    Beach/Sand riding picture thread.

    It doesn`t snow very often where I live in the UK........

    BUT , being on a Peninsula means beach on three sides !

    That`s why I love my Pug.

    Recent beach ride on the Duddon Estuary , Enjoy!

    Cheers,
    Dr FG

    Hi CK,
    I was hoping you would contribute, Thanks !

    Glad you like the pix Minitrail.
    When the tide is out the sand seems to go on forever

    All sand/ beach pix welcome in this thread.

    Cheers,
    Dr FG.

    Alaska Beach Riding

    Posted somewhere else on the forum - but here again: Cook Inlet beach riding/camping with the fat bike - 28 foot tides require some planning - or a miserable few hours clining to a muddy, collapsing bluff.

    I stayed on Holy Island a few years ago when we were travelling from Newcastle to Edinburgh.
    A really magical place, best appreciated when the tide is in and the causeway is closed.
    It is so peaceful then
    It would also be good to see the great castles of Bambrugh from the beach.
    If you do this ride lots of pix please !

    Barrnem, sorry the pix take so long to load, hopefully worth the wait though.

    Anyone spot the Faux endomorph trax in the upright `Pug on the beach` shot ?
    I would love to say it was intentional, but it was just luck.

    Cheers,
    Dr FG

    Thanks Orkge.

    I took loads of pix that evening. Had to try and `capture` the moment as best I could.
    It was a very beautiful memorable ride.

    made a coastride film the other evening,its not on the soft sand as was on my new built karate monkey which iam loving,did a 45 mile loop up into my local hills on sunday,it really flys anyway the trail above the cliffs in the film is the first trail i ever rode on my 1st mtb-a raliegh maverick se way back in 1987 when i was 16 and was cycling it home having just swapped a raliegh team replica racer for it,it was one of only 2 mtbs at high school,the other was a muddy fox,my friend had a dawes ranger even earlier in 85/86 and won a xmas timetrial on it so was maybe the first mtb competition winner in scotland!,though he went on to be scottish time trial champion sevaral times(12hour)funny that 22 years later im again riding steel fully ridgid bikes after lots of fancy suspension cannondales etc.. that cost a fortune back in the day(£2000 in 1997 for a v-brake headshock super v),i say keep bicycles simple and keep them for years and years and have lots of fun and memorys on them http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YqE7-...aynext_from=QL

    cool baja pics vik
    just like isle of harris in scotland add cacti and about 40 degrees
    i was just saying about riding in saltwater/beach sand and what ive done to improve lifespan of the pug and parts on another thread (fenders)
    i saw surfers and a couple of kite buggys today on the beach,thinking about the time they take to dress,walk to beach stand about posing a bit then finally paddling out (if conditions are right) to get a 20 second surf i think riding bikes and here on the beach with a pugsley is more miles per smiles ,im buying a ocean seayak soon(a sit on short kayak) for playing around on so just gonna have to make a pug trailer to take it down to the beach on

    heres the sort of exposure my pug gets alot,its still easier to clean than red clay mud
    once again going on the pugsley where nobody will have (successfully) cycled before

    Cruising Auckland's Beaches

    My photography pales in this company but here are a few pics of winter riding in Auckland's inner harbour, the Waitemata. I haven't got out much this past month as it hasn't stopped raining.

    It's actually a sunrise. I entered a 50km race on two islands (joined by a bridge) in the middle of the Hauraki Gulf called The DUAL. It was a long day starting with an early morning ferry to get there, but lots of fun and a bit of a novelty to be riding on Rangitoto. This is a Volcano anyone visiting Auckland can't miss as it's in the middle of the harbour not far from downtown. You can see it behind the flags in the bottom picture.

    Mine has some of your countries finest in it. It doesn't get too cold in Auckland but you need a wee dram to warm you up when fixing flats in shorts ;^)

    Heh ! So THAT'S what a sunrise looks like

    Must admit to being more of a sun set kind of guy due to a chronic allergy to early mornings !

    Riding a Volcano is not a common experience here in the UK so I can fully appreciate the novelty factor

    Here's another sunset for you,
    Cheers,
    Dr FG.

    buckeye to quartsute

    Cant compete with coastkids pictures, but here are a few pictures from a trip i did last spring from Buckeye, AZ to Quartsite, AZ. the trip took 3 days and 2 nights. 125 miles in total, only half were on trails. I was self contained, but did drop some water for myself about half way before i left, good thing, there is NO water out there.

