    Hi, coastkid71! I was very impressed by your films - http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=coastkid71 !
    Thank you!

    Hi, from Sibiria! Sorry, but all my photos might be called as "swamp riding" instead "sand/beach riding".

    Siberia is a really mad and wild country!



    Next year I am going to take part in the Trans-Baikal marathon race on fatbikes in the pair with my daughter . It will be real adventure!

    Zmey70,

    Sounds interesting, can you tell us a bit more about the race. How long, winter or summer, how many people and that sort of thing. I had a quick look o the web but it's all in Russian.... funny that Maybe you could put it in it's own thread.

    I've seen an interesting DVD about two Aussie guys who rode from Moscow to somewhere in China, an epic ride that went through some beautiful country in Russia.

    Al,

    Trans-Baikal is one of interesting events near the Lake Baikal. In 2010 Trans-Bakal will take place from July 19 to July 25. The registration will end in June 20. The length of the race will be 310 km divided by 5 stages with singletracks and gravel roads along the west Lake Baikal coast from Maloe Goloustnoe to Olkhon Island.
    http://www.waytorussia.net/Baikal/De...ns/Olkhon.html
    In 2009 30 commands (60 racers) took part in this race.
    The course of the race is suitable for fatbiking because of much sand, mud, gravel and swamps on the course though the forms of landscape are large and smooth.

    There are many interesting places for fatbiking around Irkutsk and Baikal Lake.
    For example:
    Traditional 100 km ride across the Lake Baikal in winter on fatbikes, http://pics.livejournal.com/macsimka/gallery/00016sb5 .
    Irkut river valley fatbiking, http://pics.livejournal.com/macsimka/gallery/000151hw .
    Kaya river valley fatbiking, http://pics.livejournal.com/macsimka/gallery/0001aec4 .
    Wild and amazing world of Olkhinskoe Plateau, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGvADRz9ntY .
    Fatbiking on Olkhon Island, http://pics.livejournal.com/kaer3/gallery/00007fb9 .

    If somebody has interest in the information about that I can create a special topic "Fatbiking in Siberia" or “Trans-Baikal marathon race”.

    Zmey,

    I'm interested in reading and seeing more of the Siberian cycling scene. Some of your pics look like some areas I've been here in Alaska. At what latitude are you located ?

    These are from a couple years ago. Test riding my fat bike before powder coating - my first peddle strokes! I had just finished assembling it an hour or so before these pics.

    Great Pix as always Guys

    1st ride on the beach for quite some time yesterday (reasons to be explained later !?!).

    Here are some Pix to set the mood.

    Yes those are (or were) four wheel drive cars stuck in the sand.

    The `wreck` is the Steamboat Anastasia, lost 1946. Here is a link to more info:-

    Blood Calls

    La Pugsdozer and I went to the river to check on the status after Alex (the hurricane)...

    We were impressed to see everything converted in a big riverbed (I was riding in what it was a Golf field)





    we had some fun though...we even found some sand!



    suddenly... La Pugdozer went crazy...totally out of control.





    of course!!



    she went nuts!





    specially with her blood cousin...The Bulldozer:



    she just couldn't contain herself



    She ask them to join us and play...but they were resting after a full week of labor...they ask us to see their work instead:





    * I didn't say anything but, due to their job I wasn't able to keep riding on that side of the river

    A nice ride last night

    Sun going down.......

    Moon coming up.....

    Tide coming in .......

    And a deserted beach , Bliss

    I did have a mechanical first last night, the none drive side crank arm fell off

    Bit of a surprise that, luckily not too far from civilization and with careful pedaling it stayed back on despite no crank bolt (lost in the sand somewhere!).

