    Sorry no photo - too dark for my phone - but I just went on a quick 6 mile trek in a dry riverbed in Palm Springs. Dodging meth folks under the bridge - and finding out that many of the local river bed plants have very good defense mechanism - I was able to ride in some really soft sand with the pugs! I only bogged once because I was watching the coyote who was following me.

    From the Esmeralda 3 miles south east and back.

    Now I want the BFL on the front!
    My bike is heavier than yours - it does not have Carbon or Titanium parts - I love it!

    Smile Rock riding; Carr Rocks


    Sat evening at the Carr Rocks 001 by coastkid71, on Flickr

    Evening ride across the Carr Rocks at Seacliff, East Lothian, SE Scotland on the SURLY Moonlander Fatbike.
    This coastline is part of the Sunday ride for FORTH FAT UK Fatbike Gathering in 3 weeks, some of this will be part of the hard option

    coastrider: FORTH FAT; 4 Weeks to go...

    coastrider: FORTH FAT Gathering Article in Edinburgh`s Evening News


    Sat evening at the Carr Rocks 008 by coastkid71, on Flickr

    1.2 meter spring low tide allowed a visit out to the exposed wreck of the SS Poderosa that ran aground on the imfamous rocks in 1896.


    Sat evening at the Carr Rocks 007 by coastkid71, on Flickr

    Not all wrecks here were accidents but caused by `The Pagans of Scoughall` who lured ships onto the rocks at night in storms with a lantern tied to a horses head and leg and walked along the cliff tops, ships at sea would see the bobbing light and believe it to be a ship at anchor and come into shore, and meet their fate on the rocks...
    You can read more about the SS Poderosa wreck and the Wreckers on a previous blog post;

    coastrider: East Lothian Whisky Galore

    The Jones steel Truss Fork recently fitted to the Moonlander is an improvement riding the rocks, once up to speed the comfort and steering is better, the front end does not flip flop like before,
    The rocks here are a real tester, who would have thought bicycles could ride stuff like this...

    Barely used the moonlander since buying the Fargo and now adding the krampus to the fleet.

    My pal loves it, so I let him ride it on the odd weekend, just to get some mikes on it.

    Today it was a nice spring sunny day with temps around 6-8c....but felt warmer when the sun came out......so we done a 33 mile trip around the coast and river Tyne.

    12 miles in a coffee and ice cream stop.





    Can't keep up with the fatbike on sand.....







    Then a small detour to Newcastle quayside for a bratwurst and a pint!

    Nauset Beach, Cape Cod

    From last nights ride. The beach seems to be coming back after all the winter storms. Much better shape than a month ago.

    Great pix. I hope to be fat biking there soon. My buddy bought a 9zero7 and I have a Moon lander.
    Want to check out all the bayside beaches to see the damage from this winter.

    Hey Duane, Nice to see some Nauset Beach Fat Bike pics...you know I used to ride the lower sand from Orleans to the Chatham break back in the late 80s on my MTB (I lowered the pressure in my tires to 12psi, and had to stay in wet-"lower" sand). One time I was stopped by Chatham Police, and told "no 2 wheeled machines are allowed on the beach"...how times have changed.

    Another stunning day with minus tides, so Adelia, Brooks, Maya, and I headed out to the Burton Ranch to do the usual tour up to the Sacramento River and then down to Narrow Cape. The beach was the softest I have ever experienced and the way up to the beach had it's sloggy parts. After having a snack at the river mouth and then heading back south the sand had settled enough to make things a bit firmer and more rideable. Unfortunately about a mile from our starting point my ancient and rotting rear Endomorph pooped the sheets and I got to push back while the others continued down to explore Narrow Cape. I sat on a bluff and consoled myself with a few beers and the view.

    So, up the beach we went:









    The locals were hanging out:



    There was some riding followed by portaging, followed by riding, etc:







    On the way home things had firmed up a little and the riding was easier:









    My tire pooched out:



    Brooks, Maya, and Adelia continued on to Narrow Cape:



    I pushed my disabled rig towards the beer:





    I sat on a bluff and awaited their return from Narrow Cape:



    Some horses and eagles kept me company:

    Yesterday evening in Togiak, Alaska...

