    North Sea Harr

    It`s a mist that comes inland when cold North Sea air meets warm air on the coast, often common at this time of year...

    Scorching weather

    Unreal heat this week for only the last week of March, time to get the Moonlander on the exposed low tide rocks again east of Barnes Ness,

    Extra Low tide ride

    Canty Bay to Seacliff. East Lothian S.E Scotland.
    Only rideable at the lowest of tides this is easily our hardest section of coast in the county. Seriously hard rocky riding on exposed greasy rock up to 9 ft below the high tide line and areas that are cut off below high tides into the base of the cliffs means this ride raises the pulse a bit with the dangers of a slip and injury...

    From the air last weekend by Microlight...
    The scenery is amazing, out in the Firth of Forth is the Bass Rock, home to the Worlds largest Gannet Colony...

    Microlight Flight 31.3.12 101 by coastkid71, on Flickr

    Perched on top of the cliffs at Gin Head are the buildings of the former M.O.D (Ministry of Defence) Cold War radar research site which closed in 1991.
    During 1944 radar blocking and decieving equipment was developed using captured German radar which was to be vital in the D Day Landings and saved thousands of Allied soldiers lives...

    Along below the cliff top ruins of Tantallon and a view up that most tourists do not see...

    Then around to Seacliff harbour, the worlds smallest commercial harbour...

    i live within 7 miles of the north east coast but have never rode it....so yesterday i jumped at the chance to ride holy island, with Jez, the guy who bought my pugsley earlier in the year.

    the weather was awesome, after 3 days of constant rain and wind, i awoke to clear blue skys and bird song....game on!

    we could of cycled all day if i wasnt due to be in the lake district later that evening, but it was great fun all the same....and we rode sand, roacks, mud and marshland, all in 11.4 miles of sunshine and the sand dunes were great.

    Clark's Point to Ekuk, Alaska, part 1

    Finally, I get to post a beach ride. This beach has been on my mind since I bought my Mukluk and found this thread a year ago. People have told me I can ride the beach all the way from Ekuk to the Kvichak River. I had business to attend to in Clark's Point, so I threw my Mukluk on the plane. The general consensus was I could not get to Ekuk from Clark's Point, but I did, if only out of shear determination. I now know the beach south of Ekuk is great riding. I also know I do not want to start at Clark's Point next time.

    Overlook of Clark's Point. Dillingham, home for me, is on the distant shores across the bay... The cannery at the far end of the spit (well, it looks like a spit in this pic anyway) has been inactive for many years...
    Beach/Sand riding picture thread.-clpoverlook.jpg

    There is an old story locally of a guy in Clark's Point who got drunk, stole a cat, and drove it to Ekuk, where he was promptly arrested. When he got out of jail, two or three years later if memory serves, he again got drunk. Wishing to make amends, he went to Ekuk to bring the cat, which was still there, back to Clark's Point. The cat became stuck in the mud and was lost to the tide. My guess is that this is that very cat... The Ekuk cannery, still active, lies in the background. To its left lie seasonal cabins used by the fishermen who work the beaches, and the world's largest run of sockeye salmon, with set nets...
    Beach/Sand riding picture thread.-cathaha.jpg

    Beyond the cat is this bog. I wallowed around in it for a good hour or two, feet soaking wet the whole time. When I finally had to admit to myself I was not going to get through that mire, I found a draw up the bank where the willows were thin enough I might just be able to drag my bike through it. It was not easy and it was not fun, but I made it...
    Beach/Sand riding picture thread.-themire.jpg

    Now a good mile or more from Clark's Point, even as the raven flies (we have no crows here), I slogged another two to three miles through wet, soft, unfriendly tundra to get to the far end of the impasse below. At this point, I am nearly back over gravel beach and I just have to find a way through the willows and down to it...
    Beach/Sand riding picture thread.-farend.jpg

    Ekuk no longer exists as a village, but there are some remnants. Here are the remains of the Russian Orthodax church and associated graveyard. The beach lies just to my back...

    Clark's Point to Ekuk, Alaska, part 2

    Finally on the beach, I headed south out of Ekuk. The beach riding was easy going, but time was limited by the incoming tide. I therefore took few pictures during the four mile or so (each way that is) ride. By the time I got back to Ekuk, I was nearly pinched off at the headlands. There would have been no climbing those banks, but I could have found a shelf to wait out the tide had I had to, so discomfort was the only real danger...

