    sand for snow...

    yep even i got snow on our local hills in east lothian...s.e. scotland..




    i had 2 days last febuary but although deep it was wet and thawed quick..
    this stuff is dry on top of frozen ground and a bit diffrent to ride than sand!
    first off... now i know why you guys all go on about the new larry tyre now..i had a few moments as the front stepped out a few times on fast down hills while crossing 4x4 tracks..
    snow is a lot harder to read than sand for sure,though ive proberly got my local beaches sussed out now and know what to look for in traction in colour,texture,and looking ahead at any footprints...
    anyway full write up on blog...
    heres links to satuardays 40 mile ride;my attempt at snowbiking....
    satuarday in 3 parts...

    Very nice! Love the flask - gotta' get one of those. My Tachyon should be here in a couple days. They e-mailed me the tracking number today. Can't wait! Spending New years + a couple of days up skiing with my family. Taking the bike for sure - if the skiing's good I'll do alot of skiing and a little biking and vise - versa if the skiing is bad.

    Happy holidays
    -Ward

    my first vid. very basic. i was using a hand held 7yr old sony. i cant wait to get a cycling specific one.
    trail conditions were 6-8" of snow. i was the first person to ride the trails. there were some hiker tracks and some xc ski tracks other than that just deer prints.

    Get 'er Dune!

    This is the last of my dune vids ( until next year anyway ). This is the second days ride. A rainy day to start with, got a late start but found some great light for filming. Gonna try to spend a week straight there this Summer - endless areas, nooks & crantys to explore! Apperantly several lakes along the forest edge that I never got around to either.
    Enjoy! And Happy New Year Everyone!

    Nice vid, coastkid. We Belgians are also experiencing some real winter, after year upon year of drab, rainy mediocrity. Snow biking is such a rush, and I don't even ride a fatbike yet!

    Washington coast riding

    Here's some vids' from early last spring on the Washington (state) coast. This was my first test of the Sportzshot cam system and also my first attempt at filming with a boom. Also a little wider angle lens than the Oregon Dunes films - "flattens" out the terrain a little - shows more of the bike though. Not much variety of scenery here so might get redundant for some, but for those who are interested, they do show the Endo/ Lg. Marge combo doin' they're job. I'm running probably a little too low of pressure here and they're still rollin' right along! Having some cable and card issues with my cam systems so I haven't got any worthy snow & ice footage yet but replacements are on the way so hopefully soon!

    take care everyone, Ward

    the woods are nice mid winter with little vegitation, you can go ride off trail and just bomb through stuff on the pugsley...

    The first snowless fatbike video of the year. Thanks, coastkid.
    What are the concrete boxes standing in a row in that wood? Not anti-tank obstacles, I gather?

    hi orkje, the concrete cubes are indeed WW2 coastal defence blocks built incase there had been an invasion by `ze germans`, there were posts out on flat sand beaches to prevent gliders landing too,many stumps are still there,there are hundreds of these blocks often in rows of three...alot were made from POWs captured in 1939-40,they sometimes wrote on the tops of them before they set...
    click on my blog and search the labels to see more pics of them...

    Great, coastkid. Another video to make the waiting for my fatbike even more unbearable.

    Pugs On Patrol...

    heres a film from the weekend when i took tommy(bike patrol) and his work colleague hanneke who are both police bikepatrol officers in the netherlands along my local coastline when theve been over for a work meeting at edinburgh...
    weather was pretty awful with drizzle and `scotch mist` and got quite cold...
    i put this film together for them as well as a full hours worth of edited stuff thats in the post...despite the weather we had fun
    music is some traditional scottish with a bit of modern beat to it by one of the best live bands ive seen..the peatbog faeries...great band to see live after a few beers..

    I have to say your local coastline, with its ruined landing craft and other war memorabilia, begins to feel like home to me

    NIce video and editing. I need to learn how to edit my stuff and piece together more of a story... Also, interesting music

    I like the variety of camera angles, the fact that you have other riders in the video, the mix with still shots, etc. I need to learn how to make vids that are more interesting, rather than just raw footage like this from yesterday:

    Inspirational, as usual! Looking for an HD camera, bike-mountable, of course. What would you recommend?

    great film CK

    Looks like a good time was had by all.

    Felt a little sorry for the Lady on `skinney tyres` but she seemed to do ok
