    Nice video. You found alot of junk in the sand on that ride. Great change from the "my aluminum bike is better than yours" threads as of late.

    Hey CK those are shot near the shores I ride!
    Those clips gave me the itch to get a fat bike myself. Great stuff!

    Yeah thats the problem with finding good stretches of beach to ride here. The shoreline is just to popular. The area at the bluffs is a state park so I don't ruffle any beach owner's feathers. Further west where I rode this past weekend is all summer cottages. Empty for now so I gave myself permission... ( shhh )

    fat-biking at the Oregon Dunes

    Finally got my editing,exporting,etc. issues worked out so heres my first attempt at puttin' a movie up. Hope everything works. This was my 3rd & last day at the dunes last summer. I'm putting it up first because theres some great late afternoon light. In the open dunes I'm running just under 4psi Ft. and just under 5psi Rr. ( little more out on the beach) I'll put more up as I get them edited. Cheers!

    i'm pretty amazed by how well the endos float on the sand in the dunes and how little sideways washing out you get in turns. Very cool!

    Thanks CK. As you guys that ride sand & snow could guess, I spent plenty of time pushin' the bike too! The surface conditions really vary in big sand like that - from hard as pavement to deep powder. you really have to learn to read the stuff... and try to link the ridable "swaths" together. Actually, on the windward side of the higher ridgelines is where I found some of the best sand.So to get from point A to point B you end up zig-zaging all over the place to avoid the freshly blown in soft sand...kind of like a sail boat tacking against the wind. I've got hours (three days worth) of raw video two edit from on that trip, lots of stuff "commuting" to the dunes on the beach too. More to come!! By the way CK, there's a very "high end" golf resort just a few miles south of where I was riding in Bandon (Oregon). They bill thereselfs as the west coast equivilant to the "Ancient links of Scottland". I'll try to rustle you up a link.

    take care,
    -Ward

    P.S. here you go CK-

    thanks for the link ward,that place looks outstanding...,where i stay is a few miles from where golf all started on the east side of edinburgh at lieth links..,saint andrews on the north side of the forth estuary takes the name as the home of golf because of the rules being drawen up there and the rest as they say is history..i was time served at http://www.gullanegolfclub.com/ where nearby is my favourite beaches and dunes to ride...i dont play golf now but love greenkeeping still,next to running a guided beachriding tour company( a 1st) or a countryside ranger as my dad was it is the next best thing to being on the coast every day

    Beach riding tour service... sounds interesting. I wonder if the forest service would permit me for that at the oregon dunes? I'm afraid to ask, the way our forest service operates - they might panic and close the dunes to biking! I did ask them if it was legal to ride out there and nobody could tell me. I was the first they'd heard of doing such a thing.

    an idea i thought about after about a week of owning the pug ward..,but the state of everything this now with the recession (and my bank balance!) means maybe its not the right time...have left it on the back burner for now...dont think fatbikes are gonna catch on here much in the UK..,people in general here are a bit reluctant to anything new or diffrent...glad i saw the light...
    but hey i dont mind,i have my own deserted coastline to go ride........unless i head southwest and bump into the doc...

    It's just a little Canon SD1000 point and shoot. It has pretty limited video capabilities. I would not buy one for that purpose.

    This is my 1st ride on my dune trip last summer. Woke up to a "blue-bird" day that the weatherman didn't predict so I took advantage of it. I wanted to record the ride, the route & the scenery but I didn't want to mess with the camera gear all the time so I mounted it on the boom, kept fresh batterys & cards in and let it run. Might get redundant for some...lots & lots of sand, but for those that our interested in the route & the terrain, I finished out the loop. I'm working on ride # 2 ( #3 highlights are posted above) which was a rainy day until late afternoon when the clouds peeled back. it's a shorter ride but with real cool late afternoon light!! Trying to get some partners together for next summer - love to have some other riders to film! Could put a cam on someone in the front pointing backwards too.