    A typical pile of flotsam. I have to admit, polluting as it is, it is colorful, even more so in person...
    Beach/Sand riding picture thread.-flotsom.jpg

    This would be "First Creek," one of the few places I could have gotten back up onto the tundra...
    Beach/Sand riding picture thread.-tracks.jpg

    In the draw of the creek I found this pulley. It was likely used at the sea-end anchor of a set net..
    Beach/Sand riding picture thread.-pulleysandi.jpg

    A closeup of the steel and wood construction... No, wrong picture! Anyone know how to edit captions and see the actual pics at the same time?

    Pictures never do justice. Nearly seven hours later, feet having been wet the whole time, they have been numb blocks of flesh for a very long time. At this point, Clark's Point is finally back in sight but still a mile and a half or so of tundra slogging away...

    I do not feel nearly as good as I look. I was beat and it was one sorry butt I finally hauled back in to the village another hour or so later. I was struck in absolute awe by the exploits of mikesee and his crew. I carried nothing but a sandwich and a camera in my frame pack. I will be going back to that beach, hopefully next fall, fully equipped for a multi-day adventure, but I will have the plane drop me in Ekuk itself. I am glad I accomplished this journey, but only because I was told by some that I could never do it. Having now done it, I see no reason to do it again!

    Twin Hills, Alaska Beach Ride

    I got in a good evening's ride, which is about all this beach amounts to. It is a great beach for riding, but after five miles or so it becomes too bouldered to continue. Beyond the boulders it becomes shear cliffs into the bay...

    We were joined by a local, village dog for the evening...

    Togiak, Alaska beach ride

    Across the bay from Twin Hills lies the much larger village of Togiak. It is actually a more extensive beach, but I will wait for warmer weather a lower water to cross the creeks. They are fast, deep, and cold...

    Though it lies on a flat delta itself, Togiak is surrounded on three sides by mountains. Togiak Bay borders the south...

    One of the year's last bits of bay ice...
    Beach/Sand riding picture thread.-3.-last-beach-ice.jpg

    I crossed the first creek easy enough, but i called it good a second creek. I was enjoying the ride too much to turn it into a wet, cold ordeal...
    Beach/Sand riding picture thread.-4.-2nd-creek.jpg

    A four-wheeler trail climbs above the second creek. It was a nice side trip. It sure helps to have a dog pulling on the hills...

    I finally made it to the beach. This is Sandy Point State Park, which is on the western part of the Chesapeake Bay in Annapolis, Maryland, sitting at the base of the Bay Bridge.

    It's funny as you ride by people that have never seen a fat bike before. There's lots of compliments, screaming, laughing, and people taking pictures of you. Even people on boats were taking pictures as I tried to ride a rocky outcropping. I LOL'd at all the attention.

    Click for bigger 360:


    Horseshoe Crab:


    Rocks are like magnets to me:



    I ride/hike out to close to the end of the rocky outcropping, then film my attempt at riding back.

    I learned a few things: lower pressures do wonders, more than one gear probably will help, and fast turns lead to washouts. I'll be back.

    Fatbike beach shakeout on the Necros

    " width="549">



    Today was our "shakeout day". The Neck Romancers are great.

    Crazy how well these rode over the loose rocky beach.

    These are around Puget Sound--across from Anderson Island.

    I experenced quicksand on the fatty last weekend & trust me, It doesn't help
    The front went down nearly to the hub, but thankfully I could bail & get onto firmer sand pretty quick. Visually there was little difference between firm wet sand & the jelly stuff.



    It was up next to the tree line, where the river meet the sand bar

    Still had a great day though

    riding the moonlander as much as i can this week, another ride today, this time a 30 mile trip up the north east coast.

    windy, sunny, showers but good temps and great scenery.

    nice to be on a beach again.

    started from home, rather than drive up, right along the local cycle route from wallsend up to north shields fish quay, then up to tynemouth, onto the beach at whitley bay to st marys lighthouse, then a little trip up blyth beach before travelling back down towards home.

    a grand day out, pics as always...

    I managed to hit the sand today also at Sandy Point State park in Annapolis, MD. I even pissed off a concerned husband thinking I was taking pictures of his wife. Got a chuckle out of that...

    So i purchased my pugsley complete from the lbs without framesaver applied to the frame... Question is... Do i dare take this bike out for riding on lake michgian beaches and waters during these summer konths? Or should i definitely framesaver the frame first before even riding on the fresh water?

    It just occurred to me on yesterday's beach ride that when it's raining, as it is now, that one could still go beach or sand riding and not feel an ounce of guilt for mashing up the trails!

