    You're from Warrnambool? I passed through there last year, some really fantastic beaches and scenery along the Great Ocean Road. I've been hoping someone there would buy a Fatbike and start posting pics.

    To the dismay of the hotel owners in Portland, my wife and I tried seeing everything along the GOR in one day (Melbourne to Portland), had no idea a hotel would close around 9PM In fact, the whole town closes around then, we ended up eating dinner in a Portland gas station. Microwave food never tasted so good as that day

    I have some pics from there, but I didn't bring a bike with me.

    Thanks everyone . Thats a big trip Steve. I'm still trying to work out beach riding. I think the steeper beaches are softer and an ebbing tide might be firmer. Need to get out more. Bill P

    Hello all Been lurking on this forum for a while - since Coastkid (my near-neighbour in East Lothian, Scotland) persuaded me to get a Pugsley earlier this year. Finally I've got round to posting! Unsurprisingly, I love my Pug

    A few pics from my most recent, local beach ride:







    Cheers
    Jason

    Hi Drew

    It's an 8 speed Alfine. Would love to have fitted a Rohloff but my wallet said "no"

    Rode a lenght of coast yest with Jason that is only accessable at low tide,
    Too dangerous to do alone in the past as cut off by cliffs at High tide,
    It is about 60% ridable, with some bike carrying in places,
    Quite hard going in the 20C+ mini heatwave of this weekend

    Sweet, can't wait to get out to the Cape this fall. Do you get a lot of questions and funny looks from all the beachgoers? I found the middle school aged boys were the most impressed with the fat tires. That and I got some long strange looks from surfers. Almost like they were trying to judge if there was any way to strap a board to a fatbike.

    Lot's of funny looks. We kept a good pace on the beach so we didn't stop and talk to anyone, but you could hear the comments as we rolled through. We did get hung up with a middlle aged guy asking questions when we were coming out at Marconi.

    Hopefully we can all hook up for a ride soon.

    Coastkid and I rode across Goswick Bay (Northumberland, UK), from Berwick-upon-Tweed to Holy Island for a bivvy on the edge of the beach. Returned north via the causeway. Northumberland has some magnificent beaches, and plenty WWII defence relics there too.

    WWII Sub

    Here's my contribution to "Fatbike by WWII Submarine": Right in the middle of a large beach on Lake Michigan the USS Silversides is part of a Naval Museum. Sand was too deep to ride today but there were too many beach-goers along the shoreline to ride. Also pictured is a rescue submersible for those class of subs.

    That submarine is just a little bit less rusty that the ones we have here, Steve

    How many submariners does that rescue craft hold?

    Rescue

    Not sure, nothing in the brochure or the website. It's not very big, about 7-8 feet tall, I'd be surprised if more than six people could squeeze into that. That sub's engines still run, it was used in a movie called "Below". I also went inside, still looks in great condition inside too.

    Funny, the later nuclear-powered Silversides from the Cold War era was decommissioned by blowing it up for security reasons.

    Jason/Coastkid, Excellent pictures from a top ride. Was in the area last month, but didn't have the bike, think a return visit will be in order sometime.

    Steve - Nice wee detour on your run there! As someone who spends all his time maintaining ships/oil rigs, I would love to have a nose round that sub, look ace!

    Excellent evening ride up river, through forest & back along East beach.
    The bunkers in the pics were for heavy artillery posts

    There are 2 emplacements about 200 yards apart, together they would have covered a large sweep of the inner Moray firth. There is also a couple of smaller bunkers behind those linked with wee trenches which are in surprisingly good condition. You can just imagine waiting for the enemy fleet sailing over the horizon....

    Lake Michigan Ride

    Some shots from around Ludington-Manistee area. Thought with all of the tank barrier pics it would be cool to have a Fatbike pic along an actual tank or two

    Note: For those of you around the Great Lakes - ask before riding the beach at Ludington and be aware it can be closed off for Piping Plover nests. And - the area north of Ludington is a National Forest, no tracks allowed, even from a beach cart. You can shoulder your bike across there, sled it, pack raft, but you cannot leave a tire track there - $275 fine. The sandy road to the Ludington Lighthouse pictured below is pretty cool, good view of the dunes. The Manistee beach's shoreline is OK to ride, where I took the sunset pic.

    Doesn't look like much but this sand dune area has some fun areas to fat bike along with miles of mtn bike trails surrounding it! This hill in the back ground is loose sand and quite the challenge to make it up! People struggle to walk up it, but my buddy and I managed to pass a few of them on our bikes! Of course the best part is coming down as fast as you can! This was good practice to get ready for snow which will be on it's way soon enough!

