    A day at the beach, Kodiak Alaska style.

    It was sunny and cold in town, so we headed out to an eastern cape to ride but found fog and low clouds when we got there. Oh well. You can see the sun shining inland:



    The beach is mostly backed by low bluffs and meadows, but rocky outcrops make it narrower in places:



    Barny stops to watch the surge:







    There are a lot of these guys to negotiate on the beach:



    They mostly get out of the way:

    The sand is slate-colored, because it comes from... wait for it.... slate! So yeah, sort of a dark gray. We do have a few white sand beaches of Katmai ash, but mostly the sand and rock are dark.

    I've chased buffalo for miles down trails when they refuse to step off the trail and let me by. They just keep running ahead of me seemingly for ever.

    Wow! Great shots. Looks like there's some fun exploring to be had. Do you have to ride the low tides or is there beach access all day? Cool seeing the bison too.

    A good long stretch of the beach is rideable at any stage of the tide, but firmer and faster sand gets exposed once the tide goes out a ways. The stuff high on the beach is very soft and not a lot of fun to churn through. If it freezes, then things are looking better, though the constant buffalo traffic tends to chop it up. There are a few capes and outcrops to ride around and some only require a medium height tide to round, though some require a minus tide. It's no problem just going up and over the bluff blocking beach passage though. Lots of buffalo trails.

    If we get some nice hard snow down low, this would be an amazing area to snowbike. The valley that comes down to the coast where we turned around is incredibly beautiful and riding up that would be an absolute hoot.

    I have some hundie rims I intend to build up soonish. That should open a few more doors.

    Snow on the Beach!!

    It's snows in The Hague.
    More than 10cm

    Thatís unique as we have the "warm" North sea next door.
    So more unique is snow on the beach!!

    Sorry, No bisons or British WW2 mini subs on this beach but a big snowman

    It's Lake Ontario and the bluffs themselves are off limits for a good reason. Not real stable.
    About 20 miles due north of you is some of the best fresh water sand available. Check out Sandbanks Beach Provincial Park in Prince Edward County. I used to take a 12' aluminum boat with a 5hp motor from there to Rochester in about an hour.

    I grew up there but have since moved to the Wet Coast (not a spelling mistake). I don't ride a fat bike but I'm thinking about it. I have more beach here than anywhere else I've ever been. All flat rock solid sand.

    All the shore in Prince Edward County that isn't sand is limestone ledges & is perfect for trials. I never rode the sand but I used to ride trials on the ledges in the 60's on my old CCM.

    No, CCM (Canadian Cycle & Motor) bicycles. Could be the same company? I know they made motorbikes for WWII. I think all they make now is hockey equipment.

    I've been riding bicycles off road since way before there were "mountain bikes". We rode what we had. In the 60's, bicycles were pretty tough machines. In my old stomping grounds, paved roads were just coming into vogue.

    The CCM Mustang (it's a chopper) we used for BMX style riding.

    We had an old fellow who made purpose built off road bikes. Oversized frames and big balloon whitewall tires like the cruisers now. He'd add gussets and build springer forks. This was in the late 50's and early 60's. I wish I could find an old Henley Bicycle just to show to the "Gary Fisher is God" club.