    In fact, is it safe to assume that the beach is rideable most times of the year? I guess this depends where you are. What does the sand get like in the winter or very cold? I was thinking some parts closer to the water would get wet, then it'd freeze, and it would feel like riding on concrete and sandpaper. Am I daft or does it take super cold temps to freeze salt water?

    I've been to the beach (to ride my bike) 4 times in the last couple of weeks. That's more often than I've gone in many years combined (not counting my bro's wedding in the Florida Keys last summer.) It really didn't have much appeal to me until now.

    I finally put some gears on my bike (1x9), dropped the pressure down to around 7psi, and I was able to ride everywhere I wanted to yesterday. It was so much fun, but I wished that it wasn't always a solo venture. Where are all the MD/DC/VA fatties (besides swimming in the water )?

    Glad you are finding Life's a BEACH Drevil

    'Tis great fun and sandy surface can change from almost pavement like to ultra soft in a few feet !

    Also you don't need to worry about the width of the trail.

    I LOVE beach riding either on my own or in a Floatilla

    Seawater freeze point

    Depends on salinity, Drevil. On average 25-28 degrees F, so not super low temps. Like you've discovered, the beach is a great place to ride when it raining and trails are too muddy to ride without trashing them. Beach riding is great here in Nome when the tide zone freezes, really firm and fast. In spring, as the sea ice melts back off the beach a dark layer of sandpaper ice is sometimes exposed that also makes great riding. During an early spring ride this season, was able to follow a strip of this ice for miles. Would hav been hike a bike otherwise, cause it was warm and the rest of the snow too mushy for my Larrys on 70s.

    On The Beach at Captain Cook State Park

    A short ride with Trin this Saturday. We ran into another couple on fat bikes and followed a car down the highway for a ways that had a couple more on the back. The number of fatbikes out there is growing.
    As you can tell this beach has some very big rocks on it that were brought down by the last ice advance.
    I'd seen a picture of the cabin on the rocks years ago in a trip report by Kathy Sarns and Pat Irwin and then again last month in Randy's post. I've wanted to see it for real for a long time. Thanks Randy for your post which pushed me to go down there. The traffic wasn't even too bad this weekend.

    Upload size was wrong hence the cartoon narrow handlebars!

    Good Harbor/Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore

    I'm near the Lakeshore for a few days about 5 hours north of where I live, brought my bike with me. Got a short ride in last night at high tide, and way too many biting flies.

    really low lake levels by mbeganyi, on Flickr

    feels like low tide, even though we don't even have much tide action on lake champlain.
    really low water levels in the lake this summer.

    Wow motorman...great photos!

    I noticed on your blog that you had a picture of a WW2 bunker. Do you have any more pictures or information on that? As a kid I used to go hiking around the seacoast fortifications near San Francisco quite a bit and have retained a fascination with the subject.

    Cool blog, by the way.

    I rode my Pugs at the ocean during many months in Baja and through a couple Canadian winters. I didn't use framesaver for the first 3 years and there have been no ill effects. My Pugs saw some surface rust which wouldn't have been prevented by framesaver, but would have been reduced had I rinsed my bike down a bit more when it was exposed to salt.

    I've been really hit and miss with rustproofing the interior of my steel frames and I can't say I've noticed a difference. Surly frames in particular are not thin walled or fragile.

    The seat tube/BB area will get the worst of it so you can always pull your post and fire some framesaver down there. It will keep your seatpost from getting stuck.

    If I were you I would ride the bike as is and next time you are doing some major maintenance hit it up with some rustproofing treatment. It will be far easier to do a good job with the frame/fork stripped down most of the way.
    Safe riding,

    Few shots from a 24.5 mile ride on the Oregon Coast. Started at the Peter Iredale shipwreck at Fort Stevens and was going to see how far south i could get. Made it to Gearhart Ocean State Park. Only just about got hit once by a vehicle and only one wheel chasing dog tried to take me out - other than that all good

    Overall ride took longer than i hoped so was not able to ride further north from the shipwreck. Guess i'll save that for the next trip out.

    Almost wishing i had bigger tires

    Nice coast you have there!

    What's with the little flags you guys use on the beach? Is that a legal requirement stateside or something?

    I had it as a 'just in case' - there was a lot of vehicle traffic on the beach so figured it couldn't hurt to have it.