    Viva Pugsley!

    Man Jimfab, that DOES look very dry !

    I like my sand wet (which is not a prob in the UK)

    Perfect Fatbike country though but too hot for me I think.

    My, what strangley coloured sand you have in the main(E) !

    Must be alot of chlorine in your sea because I would swear it looks white

    Seems to be alot of other traffic on your beaches judging by the tread marks as well.

    seriously though, good pix and lets start a Snow/ Winter riding thread

    Great pix Mahatma

    Really like the one comming out of the sea with the water still clinging to the rear tyre

    Looks like you`ve experienced the Endomorph `bow wave ` in person

    The way that tyre cuts a channel in the water is something else.

    went a local beechride early this morning,about 30 miles round trip, 6 miles to and from the beach,i rode out to the wrecks of the WW2 Xclass midget submarines,these were tied out in the bay before the end of the war and were used for target pratice by spitfire and hurricane pilots from RAF drem nearby,we used to find loads of spent bullets shells out here when we were kids,a kind of lagoon has growen vegitation over where we found them nowadays,

    Cool Pix as always

    I went for a ride this AM and got lost !

    Luckily `found myself` again and just ended up going alot further than I planned.

    Terrain included sand/rocks/gravel/fields/road/traks.... well you get the idea.

    The Pug just does it ALL so well

    Hey Bearbait, thanks for you excellent contribution

    I must admit, I love the look of Alaska beaches

    The hand,paw & endo print is a classic shot.

    The pack raft looks ideal for the Cook Inlets tides. Did you paddle to Seldovia too?

    ha! ideal? are you kidding me!
    Dylan and Bjorn Olsen went from Homer to Seldovia earlier this summer with pugsleys and packrafts, I missed that one. I think it was 4 days, good riding and lots of ocean.

    I'll finish the lost coast video eventually, the footage is too good not to.

    Hey MT ,

    great beach ride

    Fatbikes do `eat it up` but it can be a `bucking broncho ride`

    Have you considered the Mav SC32 up front?

    It really does make a difference !

    Looking forward to more of your Pix .

    Cheers,
    Dr FG.

    Had a friend down here in Australia who rode 10 deserts, 7000 odd km, sand dunes & towed a custom fat tyre trailer. Two different trailers shown as one snapped. Can read his increadible story in link below. Very inspiring guy.

    when is surly going to make a fat tire big dummy? That would make more sense to me than a trailer. Certainly a crazy trip though!

    Ward, I've done that, have a hunt around under the pics of your bike, or something like that, there are some pics of it there.

    You won`t regret getting some front bounce MT, it really does help

    The blocks are `tank traps` from WW2.

    They were put in place to prevent tanks and large vehicles getting off the beaches if there was a sea borne invasion.

    Cheers,
    Dr FG

    mini trail the blocks are WW2 anti tank blocks, if `ze germans` had won the battle of britain then we would have proberly been invaded so coastal defences were built to slow down an invasion force until the home gaurd and RAF were scrambled,there was also posts out in the flat sand bays to stop gliders landing and machine gun pill boxes,i did some film at them yest which will go on my blog by tomorrow,
    heres one with the date written on it by the soilder who proberly made it..



    heres an intresting website of wartime here in east lothian https://www.eastlothianatwar.co.uk/

    anyway thanks to the supermarine spitfire it all wasnt needed

    im having a week (and 2 wknds) riding pugs mainly at home around the coast, but hope to do a mini road trip up to NW scotland to sandwood bay, 6 hour/285 mile drive end to end of scotland (s.e to s.w. corner) leave midnight drive up in car with pugsley-spend the day then head back again in the evening,sandwood bay is the most remote and said scenic beach in scotland-accessable by a rough 4 mile track..., i went there back in 2001 on a motorbike,its an amazing place,beach is 2 miles long between cliffs with a sea stack and dunes inland, heres a really cool film at sandwood bay, the music is the exellent scottish band `the beta band` i like this film,esp at 5.00mins!!, but i will do my own film.., enjoy...,http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7uMIbp9tRKo

    Great pics there folks!

    There are some fun pics of steel frames riding on the beach. I'm curious what, if anything, you guys do to prevent your frames and parts from rusting.

