    Looks like my fat-biking season is coming to an end. Yesterday and a week ago.

    True. Some other bikes want to be ridden too, though. If I had to limit myself to one bike, the fat-bike would be the one

    That bike looks even better with some snow and dirt on it. Some nice terrain for it, too.

    Here are 3 pics and a video I made from some footage of riding around Pt Reyes National Seashore in Northern CA. I am not certain this was legal as there was a sign that said biking in designated areas only. I scouted out a trail and it had a no biking sign, so I stayed away from that particular trail and headed to the beach/shore via the Limantour trail. I tried to maintain minimum impact to the area.

    ...but yes it looks like you were riding in a closed area. (sorry to be the buzz-kill!) Be sure to check the maps http://www.nps.gov/pore/planyourvisi...d/map_park.pdf before you go again; red dashed lines = bikes OK, black dashed lines = no bikes. Tan areas = bikes OK; green areas (wilderness classification) = no bikes.

    It's not uncommon for "no bikes" signs to go missing from trails around here but that excuse doesn't always work in court! (if trying to fight a citation)

    Another rule-of-thumb for California beaches is if you're below the mean high tide line you might be OK; otherwise probably not. Only a very few areas you can ride beach dunes unimpeded; especially if they're vegetated (nesting habitat for all sorts of critters)

    Nice! Point Reyes would be a great place to ride. Perhaps I should drive up there with my fatbike someday and scope it out.

    Yes. No snow anywhere until you pull up to the entrance.

    I doubt it was legal, being a National Park. I found out the hard way here in Michigan last November at Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore. Funny thing was, a ranger allowed me to ride it a year earlier in a different spot. Gomez was in the area a few days before me, found out it was NOT legal to ride. He e-mailed me, but I didn't take my computer with me that weekend. An experienced ranger gave me a written warning as there were no signs posted about bike access, but "No Wheeled Vehicles" was. He wrote me up with no fine for violating federal vehicle code 36. A bicycle is considered a wheeled vehicle in National Parks. Ask the Park if you want to know for sure. If you get caught, and it is illegal, don't argue. If you piss off the park ranger you are looking at fines or even having your bike impounded. They typically will not take your bike here in Michigan unless it's a second offense. I have to be on my best behavior in National Parks for a year, as my name, pic of my bike, and vehicle license plate# are on file. Keep in mind the guy that wrote me up was a 39 year veteran who has even arrested cyclists for drunk driving on their bikes. The previous guy was young and inexperienced and probably did not understand the vehicle codes. Riding the waterline doesn't work either, leaving tire tracks is what they have an issue with. The only way you can take a bike through a beach in a park considered a preserve is on your shoulder. Pushing a bike through the sand will also get you, as you are leaving tracks. Most preserves do NOT like posting signs, so be aware if you point out the lack of signage, it may reduce your punishment, but chances are you will still get a writeup. Hope I'm wrong about your beach in CA, but be aware the rules are never well posted.

    Stans sprayed everywhere!!

    I was riding through the desert with out my light on when I came up to a wash about 2 feet deep and 3 or 4 wide. I brought up the front end and wheelied over the wash but my front tire came down hard on a bush just on the other side. PPPSSHHHHHHHHssssss SPRAY! SPRAY! SPRAY! Went flat after like 50 feet or so. A stick went right through the tire and tube. I was like FUUUUUUUUUU@@@@@@@!!! I have a tiny little pump that takes about 1000 strokes to fill up a fat tire. I poped in another tube for the ride home without booting the tire, so today I will probably demount and patch the tire on the inside with a large regular tire patch. I dont like boots because I dont think they let the tire stretch.