    Richie (Saltyman) drove 2 hours north from Newcastle for a day on the coast here in East Lothian, S.E. Scotland...
    It was Airshow day here at East Fortune, not the biggest airshow but thanks to the Games in London the Red Arrows have been out and about the last few days and put on a great display

    Some pics...

    enjoyed a fantastic day on the fatbikes today up in east lothian, scotland, fatbike central!

    guided around a few local tracks, some secret and coastline thats the stuff of dreams....brilliantly topped off by the local airshow, we started off sunshine and warm, a few showers never damped our spirits though, and clocked up 21 miles on the mixed terrain.

    big thanks to Bruce and Jason.

    Great Pix Salty

    Looks like a great day out

    Looks like Jase has caught a bad case of 'Garry Thumb'....... was this before or after his 'road to Damascus' moment ???

    Bruce is still very infected with 'Helium front Tyre' syndrome as well I see

    Silver Lake State Park, Mi today

    I'm home today from being up north for about four days at a music workshop. Did some riding at a 10 mile trail in a wooded dune, then went south down the coast. Several places I could not access because of crowded art fairs. Silver Lake State Park was crowded, but I was able to get in.

    Used this lighthouse to scope out whether or not the beach was too crowded to ride:



    Not bad, good enough to ride:

    Iím super-jealous of you guys who get to ride on the beaches in Australia and along Scotland. Really beautiful scenery. I wish we had coastal trail systems like this where I live in Northern California. Iím sure they exist, but I havenít found them yet.

    A rainy day ride on Cape Cod. The beaches were deserted and all the sand/salt was washed off by the rain and puddles by the time I got back. I love being out in the weather - couldn't get any wetter but the temps were warm.

    This is a bit OT, sorry, but it does involve pedalling at the beach.

    I'm frustrated and stuck here in North Queensland without my fatbike. Miserably low temps, sometimes down below 20ļC, and never a sight of rain and uninhabited beaches that stretch forever.

    So what to do? Been consoling myself by riding my motorbike, but an opportunity to go pedalling at the beach came up.

    The boat is a Hobie trimaran, and one of its features is foot propulsion - which apparently is much more efficient than paddling. It goes quite fast under sail or when pedalled. Pedalling position is like a recumbent, and I reckon I could pedal for several hours without fatigue - to achieve the same pace with paddles would burn me out fairly quickly.

    After a day out on this, I think I have found the perfect boat for getting my bike to interesting places. Obviously it couldn't be backpacked though!

    Here's some pics:

    Those Hobie foot propelled kayaks look pretty smart!
    We are picking up our first family canoe tonight, but I fully intend to get a faster, solo machine at some point(my guys aren't very "outdoorsy") and I have heard big wide family canoes suck to paddle solo.

    What model do you have? Are they pretty recent? I'd have to buy used probably, my necro pugs used most of my "fun money" for 2012!

    Had a few issues with my body since last weeks charity ride, sore back and knee has stopped me riding much, even walking has been hard!

    Today I went out for a slow beach ride, 18 miles 95% off road with a mixture of sand, gravel, huge rocks, tidal mud, grass etc.....no issues for the fatbike running 5psi.

    Lunch first



    The route











    In some places it was a jungle



    5psi squishy ness!





    Sand looks like sprinkles you put on ice cream









    While in town picking up a sandwich I bumped into these chaps



    Amazing how a little beach ride can cheer you up

    Got a nice ride in on the shore of Lake Huron. Lots of really deep sand there.

    Lexington

    Did you ride up through the "private" section north of the park? I don't believe it's "illegal" despite the signs if you stick to the waterline. 2000' of climbing? Did you get that on the road? I didn't go south last year, was busy watching that deer rescue, how was that?

    Three-Day Weekend in Togiak, Alaska

    I headed down the beach on Friday evening after work in alternating heavy rain and sun. Saturday was a beautiful day, and it was the day my only pictures were taken. Saturday night, right about dark, a storm hit the coast with high winds and very heavy rains. The creek I was camped on rose 4 - 6 inches overnight. I decided I had better get back across the creeks while I could, so I headed back towards the village. I had no interest in attempting to pitch my tent in 65+ mph gusts (it was interesting enough just getting it down without losing it), so I went all the way back. So, it was really only a two-day weekend, I guess...

    Good looking girls with tat's, piercings, booty-shorts and nipple stickers, what's there not to like ? (except maybe for the booty-shorts and nipple stickers)
    I wasn't really bothered by the absense of bikes.

    Well, technically it was a beach several thousand years ago when the desert basin was covered by the ocean. But yes, we love hippy nipples!!!