    The hound and I set off for an evening ride after working on a new wireless network in the school...

    The beach is not exposed at high tide, as the melt is just getting going here. The creeks are not yet flowing with all their breakup might...

    Out in the bay are the Walrus Islands walrus sanctuary, which is well worth visiting if you get the chance...
    Beach/Sand riding picture thread.-dscn0270.jpg

    We turned back about two hours out from the village due to hunger, not loss of light. We have light till almost midnight already...

    The shadows make my butt look big and my head small. I am not really shaped like this...

    It's an ancient Endomorph. This was common among the early run of Endos where the bead rotted off the sidewall. Any pressure could do it, eventually.

    “Forth” or “fourth”? As in, the fourth fat meetup, or in a place called “Forth”?

    Hey;

    Props to my sand riding brethren. I was riding down by a local river yesterday. Huge long sand bars deposited along the banks in one area, a lot of it completely dry and soft. MAN... that stuff is MUCH harder to ride in than 8-10" of snow. Almost impossible really. No thanks... Too much work... I'll stick to snow and dirt!

    Ride on!
    Most people ply the Well Trodden Path. A few seek a different way, and leave a Trail behind.

    Don't judge an entire classification of soil just on one experience. Sand varies greatly not only by location but also by condition. One of my favorite examples of the latter is heading out to the beach after a hard rain. Not necessarily while the sand is still wet, just before the foot-goers have a chance to stomp it all up. Fun stuff!

    Here are some surfaces Fat Bikes enjoy.

    My Sunday morning ride along the shingle bank to Hurst Castle and back. the castle was built by Henry VIII in 1544.

    Home is top left in the picture. The ride is to the bottom right and back home.



    Starting out along the top of the shingle bank, just about possible on a normal MTB but very hard work rather than a pleasure



    About half way there, Castle in the distance, very soft now and only a fat bike can cope.



    Now at the very bottom right hand, east facing shingle. Only about 10' high and very steep sides. Cannot believe I can ride this.



    The lagoon behind the Castle, has lots of foreshore and seaweed to ride. The seaweed pops like bubblewrap as you ride.



    These blocks of bricks are from the Castle foundations and it is going to cost millions to repair them



    Getting back home now, towards the top left of the pic. Tides just gone down so some great sand riding. Still soft though, and even the Moony wheel sank at one point.



    Rode to very top left of the picture, tried for a swim but still too cold for me. then back home, every surface impossible or hard work by mtb, easy by fat bike.

    Nice photo! I grew up in Rochester.
    That sand was really packed down. The horses and wagon wheels have barely left marks.
    My grandparents had a cottage on Port Bay and I remember fishing in the Lake off the Bluffs. Used to count them as we would return to hot spots.

    Sadly the UK scene for fatbiking seems to be obsessed with riding them on regular trails and some UK Forum comments of beachriding being boring have made me feel i do not see the point posting on there when you guys stateside know the enjoyment of cycling on sand...

    I was up early this morning and on the coast at 5.30am... yeah thats early!, but it is mid summer here in Scotland, we have had a heatwave for over a week with little rainfall for over a month!, its ace! and i am loving it!. and if your watching TV you will know we have the most famous Golf Competition - The 146th Open here at Muirfield, Real golf on real historic Links at Muirfield... where the game began on the Scottish east coast...

    Thanks for those images, imajez. I was at Swansea University over 40 years ago, and your pictures bring back happy memories of living on the Mumbles.

    Glad to be of assistance.
    I grew up in the Mumbles on seafront and now live almost as far as you can get away from coast in UK.
    Better riding here though.

    Las Animas, Mexico. That's not me, it is my friend Mark (I'm the one taking the photos). That started out as my bike, and by the end of the trip I sold it to him.

    After reading this post yesterday, I headed out for a sandpit+trail ride. On my way to the trail, I was listening to a local newsradio station, talking about a group trying to save the local B-24 bomber plant from demolition - that had provided the UK with quite a few bombers during the war. Reminded me that I once sent a link to your blogsite to the same group a while back when you posted that historic site of a downed B-24.

    So just keep on posting what you've always done a great job of, it's appreciated in ways that go beyond just fatbiking.