    Enjoy,
    Dr FG

    Advice

    Great pics and bikes every one.
    Dr Feelygood/Coastkid where did you get your bikes, wheels and tyres. I live by the coast and some great beaches (Tynemouth/Whitley Bay and the Northumberland coast).
    I would like to start a new build and have got some inspiration from all the bikes and scenery.
    Appreciate every ones advice.
    Thanks
    Skye

    Hey Skye,


    I went to lived in Newcastle for 1 year and loved the beaches around the coast.

    Used to get the metro and feed my coastal addiction at weekends

    Here are some useful threads for you :-

    http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.ph...ghlight=europe

    My bike was imported from the USA from http://www.highintensitybikeshop.com/

    but at that time £1 = nearly $2 so even with shipping and import duty it was good.

    As mentioned in the 2nd thread Billys in the UK has and can get all you need but it IS expensive.

    You can also pick up stuff on Ebay if you are lucky.

    Cheapest 100mm BB I`ve found in the UK is here :-

    after Alex, La Huasteca is a Pugs Paradise...rocks in the sizes you could imagine...a couple from today....





    I was so happy today...the ride was amazing...felt a little sorry for the guys on their skinny tires when I was riding on the river line...pretty much with my tires on the water.

    Fat bikes are indeed so much fun...I'll definitely go back tomorrow ....didn't take any footage, I need to get a tripod today!

    Once you have experienced really fat tyres, everything else seems totally weedy !

    Also love riding in the water,Endos (& Larry) cut a real swathe

    La Huasteca was closed this weekend...I had to find another place to ride...a friend recommend me to go to Las Adjuntas...it was nice while it last...again, another flat...haven't checked the tube to see what was the reason but I'm guessing it was my bad work on the patch...anyways...today I learned the hard way I need to bring my stuff to the rides and that I shouldn't put my need to ride over going "to ride prepared"...the hike up wasn't pleasant!

    I must go again!


    OT: currently in the market for a cheap bag able to contain a Surly tube, tools, mini-pump and perhaps some other small stuff...considering Jandd Frame Pac.

    Started today with a lovely Sunday morning beach ride.

    Tide going out,sunny and 18degrees Celsius

    As usual I got very wet and really did put the sand into my sandals.

    The beach varies so much in texture and topography.

    I really like the " Grand Canyon" in the sand.

    Fatbikes rule, but even they have limits.

    Crossing an innocuous looking riverlet, I found myself stopped VERY suddenly and the Pug sinking in rapidly !!!

    Needless to say I bailed ASAP. Sinking stopped so I got a Pic or two and then carefully extracted my bike

    Back on the Beach...

    After alot of other riding and then a week ill with the cold its time to hit the beach
    been itching to try the F&R Larrys on sand and have to say there ace,
    the 6 mile road ride each way was easy, squirmy steering free and gone is that rear tyre bobbing when pushing hard on the pedals,must be the 120 TPI sidewalls...
    apart from a trailer i reckon its Larrys all round for all types of riding
    surly have done a top job on these tyres,im sure there rolling better on tarmac despite being louder-which i love
    anyway a wee ride around Yellowcraig park early today...nice and cold breeze kept away all bar a few dog walkers...some pics...more on Da blog...





















    plan it...build it....ride it...love it....

    Autumn beach ride

    Dark clouds, rain and wind, typical Dutch autumn weather.
    And perfect weather to test my new Ortliep Rack-pack. I put this waterproof bag, size small, with the two Compression straps direct on the handlebar.
    And it works!!

    Okay, it needs some small adjustments but the first test went very well.

    I recently put the fat back and shifter back on for the winter. Took a ride out on the sandspit on a whim.

    I'll have to make a more complete and artistic record of the ride at some point (perhaps try making a movie), but here's some of what I snapped as I went.







    New island. This was all beach when I was here last year. A spring Nor 'Easter made a wash-through into a wash out. Maybe I need a packraft.


    I'm covered in beer.

    Where did this thread go? Too much snow flying methinks.