    Any recommendations for lube for sandy riding? I'm on vacation on the outer banks this week with my fat front DiSSent and only brought a dry, wax lube. Will this work ok?

    the days are shorter now, autumn has set in with night time temps down to 3c and the colder days are making it hard to get out on the bike after a cold day at work!



    i must carry on though, bikes are my only release and my life has been better for the extra miles this year....

    yesterday i popped over to the north east coast, despite being run down and weak, it was great to force a chilly 16 mile ride out on the beach, from tynemouth to blyth and back.







    shorts will be getting left at home soon...

















    still love riding this bike, though octobers fatbike meet is almost here, so i must try and not break it before hand!

    As a Brit now living in Canada I have to say I really enjoy your photos of Blighty. Yes I have the Rockies, snow and lots and lots of space to ride in but I do miss the coast towns. Keep them coming mate.

    Lake Erie Beach ride

    Good day for a local beach ride, very low water level in Lake Erie as well as surrounding lakes and ponds. Remnants of an old dock that is normally submerged could be seen.

    I've had my Pug for almost a week, so I figured it was time to ride it in the sand. This is a local river not too far from where I live. It didn't occur to me to check the tide tables since this is a river, but it's close enough to the ocean that the tides definitely effect the river. Luckily it was pretty close to low tide when I showed up.





    Taiwan could probably TIG weld a ham sandwich to a dictionary these days, but its been a while since they were doing brazing.

    Never really understod the two daily pics threads thing.
    This one should be sticky, if not only for the quality of some fotography work present

    The Beaches of Monterey Bay, California

    This is the closest beach riding to me in California's central coast; usually deserted mid-week. Some pix:

    This beach is frequented by equestrians out for some exercise. (gopro screen grab)


    This fellow was trying his luck for Striped Bass. (gopro screen grab)


    This beached barge is the only object interrupting the shoreline for miles and miles.


    The blue thing on the Pug's rack is a box for collecting trash; the beach was very clean today so I didn't have to use it..


    I'm not sure what kind of barge it was; perhaps a fuel tanker?


    Sailboats are often seen transiting between Monterey and Santa Cruz.


    The tip of the Monterey Peninsula is just visible on the horizon (framed by the structure on the barge)

    Met fellow fatbiker Blinkie today for a spot of coast riding along the Moray coast 22 miles of near perfect weather here in NE Scotland







    Fail of the day goes to me for this *> But, thanks to awesome trail side mechanical skillz (& a spare hanger in the bag), we were rolling again in less than 10 Min.











    Close encounter - YouTube

    An excellent day out with a nice wee fly past to finish * ;D

    Thanks to Blinkie for the following pics

    New Years Day Ride; The Sands of Lindisfarne

    Time to get this thread bumped up!

    Film posted on films thread too

    A sober Hogmany (rare for a Scotsman ) and up early and under an hours drive down the coast and over the border into England, and a dawn ride across the 8 miles of sands exposed at low tide to Holy Island...

    The Sands at Lindisfarne are littered with the wrecks of fishing boats and Steamships, which appear out of the moving sands and low tides.
    The area is steeped in history from days of Viking raids to ship wrecks, smuggling and pirates...

    Today we had the first good daylight minus tides of 2013, so Barny and I headed out to the end of the road at Narrow Cape to ride up the beach to the Sacramento River. The winds were light out of the south, and a few rain showers drifted through, but otherwise it was mild and very nice for a day in March.

    We saw the usual assemblage of critters you would expect to run into on a Kodiak beach ride: foxes, blacktail deer, buffalo, bald eagles, a zillion sea birds, sea otters, harbor seals, Steller sea lions, grey whales, etc. No bear sign, but I know a few are out of their dens already. Anyway, on to the pics...

    Negotiating the sloughs to reach the beach:



    On the beach and northward bound:



    A few minor creeks cross the beach:



    Our destination is at the base of the mountain in the center of the image:





    On a minus tide it is relatively easy to get around the few rocky headlands that separate the beach sections as you get closer to the mouth of the Sacramento River:



    Most of the tracks on the beach are from buffalo:





    Arriving at the mouth of the Sacramento River:





    After an early lunch we headed back south. Homemade sourdough French bread, Black Forest ham, and Havarti. YUMMY!











    There were a number of blacktail deer down on the beach snacking on kelp:





    Foxes also used the low tide to poke around the rocks:



    Mostly it was untracked sand:



    There were buffalo sprinkled all along the coast:







    After riding south for a while we climbed over a few headlands until we got up on top of Narrow Cape which is a wide plateau of meadow and tundra:





    Buffalo on Narrow Cape too:



    Riding the clifftops:





    After crossing Narrow Cape we headed back to our starting point:



    Four and half hours well spent.