    Coastkid, great post. I (and others) always appreciate your pictures and commentary. Coastal riding really is great. I need to find something soft to ride on soon.

    Some images of my first trip on my summer holiday this year. I visited Estonian north coastline on a 4 days ride. Really beautiful beaches with some more technical parts. The coastline follows the klint, so there is some stairways too. We don't have much long beaches like that in Finland, so that was really extra fun for me. Fatty likes too! Everything work's very well in Estonia, really friendly people there too, and English works just fine almost anywhere.

    I think I must have missed something, I hadn't noticed that. I don't ride on the beach myself (hate salt water on my bike), but anytime I see CKs posts I open them straightaway. Boring? Never!

    I think the growing orientation to trails is inevitable because there's a huge population who never ride over anything but a groomed surface, and they are more focused on speed and thrills rather than the appreciation of where they are. Those are the people who are currently discovering fatbikes.

    From my perspective* that's unfortunate because they will be driving the market and our bikes will evolve to meet their needs rather than those of the off-trail users.

    Still, so long as I can find a bit of bog to guddle around in, I'll be happy.



    *EDIT:

    Just to make it clear, I don't think that direction is wrong, it's just I'd prefer to see even fatter tyres rather than suspension, a wider hubgear than ever more delicate derailleurs, and so on.

    A couple from the Stevensville, MI area which is just south of St. Joesph. First is the top of a dune in Grand Mere State Park (1000 acres of rolling dunes on lake michigan) and second is just a bit south of the park at the barrier for the Cook Nuclear Power Plant. I think they wanted me to turn around???

    San Clemente surfbike ride

    I call mine a surfbike. Just a couple of pics of yesterday's ride on the beach. The tide has a huge impact on the kind of ride you have in my area. It was a relative low tide, but the absolute level never dropped very low, which kept me in the rocks and soft sand for much of the ride. But the Big Girl handled it just fine. More pics and vids on future rides.

    Smile

    Ever since I got back in to biking my mind has been set on taking a bike over to St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuge & my luck the Gov. shut down has to be going on! Well, I said to hell with and go anyhow!

    My daughter now decides she wants to go...oh well!

    Not Today!

    Indian Pass...& the Gulf of Mexico just on the other side of me.

    Made a quick trip down to the boat house & entrance to see if there are any signs of closer but saw none...did see a couple of females riding a gator before I got there.

    Since the tide was low I went to the sound ...lot of oysters shells etc.

    Then I went to the main interior trail and was surprised that it was so well maintain & with oyster shells...just what I was seeking...now my family can ride with there regular mtn bikes.

    Palmetto Heaven!
    There are quite a bit of roads that crisscross this island and I could have spent a whole day here...over 12,000 acres.

    The Island is about 9 miles long and I think there is a trail to the beach about every mile....anyway I took the one that said #2 & headed out to the beach.


    Once I got going on the beach, about halfway back to my kayak I saw a guy walking down the beach....sure enough it was a Federal Officer I'm guessing & had a gun holstered. He called me over and informed me that the island was closed...he'd ask if them girls on the gator had run into me...was real nice and asked all about my bike.


    Now I'm so ready to go back...been fishing round this island many times..always been my favorite place to put the boat in to fish or go diving!

    Just my iPhone 5, got it down low next to the track and focused it at the bottom of the picture. Then a bit if wizardry on Flickr using their filters and blurring effects

    Those are Nate not Lou tires. the center lug has a raised block in the middle where the Lou doesn't, also the lugs further out are at a sharper angle than on the Lou.

    A few from today's epic beachy. We rode as far as the eye could see, not often you cant see where you are going and where you are riding back to at all times.

    Cape San Blas Lighthouse...I used to live a couple of miles from it over on St Joseph's Bay back in the 90s. This beach is probably one of the most eroding in the country. They're planning on moving it to Port St. Joe...The Lighthouse Keepers Cottages are already on steel beams ready to pulled away.





    Looking back toward the Lighthouse from the tip of Cape San Blas



    Here's an old aerial photo..not sure when it was taken but I remember all the buildings being there when I first started coming to the Cape in the early 80's.



    The only buildings that were saved (and barely) were the Lighthouse Keepers Cottages.