    Cheers,

    just spray them inside with a frame preserver/wax then go ride..., dont worry about the rust.., its a cro moly not mild steel frameset so will take years to rust through,buy the time it does you will be onto another fatbike/pugsley build anyway so dont worry about it...,just get out there,get your moneys worth and enjoy...,

    The biggest advance I had with the endomorphs, were on the parts we ride from the seafront to the firm sand and back.
    It's also big fun to see all the riders walking with their ultra light, high-tech, carbon frame, expensive bikes

    On the hard parts of the beach I had the advance of a 29er.

    I started back in the 900 and higher group and finished as 516.

    Next race please

    With no mountains in the Netherlands, racing on the beach is very popular.
    The are all open races. You donít to be a member or something.
    Just bring a bike and a helmet.

    Pro riders use it for there wintertraining.

    This was the Rabobank Beach Challenge in my home town Scheveningen.
    http://www.interimsport.nl/beachchallenge/

    Other beach race in the Netherlands and Belgium.

    well done tommy
    thats the first beach race ive heard of and the pug would be the way to go!,
    they used to do sand racing on ovals on motorbikes until the mid 1960s and stockcar racing on the beaches until the early 1970s here in the UK but i never knew of any bicycle races on sand,but the netherlands is the embraced homeland of the bicycle and being coastal it makes sense...im well jealous!!!!!!, will just have to go a solo beachride tomorrow then! (bottom lip out,,,)

    Broken lobster traps. I hate seeing these things, because every time one is lost at sea it just keeps killing and killing until it's smashed or washed ashore. One creature goes in for the bait, gets trapped and dies and another comes along to eat it, etc...


    No motorvehicles allowed.


    Local beach gravel. Sedimentary red sandstone (iron oxide) and glacial river gravel.


    Sponge Bob?!!


    A barnacle and some young mussels growing inside a piece of driftwood.


    It was a quick ride so I picked a landmark to pedal to before turning around.


    It isn't just a landmark to me. I found tracks all around this dead tree; coyote, fox, seagull, crow, mink, raccoon, sparrow, sandpiper. Everyone goes out of their way to check out what's new at the tree. It must be the local rest stop.


    I'll update with more pics as I get them. We're in for a few days of sloppy rain, but after that I'm going past the area where I took these photos to the mouth of the bay. I'll snap some photos of Pugs with the enormous dunes. Until then, keep it fat.
    I'm covered in beer.

    Thanks coastkid71, MiniTrail. My beach is on the north Shore of Canada's smallest province. We're in the Gulf of St. Lawrence which is shallow, warm, and fairly well protected from the deep, cold Atlantic. Great swimming in the summer!

    Great Pix Clong

    Looks like you will have lots of great places to go on your bike judging by the map you attatched.
    Looks like a really interesting part of the world

    Hey CK,
    here in Cumbria if it rains any more I may have to try and get SPD WELLIES

    Is that a nuclear power station in your Pix ? We have lots of those in this part of the world too

    My Pug will soon be back on the road(aka beach) as the new rear brake caliper is now here.

    Cheers, Dr FG

    A day at the beach, Kodiak Alaska style.

    It was sunny and cold in town, so we headed out to an eastern cape to ride but found fog and low clouds when we got there. Oh well. You can see the sun shining inland:



    The beach is mostly backed by low bluffs and meadows, but rocky outcrops make it narrower in places:



    Barny stops to watch the surge:







    There are a lot of these guys to negotiate on the beach:



    They mostly get out of the way:

    The sand is slate-colored, because it comes from... wait for it.... slate! So yeah, sort of a dark gray. We do have a few white sand beaches of Katmai ash, but mostly the sand and rock are dark.

    I've chased buffalo for miles down trails when they refuse to step off the trail and let me by. They just keep running ahead of me seemingly for ever.

    Wow! Great shots. Looks like there's some fun exploring to be had. Do you have to ride the low tides or is there beach access all day? Cool seeing the bison too.

    A good long stretch of the beach is rideable at any stage of the tide, but firmer and faster sand gets exposed once the tide goes out a ways. The stuff high on the beach is very soft and not a lot of fun to churn through. If it freezes, then things are looking better, though the constant buffalo traffic tends to chop it up. There are a few capes and outcrops to ride around and some only require a medium height tide to round, though some require a minus tide. It's no problem just going up and over the bluff blocking beach passage though. Lots of buffalo trails.