    Here's some pics from a ride from a few weeks back when we were in between snowstorms. Sandy Neck on Cape Cod. A fantastic place to ride a fatbike, but watch out for the tide and seasonal trail closures (due to seabird nesting).

    icecreamjay,
    Great pictures of the cape. I grew up in Bourne and now live in Attleboro. I've got to get down there to Sandy Neck. I have a lot of memories from there.

    Yep, great pics CK, looks like you have some major tides over there. In the 4th and 5th pics it looks like the tidal flats just go on forever.

    This has been a wonderful thread! Never seen a fatbike in person but they look like a blast to ride. The varied scenery in many of these shots is beautiful to see.

    Scuba diving anyone?

    Right now the snow is so deep in SE Michigan, only trails packed down by snowmobiles are rideable by Fatbike. I was the only biker riding the trail today. One snowmobiler stopped to check this trailside activity out, and I stopped too to take a pic. Thought I'd share this pic here. This local trail I ride has a pond-side beach near the trail. If I'm not mistaken, there's a local scuba-diving school that uses this pond all year round to train people. Not something you expect to see on a ride, especially in winter.

    Got some free time to meet up with Rottendan yesterday and rode some of his home turf (well, more like sand) in Chatham, Massachusetts.

    Headed out on the west side of the beach, which is basically a barrier island of sorts. There was a good amount of ice still left over here.

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5444059838/" title="m1 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.static.flickr.com/5215/5444059838_95a3b60d39_b.jpg" width="800" height="600" alt="m1" /></a>

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5441581841/" title="2011-02-12 012 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.static.flickr.com/5174/5441581841_415987d346_z.jpg" width="480" height="640" alt="2011-02-12 012" /></a>

    A few miles down the beach you get to a couple of huge open sand flats before you reach where the beach has connected to the island.

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5442187820/" title="2011-02-12 020 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm5.static.flickr.com/4079/5442187820_7b69443d73_b.jpg" width="1024" height="768" alt="2011-02-12 020" /></a>

    Here's Dan finally having fun with a trap

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5439510955/" title="2011-02-12 025 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.static.flickr.com/5131/5439510955_6a62b28605_b.jpg" width="1024" height="576" alt="2011-02-12 025" /></a>


    About 6 miles down the beach you get to Monomoy Island, I had to snap this one just for the sheer "Cape Coddiness" of it

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5440116746/" title="2011-02-12 033 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm5.static.flickr.com/4076/5440116746_7a53505c79_b.jpg" width="1024" height="576" alt="2011-02-12 033" /></a>

    A scene from Jaws. No, we didn't huck it.

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5439512477/" title="2011-02-12 035 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.static.flickr.com/5260/5439512477_33297193e9_z.jpg" width="640" height="480" alt="2011-02-12 035" /></a>

    Then some fresh tracks in the sand.

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5440118336/" title="2011-02-12 041 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.static.flickr.com/5220/5440118336_80c7114b46_z.jpg" width="480" height="640" alt="2011-02-12 041" /></a>

    Then we ran into a good sized colony. All these seals draw Great Whites in the summer.

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5440119120/" title="2011-02-12 045 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.static.flickr.com/5258/5440119120_e41a60a433_b.jpg" width="1024" height="768" alt="2011-02-12 045" /></a>

    We didn't want to mess with them so we turned around.


    So far we had been riding into the wind, and it had been picking up bit by bit, turning around and enjoying the tailwind was pure joy.

    Speaking of vicarious travel experience. Check out this state park in Brazil, LENÇOIS MARANHENSES. Miles upon miles of sand dune strips interlaced with fingerlike "ponds". Just look at the images google brings up, you'll get the idea. Its like the Sahara, if the Sahara were half water. Decent size too (by lower 48 standards), 44 miles end to end and maybe half as wide.

    I read about it in Nat'l Geographic and all I could think was OMG I must bring my fatbike there. Probably never get there, but maybe one of you guys will and can snap some good pics

    I'm beginning to think you should change your name from coastkid to rustybike

    Obviously you're on top of the dreaded iron worm. Your maintenance schedule would be instructive - I avoid salt water like the plague.