    First play in the sandbox

    The third ride out for the Finke was a beach run, to test if it really would allow me to ride the beach section on day one of the Cape to Cape race.

    Turns out it does and it did...

    Thanks! Mexico Beach, Florida...near Panama City on the FL panhandle. I've never seen one so close to the shore and act like this for so long. He stayed so close to shore as he move down the beach at least a couple 100 feet.

    Strange ice behavior from the ride yesterday. An obligatory bike shot at the end to prove that it was a fat beach ride.

    Finally got on the beach after the storms Saturday. Mexico Beach, FL



    The sand was a bit softer than normal and that foam seemed to make the sand cake up on the tires.

    Clear blue sky winters day on the coast, time for some rock crawling on the infamous Carr Rocks near Seacliff...

    CK71, your posts are a good part of the reason I got a fatbike. I lived in the UK (RAF Lakenheath) for 4 years and I still miss it. I would love to make a trip over one day and have the opportunity to ride with you.

    Here is a pic I took yesterday of the beach of Gulfport, Mississippi.



    Happy biking!

    Maiden Voyage

    Picked up the Fatboy and Saturday arvo and we have a beach shack up the coast
    Went a total of 180 meters on the road before hitting the sand

    I have seen Coastkid post the miles of coast they have to ride on and it is the same here.
    West Australia has some 12,000 km of coast and none is privately owned

    No snow here, but the sand is almost as white

    Sorry about the quality of the photos, the camera was on the blink
    Loving the new bike

    Yesterday I had the best day on my Fatty since getting it! It was nearly perfect around 65F and with the tide going out. I made the trip from all the way around the tip of Crooked Island 1st time. This is on Tyndall Air Force Base between Panama City and Mexico Beach.



    Old Osprey Nest



    When I got down far enough out on the peninsula I crossed over to the sound shore.....looked like a nice control burn going on across the sound.


    Rarely is there any planes flying on Sunday but this low flying KC-135 Stratotanker (aerial refueler) came down the beach and turned right above me!

    ^^^
    I did a 7 month Kombi trip around the states in 85
    Did the full lap of Florida
    I was trying to remember one place with Sugar sand and remembered this
    morning it was Panama Beach, and now you have posted up pictures above.
    Amazing sand

    I bet that was a fun trip! I showed your pics to my wife and daughter and they both guess it was out on Cape San Blas which is another nearby beach I ride.

    Even a gloomy day at the beach beats a day on the couch any day! Today it was 70 degrees in South Mississippi.



    Found a nice trail right behind my house. You don't believe that they had me in mind when they put this sign up, do you?



    Happy riding everyone!

    Just a few pics of my latest bike ride along the Mississippi gulf coast. I am trying to get better at this whole picture thing.









    If anyone is ever visiting South Mississippi, give me a shout. I would love to take you around and have another fat biker tearing up the beaches!

    Nice shots there Duane! It's good to see more fat bikes out here. We should hook up for a ride sometime.

    Here's a couple form race point the other day.
    ...and yes there is sand under that white stuff

    New Pugs on the Twin Harbors Beaches!

    OK, I finally got out for a couple of rides. Lets see if I can figure out how to post some pics:
    Top 2 shots are on the dune top trail near Twin Harbors State Park.
    Next shot is looking NW over Half Moon Bay, with Westport, WA in the background.
    Then, my Pugs with the South Jetty at the entrance to Grays Harbor.
    Next, Pugs & kelp wad, followed by my favorite sign, looking North.
    Then, two views of some driftwood art, carved in place by a local artist.

    Whew! From start to finish, it was about a 9-mile trip. I back-tracked along the dune top trail, which is only about 1/2 mile long. And I rode around Half Moon Bay, which is where I turned around and headed back to the outer beach and pedaled into a mild headwind for the 4 miles back to my starting point, on the south end of Twin Harbors State Park at the Bonge Ave beach approach.

    Thanks! It was fun to build. My camera batteries were getting weak (forgot to bring spares, and it got stuck in "macro" mode, so I had a bunch of fuzzy shots that I didn't post. Here's one more good one, looking South on the dune top trail:

    Mark, Yes my frame is an "L."
    I love your expedition setup! Very nice! I plan to get racks and a larger frame bag, and maybe mountain panniers, and dry bags (maybe use my kayaking dry bags).

