    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

    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

    Cruising Auckland's Beaches

    My photography pales in this company but here are a few pics of winter riding in Auckland's inner harbour, the Waitemata. I haven't got out much this past month as it hasn't stopped raining.

    It's actually a sunrise. I entered a 50km race on two islands (joined by a bridge) in the middle of the Hauraki Gulf called The DUAL. It was a long day starting with an early morning ferry to get there, but lots of fun and a bit of a novelty to be riding on Rangitoto. This is a Volcano anyone visiting Auckland can't miss as it's in the middle of the harbour not far from downtown. You can see it behind the flags in the bottom picture.

    Mine has some of your countries finest in it. It doesn't get too cold in Auckland but you need a wee dram to warm you up when fixing flats in shorts ;^)

    Heh ! So THAT'S what a sunrise looks like

    Must admit to being more of a sun set kind of guy due to a chronic allergy to early mornings !

    Riding a Volcano is not a common experience here in the UK so I can fully appreciate the novelty factor

    Here's another sunset for you,
    Cheers,
    Dr FG.

    buckeye to quartsute

    Cant compete with coastkids pictures, but here are a few pictures from a trip i did last spring from Buckeye, AZ to Quartsite, AZ. the trip took 3 days and 2 nights. 125 miles in total, only half were on trails. I was self contained, but did drop some water for myself about half way before i left, good thing, there is NO water out there.

    Viva Pugsley!

    Man Jimfab, that DOES look very dry !

    I like my sand wet (which is not a prob in the UK)

    Perfect Fatbike country though but too hot for me I think.

    My, what strangley coloured sand you have in the main(E) !

    Must be alot of chlorine in your sea because I would swear it looks white

    Seems to be alot of other traffic on your beaches judging by the tread marks as well.

    seriously though, good pix and lets start a Snow/ Winter riding thread

    Great pix Mahatma

    Really like the one comming out of the sea with the water still clinging to the rear tyre

    Looks like you`ve experienced the Endomorph `bow wave ` in person

    The way that tyre cuts a channel in the water is something else.

    went a local beechride early this morning,about 30 miles round trip, 6 miles to and from the beach,i rode out to the wrecks of the WW2 Xclass midget submarines,these were tied out in the bay before the end of the war and were used for target pratice by spitfire and hurricane pilots from RAF drem nearby,we used to find loads of spent bullets shells out here when we were kids,a kind of lagoon has growen vegitation over where we found them nowadays,

    Cool Pix as always

    I went for a ride this AM and got lost !

    Luckily `found myself` again and just ended up going alot further than I planned.

    Terrain included sand/rocks/gravel/fields/road/traks.... well you get the idea.

    The Pug just does it ALL so well

    Hey Bearbait, thanks for you excellent contribution

    I must admit, I love the look of Alaska beaches

    The hand,paw & endo print is a classic shot.

    The pack raft looks ideal for the Cook Inlets tides. Did you paddle to Seldovia too?

    ha! ideal? are you kidding me!
    Dylan and Bjorn Olsen went from Homer to Seldovia earlier this summer with pugsleys and packrafts, I missed that one. I think it was 4 days, good riding and lots of ocean.

    I'll finish the lost coast video eventually, the footage is too good not to.