    If we get some nice hard snow down low, this would be an amazing area to snowbike. The valley that comes down to the coast where we turned around is incredibly beautiful and riding up that would be an absolute hoot.

    I have some hundie rims I intend to build up soonish. That should open a few more doors.

    Snow on the Beach!!

    It's snows in The Hague.
    More than 10cm

    Thatís unique as we have the "warm" North sea next door.
    So more unique is snow on the beach!!

    Sorry, No bisons or British WW2 mini subs on this beach but a big snowman

    It's Lake Ontario and the bluffs themselves are off limits for a good reason. Not real stable.
    About 20 miles due north of you is some of the best fresh water sand available. Check out Sandbanks Beach Provincial Park in Prince Edward County. I used to take a 12' aluminum boat with a 5hp motor from there to Rochester in about an hour.

    I grew up there but have since moved to the Wet Coast (not a spelling mistake). I don't ride a fat bike but I'm thinking about it. I have more beach here than anywhere else I've ever been. All flat rock solid sand.

    All the shore in Prince Edward County that isn't sand is limestone ledges & is perfect for trials. I never rode the sand but I used to ride trials on the ledges in the 60's on my old CCM.

    No, CCM (Canadian Cycle & Motor) bicycles. Could be the same company? I know they made motorbikes for WWII. I think all they make now is hockey equipment.

    I've been riding bicycles off road since way before there were "mountain bikes". We rode what we had. In the 60's, bicycles were pretty tough machines. In my old stomping grounds, paved roads were just coming into vogue.

    The CCM Mustang (it's a chopper) we used for BMX style riding.

    We had an old fellow who made purpose built off road bikes. Oversized frames and big balloon whitewall tires like the cruisers now. He'd add gussets and build springer forks. This was in the late 50's and early 60's. I wish I could find an old Henley Bicycle just to show to the "Gary Fisher is God" club.

    I wanted to return to fraser Island for some terrific sand riding, but weather put paid to this. ... so I settled for a short ride on 4WD tracks in the northern reaches of Cooloola NP. Here are a few photos

    rottendan, those are great shots of Sandy Neck & Great Island. I grew up in E. Orleans, and used to ride my '83 DB MTB from Nauset Beach parking lot all the way to the end of South Beach in Chatham regularly, on what used to be a 6 mile ride (in the "lower sand" with tires down to 12psi) ...things are so much different now (2 breaks etc), including no more beach cabins out there...sad to see them go, many memories. I HAVE to get a FAT bike for when I visit my parents on the Cape, oh how awesome would it be to ride anywhere (not be forced to stay in "lower sand").

    Duddon Estury Beach Ride 11th March 2010

    The day dawned beautiful cold and bright.........

    My Pug has recovered from it`s braking woes and was ready for some serious beach action

    I`ve made a few small changes to the previous set up:-

    1. Avid BB7 mechanical brakes after the sea ate the pistons in my Hayes 9`s.

    2.Front mudguard has been replaced by a Zefal Croozer which I found purely by accident in my LBS. It`s massively wide !

    http://www.zefal.com/zefal/produit.php?key=237301

    3. Hopey steering damper. I was lucky enough to get this of Ebay for a good price, but have only recently fitted it.
    Initial impressions are VERY GOOD ! It drastically reduces the amount of front steering input needed on soft mud,soft sand,ruts and shingle.
    At times the back of the bike has been writhing around like a snake in a sack, whilst the front remains serenely untroubled

    http://www.hopey.org/default2.php

    Anyway, back to the ride.

    Here are a selection from the 80+ pix taken today.

    I rode from home to Sandscale Haws nature reserve, up the beach to Askam where I rode along Askam Pier .

    This is the remnant of the `slag bank` from the old iron works. It looks like the surface of the moon and is a fun ride with great views.

    http://www.duddon-estuary.org.uk/pdf...ry_Booklet.pdf

    Next down on the beach again, past the fishing boats and on across the sands to Dunnerholme which is a large Limestone outcrop topped with a golf course !

    http://www.thedunnerholmegolfclub.co.uk/

    The sand seems to go on forever, it ranges from smooth and firm through corrugated to wet and very sticky !

    When you look at some of the Pix you can see why I went with an Alfine in the end

    Anyway, enough talk, here are the Pix, enjoy !

    It is the Lake District CK.

    You can see Scafell (the tallest one), Coniston Old Man and even Fairfield Horseshoe in the far distance at Ambleside.