    Right now mine is just set up for day touring on my local beaches, etc.

    I am lucky to live about 1.5 km from the beach. This is a regular night ride
    Sand track on the way, that goes to a limestone tack, then on the beach, and a sand track on the way home

    how is the ride in the deep, loose sand? what is the rolling resistance like?

    reason i ask is because lewy here is in the big ring in the deep stuff so the rolling resistance must fairly nil. i've ridden ATVs in the sand and he high floatation tyres gave great traction and kept from digging down, but they have a motor and i wasn't pedaling them...

    keep the pics comin' guys, this is a great thread!

    For my 220lbs in moderately loose arroyo fill, I go for 8-9psi. In dry, soft, deep sand I have been down to 3-4psi. Resistance is there, the looser the surface the more work you do. The fats make sand riding possible vs impossible.

    I ride up a 3-4% slope arroyo in sand/gravel that is loose enough to be difficult to walk in, cranking a 32x23 (equivalent - S3X) fixed gear. It's a good workout, but I can remain seated - even for occasional pockets of sugarsand.

    Also, that big ring is a 36t and the cassette is an 11-36.

    Come to the fat side............. it's fun.

    thx!

    i'm already semi-fat (krampus) and love it. we set up a pugs for a guy and i rode it around a bit and it was just FUN! when i saw the new ice cream truck i knew that was the one for me!

    there's lots of terrain around here that is more or less unrideable on a mtb that i've been eyeballing for a fatty. can't wait to go bushwhacking, mucking, loaming, and beaching. it's not a matter of "if" i come to the fat side, but "when".

    Rode the beach, the dune top trail, and found some fun trails in the scrub pine. Spooked a Peregrine Falcon dining on a sea bird. Sunny skies, and high temp was 57 F this afternoon. I got a sunburn on my face.
    My pics won't upload, for some reason.

    I made several loops thru the scrubby Pine forest in the state park on some trails I found, and doubled back on top of the dune trail, then reverse routed, headed down to the beach and rode there, spooking a Peregrine Falcon that was dining on a seabird. Tide was getting high, and the beach narrow, so I then headed back into the Pines and made some more loops on the network of "hiking" trails. The signs said nothing about bikes, but did say, "No Horseback Riding."
    Then I rode the dune-top trail again as fast as I could in 6th gear, and then headed back down into the Pines again and rode the winding trails there as fast as I could, now that I was getting to know them. Only saw one jogger on the dune top trail, and no one in the Pines.
    Finally, after about 2 1/2 hours, my quads were burning, and the sun was going down.

    Did a beach ride the other weekend with Lewy and Whizkid, wow the high tide made it so hard to ride in the sand, but a bit further down on the finer harder packed sand it was a lot better. Fun Farley times

    Got the Fatty up the coast in its natural environment. Sunset Friday put a nice gold glow on the sand. You can see in the first photo I am spoilt with sand choices

    Had a great ride the other morning. We picked our way through the scrub in the pre dawn calm and made our way out the beach. As the sun came so did the wind, luckily it was at our backs.

    I was in Grand Haven yesterday also to do that fat bike race that was rescheduled this morning (website never updated, I called the sponsor shop), so I rode the beach instead:

    Went out to St. Joseph Peninsula State Park Sunday to get away from the spring breakers. Rode thru the interior for the 1st time and came back on the gulf side. I went to just check it out and wound up almost going to the tip traveling 11 miles round trip.



    St. Joseph Bay


    Got shady & little hilly with the scrub pines.


    About half way I started running in to these big ars puddles, some were at least a foot deep....Could tell the foot traffic stopped at the 1st one....Had it all to myself.



    Enroute to the gulf side.



    I was hoping the wind was coming more out of the north to make getting back a breeze but it seem to be 15 to 20 mph strait off the water out of the west.


    Got to be some of the biggest dunes in FL on this beach!



    This will probably be my best place to ride. I have to drive nearly 30 miles to get to the trails thru the park entrance but can kayak 1.5 miles over to the tip of the peninsula.

    Nice easy ride. Mostly sunny and around 45 degrees. All I can expect for NY.