    Definitely a good idea, there's already a lot of info already floating around in various threads, but it would nice to have it all in one place.

    A long beach ride looks like be fun.

    Anyone know where this is possible in the UK? (Calling Coastkid to the forum)

    I suppose Google Earth is also the answer

    I know those 2 well.

    Childhood on S. Uist, and family from Harris. Definitely on the list

    Ha! wish I'd thought of doing that!

    Lowest tides expose all sorts of stuff - I reckon I can smell that harbour from your photos.

    Awesome, I took advantage of the other benefit of that moon. Night ride. Could wander around without the light on, didn't try any singletrack by moonlight though. I have ridden singletrack by moonlight, but only in the snow, no more of that around here anymore, thank god.

    hey beach riders...how long are your typical rides?
    I'm planning on going to the beach soon and was thinking on riding the whole South Padre Island coast south to north..fooling around in the dunes a bit and then going back to the hotel...probably some 20 mi total....is that too much?

    *I also need to know how to put my pugsley on my car in a way the Wife doesn't notice it

    Looks like it may be BUSY !!!

    Especially if you go at Spring Break :- http://springbreak.sopadre.com/2011/help/

    Looks like great beaches, but ?? very hot, so I would see how you do as riding on very softy sand is a leg killer !

    Looking forward to the PIX

    Fylde Coast/Morecombe Bay area John, specifically rode from Pilling to Lancaster, trying to get as much beach as possible, aiming to work my way up to Arnside and then cross the bay !

    although I don't think this is realistic :-0

    Hey Steve,
    best way to cross is via the TRAIN from Arnside to Grange Over Sands.....

    The Tidal Bore at Arnside is notoriously FAST and Dangerous !

    There is a Sand Guide for Morecambe Bay :- http://www.morecambe.co.uk/walk.html

    Steve,

    I`m a bit further round at Barrow-in-Furness .

    http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=barr...N&hl=en&tab=wl

    I do know the Arnside/Grange/Flookborough areas to an extent, but not (yet) from a beach riding point of view.

    My main stamping ground is Walney Island and the Duddon Estuary around Roanhead and up past Askam-in-Furness.

    John, what and where do you have in mind ? Could be interested

    Cheers,
    Dr FG

    Paging - Dr F and Steve

    I'm off for 11 days from next Thursday, so what about something on or between the bank holidays?

    Meeting up around Morecambe or the South Lakes, I'm happy to travel, aim for a low tide morning ride.

    What about the morning of the royal wedding while the wife's glued to the box it's a free day for the riders out there with no interest in the big day but a free day's holiday to use?

    I`m off from next Monday for 1 week.

    You are more than welcome if you want to come and see the Beaches of Furness

    PM me if you would like to discuss further

    I just did a recognition trip to Padre Island...beach and dunes "seemed" like heaven to ride!....seemed?....I went bikeless!! ... It was a wife time trip....she is leaving tomorrow for a family visit trip...I even had her permission but actually I preferred to leave the bike at home...I would have been able to ride for a while this morning but it was going to be a very quick ride... and I didn't want that...beach has a good firm area and I could even stand with one foot on the dunes and there was no sand-sucking from it I stopped a..."beach guard"?...and ask if I could bring my bike to ride the beach...he asked back: "Does it have motor?"...hehe...motor-less bikes are good to go!....soon guys...soon!

I don't know if I had my expectations too high or just wasn't lucky... but all in all my ride just wasn't the best of the rides
    The sand & bike on sand experience was great, I can't complain about that, is just that, counting this is my first beach-fat bike experience and all, in terms of relaxing and beach enjoyment on a bike, I think SPI won't make a top 50 list... (at least not the 20 miles I rode)

    The ride started early, around 7:30 am...
    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5728063103/" title="DSC_0001 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.static.flickr.com/5026/5728063103_f75e70ee57_z.jpg" width="640" height="426" alt="DSC_0001"></a>

    The night before I did a short pressure test on the sand close to the little cabana, so I had some things already done.

