inviting is only about 5 degrees celcius
    loads of pics to come but here are a few...
