    Outer Banks, NC trails?

    I will be heading down to the Outer Banks, NC with my family for a week long vacation. We will be staying in Duck right on the sound.

    I am bringing the bike down so I can keep my legs under me since we have a big ride with a lot of climbing in early August.

    Does anyone know of any good trails in that area? I see a lot of great trails on the mainland but nothing on the islands.

    Thanks

    Yeah...There aren't really trails. The Outer Banks all the way down is pretty flat and narrow. There are decent shoulders though, and you can ride the beach as well if you're set up for it. The only challenging thing can be the wind. Have fun!

    If you have a cheap bike ride it by the water . I bought a Fatbike for my OBX trips and it was great but I really only rode on the packed sand so it could have been any old bike

    Here's an idea.... go out on US 12 (or NC 12?) at about 1:00 on Saturday afternoon. Ride your MTB inbetween all the cars idling on the road, bumper to bumper, and just make sure you go into the wind to simulate a hill.

    Other than that, there ain't much.