    The day was very cloudy and very windy too… I started almost at the very south point of SPI going north and the wind was against me…. this wasn’t really bothering me, but it drained a lot energy.

    The beach in front of the buildings has a sort of 3 lanes to ride…the hard and wet sand you could find close to the water… a semi-packed sand were you could see some cars had pass…and a very nice and loose but full of seashells sand.

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5728063419/" title="DSC_0006 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.static.flickr.com/5216/5728063419_24aebd623d_z.jpg" width="640" height="426" alt="DSC_0006"></a>

    I started in the middle sand and it felt really great… I was able to, finally, fell the flotation on a really fat bike terrain. It was awesome.

    About the first 7 mi were in front of the buildings so I wanted to do those fast, looking for a more scenic beach, so I pumped some air and went for the sand close to the water.

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5728615500/" title="DSC_0010 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.static.flickr.com/5082/5728615500_7f9cb7dc87_z.jpg" width="640" height="426" alt="DSC_0010"></a>

    And finally the last two buildings….

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5728614650/" title="DSC_0024 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.static.flickr.com/5025/5728614650_2d03211cec_z.jpg" width="640" height="426" alt="DSC_0024"></a>

    I was hoping for the best but.... this is what I found:

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5728066213/" title="DSC_0027 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm3.static.flickr.com/2466/5728066213_89e56a1030_z.jpg" width="640" height="426" alt="DSC_0027"></a>

    And it never stopped.

    I had nothing to do but keep riding...

    Around 10:30 the sun showed up

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5728615202/" title="100_0015 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm4.static.flickr.com/3242/5728615202_9b4eb27464_z.jpg" width="640" height="360" alt="100_0015"></a>

    A Portuguese Man o' War in the way…

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5728616506/" title="DSC_0028 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm4.static.flickr.com/3233/5728616506_4c24cd8bdb_z.jpg" width="640" height="426" alt="DSC_0028"></a>

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5728067055/" title="DSC_0031 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm4.static.flickr.com/3517/5728067055_dbe3275acb_z.jpg" width="640" height="426" alt="DSC_0031"></a>

    I asked at two of the beach access if I could go over the dunes and they just didn’t know… so I won’t lie…I tried some!

    But first…I found a nice lane (just for a while)…between the dunes and the seashell sand…

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5728062837/" title="DSC_0032 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.static.flickr.com/5304/5728062837_dfc3e9a0ac_z.jpg" width="425" height="640" alt="DSC_0032"></a>

    The dunes are not so wide and you can’t actually ride a continuous line over it so you would need to get out and in to ride some…. I wasn’t able to find a proper pressure to not sink in those conditions… at some point with some speed I would not…but that wasn’t easy to do not having a good straight path…that, and not knowing if I could actually be there, kept me out of the Dunes.

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5728066483/" title="DSC_0039 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm4.static.flickr.com/3074/5728066483_34633c6102_z.jpg" width="640" height="426" alt="DSC_0039"></a>

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5728136025/" title="100_0023 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.static.flickr.com/5214/5728136025_006d79d16a_z.jpg" width="640" height="360" alt="100_0023"></a>

    Then I rode a while on the middle sand until I felt the wind was starting to lose its strength…the first I thought was that it was going to change and I was going to have headwind again… So I rest for a little while, had my brunch…it was 12:15 already…and then went back.

    My rest stop and view…

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5728614900/" title="DSC_0045 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.static.flickr.com/5304/5728614900_104f88694c_z.jpg" width="640" height="426" alt="DSC_0045"></a>

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5724917838/" title="South Padre Island by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.static.flickr.com/5139/5724917838_054ae0a18a_z.jpg" width="640" height="426" alt="South Padre Island"></a>

    And my first view going back

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5728617358/" title="DSC_0048 by martinsillo, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.static.flickr.com/5264/5728617358_baa634111f_z.jpg" width="640" height="426" alt="DSC_0048"></a>

    I did some filming, but nothing close to what I had in my head.

