    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.

    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.

    made a coastride film the other evening,its not on the soft sand as was on my new built karate monkey which iam loving,did a 45 mile loop up into my local hills on sunday,it really flys anyway the trail above the cliffs in the film is the first trail i ever rode on my 1st mtb-a raliegh maverick se way back in 1987 when i was 16 and was cycling it home having just swapped a raliegh team replica racer for it,it was one of only 2 mtbs at high school,the other was a muddy fox,my friend had a dawes ranger even earlier in 85/86 and won a xmas timetrial on it so was maybe the first mtb competition winner in scotland!,though he went on to be scottish time trial champion sevaral times(12hour)funny that 22 years later im again riding steel fully ridgid bikes after lots of fancy suspension cannondales etc.. that cost a fortune back in the day(£2000 in 1997 for a v-brake headshock super v),i say keep bicycles simple and keep them for years and years and have lots of fun and memorys on them http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YqE7-...aynext_from=QL

    cool baja pics vik
    just like isle of harris in scotland add cacti and about 40 degrees
    i was just saying about riding in saltwater/beach sand and what ive done to improve lifespan of the pug and parts on another thread (fenders)
    i saw surfers and a couple of kite buggys today on the beach,thinking about the time they take to dress,walk to beach stand about posing a bit then finally paddling out (if conditions are right) to get a 20 second surf i think riding bikes and here on the beach with a pugsley is more miles per smiles ,im buying a ocean seayak soon(a sit on short kayak) for playing around on so just gonna have to make a pug trailer to take it down to the beach on

    heres the sort of exposure my pug gets alot,its still easier to clean than red clay mud
    once again going on the pugsley where nobody will have (successfully) cycled before