    Gold Rush Ride

    With the price of gold creeping up on 2 grand an oz., Nome is becoming the beach mining capital of the world. On a calm fall day, the local fleet of off shore suction dredges is busy, busy, busy. A shanty town of beach miners has sprouted up on the beach west of town in the last few years. There's even a snack shack made of pallets. The burgers are pretty good, too. Word is the Discovery Channel's love affair with Alaska -- ala Ice Road Truckers, Deadliest Catch, Fyling Wild Alaska -- will showcase Nome's underwater gold rush next season.

    Homer AK to Anchor River on the beach

    I responded to Pat's call on the Alaska Forum to ride the beach from Homer to Anchor Point spend the night and then return. Five of us started out, Kathy had to head home after riding abouit half way (she met us Sunday an hour out of Homer). Mike had to head home after riding all the way. Hope the tide was still low enough. The rest of us made it tothe mouth of the river where the fisherman didn't know what we were. Some of Pat's cycling buddies met us with Hot Pizza and JT's wife brought growlers from microbreweries from Anchorage, Fairbanks and Homer. That's the way to end a wilderness ride!
    It rained a bit on the return so no pictures but the tide was lower so more time on sand and less on boulders. Also on Saturday we met a couple of guys who had Fatbiked the Ressurection trail, Hope to the Kenai River, floated to the beach at Kenai and then biked the beach to Homer. I hope they write that up somewhere. Anyway thanks to Pat for an great trip. Rest of the pics. will be in the next post. Steve

    Thanks, There are 4 big volcanos visible on that stretch of beach but the two close ones were hiding behind clouds. Augustine, in the photo is 65 miles away and about 4000' high. Iliamna and Redoubt are 10,000' and only 46 miles away. Maybe next time they'll be visible.

    San Clemente Surf Bike riding

    This is the first in a series of 4 (or so) videos in a youtube playlist. I ride from Trestles, across the nuke plant walkway, and down to San Onofre. But I picked a day/time with very little ridable sand (waves crashing on cliff walls), so I eventually cut the ride short. I will be back at a nice low tide.

    thought id make the most of this mild october weather to get out and enjoy it the best way possible.......riding the fat bike!

    destination: south lakes ulverston, canal foot, and bardsea beach.

    on saturday i popped out in the morning to see what the tide was like. a superb 17c and rising and clear skys was the ideal start to the weekend.























    got to learn lots on the way the bike handles soft sand and wet sand. great fun!

    Great Pix Salty

    I used to ride on the beach at Ulverston on 'fat' Panaracer Fire XC Pro 2.1" tyres when I lived there

    I've always fancied riding at Humphrey Head but have never got round to it .

    cheers, i have tried to explore humphrey head on two different bikes without success........the fat bike was ideal though.

    theres huge amounts of bog there, it stinks in places!

    great and very quiet though........peregrines on the cliff face are a soft spot of mine too

    The blackened area of the rocks are usually all that is above water-level when the tides in! There is an annual running race called the "Black Rock race" which runners have to make it round the rock before the tide comes back in. I didn't have to worry about that, thankfully!

    To put it into perspective spot the tiny white Pugsley in the middle of the shot!

    You'll love it, it can get a bit busy round the car park and picnic area during the summer, but venture further from there and it's really quiet. Not to mention the large expanse of beach, which I realise now I didn't take a pic of!

    I didn't realise that the National Cycle route no.76 runs through Tentsmuir Forest; I just wish I had taken a picture of the reaction I got from the four old guys on their loaded tourers as I came crashing through the undergrowth crossed their patch and headed straight for the soft-stuff!! All done with a cheery "Good morning!" of course..

    North Walney Beach Ride :)

    Sunday dawned bright, beautiful and cool.........

    Chucked to Pug into the Gutter rack and headed for North Walney.

    My Pug has undergone some recent plastic (rubber) surgery.

    The front fork is now the original rigid offset 135mm with the canti bosses removed and re-sprayed black. Racks front and rear.

    The Front wheel is a Rolling Darryl (no holes) build onto the original Surly SS rear hub and wearing a (skinny) Larry.......mind you, on this rim Larry is 98mm wide. All he needed was a bigger DOUGHNUT to fatten him up

    The rear Large Marge is now wearing a Big Fat Larry, which comes out at 99mm wide, almost perfect front and rear balance despite different rims and tyres

    Finally a Jandd frame bag, because they are very useful !

    Anyway, lots of pix for your patience.........

    As usual, I cannot resist lots of tyre track shots.

    The way they hold their line on off camber slopes is amazing, as is the way they deal with beach rocks

    the sand was VERY soft in some places ............even with a Pug

    I`m still amazed that I can ride over a shell on this bike and not break it.

    With the tyres at low pressure....... rocks just seem to disappear !

    A good day to go gliding & sand biking