    I also found a real officer on my way back and asked... you can't go over the dunes!

    Must be frustrating having all those people down there.

    You need to start a Jaws rumour.

    Looks like a good ride anyway.

    ^^ yep, the sand/bike experience was great and I definitely will try it again sometime, but that much people wasn't what I was expecting...I can't imagine how more crowded this beaches get during the spring break weeks.

    On my way back, when it was even more crowded, I was able to hear a lot of compliments and wow's about the bike. I also almost ran over a little boy, my breaking even lifted my rear wheel...for me was scary...he just keep running hehe.

    So Martin, is the Larry really a better performer in the sand with the tread reversed? I know the Endomorph works better that way. Looks like an awesome ride, cannot wait to get my fully fat build going along such that I can hit up the beaches this summer.
    Don’t frail and blow if you’re going to Braille and Flow.

    Martin glad you felt the `float across sand` sensation
    you need to come to Scotland for a beachride, i never met anyone on the beaches of Harris in 4 days!

    My friend Jason and i were comparing my rear Larry (not reversed) to his rear Endomorph (not reversed) for the beach and i am getting more grip on the soft stuff,
    also when rock riding and the tyres are covered in sand his tread is more crusted with sand than my larry and it spins out...
    though i also have a bit lower low gears which helps a lot 22t/ 36t with mechs again to his 24t Alfine with a 32 up front,-
    i plan going down to a 20t granny soon! be super low then
    plan it...build it....ride it...love it....

    @LP
    Sorry Leo, can't help you there...I've only used Larrys on my LMs...I don't know about Larry vs Endo but I could predict a better performance on sand with a wider rim....after my experience I think I wouldn't go lower that 80mm on my rims for beach riding.

    hope to make it sooner than later CK, you guys really have beautiful places to ride.

    I got out to the Silver Lake Sand Dunes today, they let me ride the pedestrian section. Used dual Larry's in the normal direction. Worked fantastic. Seems to track better in the downhills too, now I understand how you are getting some good DH speed in your vids. I used about 8PSI. I was at my favorite sandy gravel pit yesterday and actually did a downhill I've never had the guts to do with an Endomorph in back.

    That's a major + over riding in sub-zero temperatures.

    Indiana dunes beach riding. In 2 days I biked the entire beach from Gary harbor to Michigan City power plant.
    It was fun, alot of comments from beach folks. Plenty of logs & such to practice balancing & riding along as well to make it more interesting.


    The last pic was the "endo' the beach".

    Darryl's have held up fine for all trail riding so far!
    Really like how everything came together for this bike. I haven't ridden my EX9 at all since this one was built. Would have liked a carbon fork, but since it needs the wider hub, I don't see it happening anytime soon.

    The THIRD way :)

    I live on the end of a Peninsula, and so far have only sand biked on the North and West sides.

    The South beaches front Morecambe Bay, which is really rather beautiful too.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morecambe_Bay

    Saturday dawned bright and breezy, so the third way had to be done

    I went a bit mad with the camera, here are a small selection

    10 days Roadtrip around the NW to NE Scottish coastline with the pugs on the back of the car, camped out at a few beaches and often just pulled in off the road,unloaded the bike and went for a play, strong gales most of the week and sideways rain showers, but between the rain it was as always stunning as ever up there
    pre hoiliday season means empty beaches most evenings and it did not get that dark until after midnight...
    Oh that clear green Atlantic sea that looks so inviting is only about 5 degrees celcius
    loads of pics to come but here are a few...

    Scotland's great, isn't it? Open access, ride anywhere.

    Great pics.
    As little bike as possible, as silent as possible.
    Any bike, anywhere, anytime.