    It does make for a spectacular backdrop and it never looks the same twice !

    The nearer smooth longer hill across the Estuary is Black Combe which is just a few feet short of true mountain status.

    This :- http://www.hopey.org/default2.php

    It fits inside the steerer tube and connects to a baseplate which is fitted under the top cup of the headset.

    I believe that they are used in Motor cross, but this is a mountain bike specific item.

    The aim is to reduce the tendancy to over correct your steering in rough terrain, or ( in the case of a Fatbike) the self steering tendancies of the Endomorph tyre !

    INCREDIBLE PICTURES!!!...It's a real Blessing having the means to access such beautiful remote areas( THANK YOU JESUS for creating such a beautiful Planet for us ). I can't wait until I take delivery of my new Hanebrink Extreme Terrain next week, then I'll be able to ride the beaches again. My first one I had twelve yearsago was able to traverse sand, mud and snow like it was pavement. It would be cool to catch up with some Pugsly owners, we could show off for folks who have regular sized tires(no insult intended...I have and ride one of those also, just on different terrain; ie technical single track and such). We could see who can see which bike can go the furthest in the deep sand...

    Here is some info about the big gun.
    Battery 519

    It has been renovated as a museum now, hence the glass windows.

    I enjoyed the slideshow.

    They are some serious bunkers. We have some on our coast too, but not on that scale and they are not being preserved.

    Yea, they were a serious part of our coastal defense during WWII. After the war, the land slowly was given over to the state for a state park. The Navy still used areas till 80s. The park is about a 15 minute drive from my house. Can't wait to go there more this summer.

    Hey aljee,
    welcome to the beach club

    riding a Pug on the sand is an amazing experience

    You don`t realise HOW GOOD until you try it with 'normal' tyres and end up sinking and sliding all over the place.

    The sand does get everywhere and it will (over time) EAT parts of the Pug.......

    BUT it IS worth it for the shear fun and smiles that you will enjoy.

    Cheers,
    Dr FG

    thanks Doc.
    glad to be here.
    i understood at the time of building that some parts will fail faster than on other bikes, that's kinda the whole point of this bike is to go places you can't take other bikes, regardless of what will happen to it.
    i built it with all the good intentions of destroying it (or destroying myself, which ever comes first) and i won't stop till i do. it's quickly become my number 1. i have even been commuting on it most of the time, till i get it all dialed in perfect.

    B & T, I'm not sure if I missed it but are you getting the electric version. Do they still sell the regular pedal version? I checked out their site but only the electric version is posted. I love to get one but might have to sell my Triumph in order to afford it.<input id="gwProxy" type="hidden"><!--Session data--><input onclick="jsCall();" id="jsProxy" type="hidden">

    Another sunny day in coastal Alaska accompanied by minus tides called for a beach ride. Spring is trying to assert itself, though temps are still a bit cool.

    We started from just north of a cape marking one of the eastern-most points on Kodiak Island and rode north on the wide sand beach. Other than critter tracks (Sitka black-tail deer, fox, buffalo, etc) and some kelp, the beach was totally unmarked.





    There are a few shallow creeks cutting the beach to cross.



    The Emerald Isle won't green up for a few more weeks, but spring shoots were in evidence.





    A series of small capes break the beach into sections with easily negotiated boulder fields. Easy at low tides, that is.







    We got to the Sacramento River and had lunch. This river cuts through the beach at the northern exent of the sandy coastline. North of this point are uninterrupted steep cliffs for miles.









    A small ranch borders the beach and livestock roam the hills freely. These horses seemed especially thankful for a warm spring day.



    On our way back we decided to ride all the way over and around the cape we started near. This required us to leave the beach and ride the meadows above the cliffs. There are plenty of buffalo trails to follow.











    We are in the middle of the California gray whale migration right now and all along the coast hundreds of spouts dotted the ocean. In the water below the bluffs, harbor seals played in the shallows.







    An eagle prepares to build its nest in the usual spot.



    It was a good day.

    Kasilof Alaska Beach Ride

    I took the 9 Zero 7 for its first beach ride today rode about 10 miles on the beach south of Kasilof today weather was perfect little wind and the Cook Inlet was as flat as a mirror today. Alaska does it get any better than this? Love the Kodiak pictures going to have to venture down there and put some fat tracks on the beach there too! Well of to put the Zero in the snow one more time before it's gone Monday will post pics after that trip too.
