    Beach/Sand riding picture thread.

    It doesn`t snow very often where I live in the UK........

    BUT , being on a Peninsula means beach on three sides !

    That`s why I love my Pug.

    Recent beach ride on the Duddon Estuary , Enjoy!

    Cheers,
    Dr FG

    Hi CK,
    I was hoping you would contribute, Thanks !

    Glad you like the pix Minitrail.
    When the tide is out the sand seems to go on forever

    All sand/ beach pix welcome in this thread.

    Cheers,
    Dr FG.

    After reading this this morning I had to give the beach a shot. I don't have the sand you folks have but we make up for it in rocks and moonscape. Thanks for the inspiration!

    It's Lake Ontario and the bluffs themselves are off limits for a good reason. Not real stable. The ride was like a long rock garden with waves, fallen trees and I was being chased by the waves the whole way. Not a wide path to ride but I did start to get an eye for what could be good to ride on. The looks on peoples faces and the comments are classic.

    In your image with the orange lifesaver is that a canal or spillway cut through solid rock?

    We really should have a fat tracks thread. It's funny how we all take pictures of our tracks. Never did that before I went fat.

    Alaska Beach Riding

    Posted somewhere else on the forum - but here again: Cook Inlet beach riding/camping with the fat bike - 28 foot tides require some planning - or a miserable few hours clining to a muddy, collapsing bluff.

    I stayed on Holy Island a few years ago when we were travelling from Newcastle to Edinburgh.
    A really magical place, best appreciated when the tide is in and the causeway is closed.
    It is so peaceful then
    It would also be good to see the great castles of Bambrugh from the beach.
    If you do this ride lots of pix please !

    Barrnem, sorry the pix take so long to load, hopefully worth the wait though.

    Anyone spot the Faux endomorph trax in the upright `Pug on the beach` shot ?
    I would love to say it was intentional, but it was just luck.

    Cheers,
    Dr FG

    Abolutely breathtaking pictures, Dr Feelygood! I'm spellbound by the sunsets, the far-off hills and the slight melancholy of it all...

    Thanks Orkge.

    I took loads of pix that evening. Had to try and `capture` the moment as best I could.
    It was a very beautiful memorable ride.
