    UK beaches

    I thought it's about time I tried a beach ride, so when I was looking at various beaches I found this nifty tool.

    Almost all you need in one spot.

    Tide Times for UK beaches
    As little bike as possible, as silent as possible.

    Nice find

    Just planning a trip to St Combs & Rattery Head in a few weeks time, looks lovely over there. Looks like moonlander country to me

    i have only rode ulverston sands, bardsea beach and roanhead beach all in south lake district.....the tide goes out so far you cannot see the water!

    very lonely and quiet......thats why i loved it, you and the bike and wildlife.

    sadly i have yet to ride the fatbikes on the north east coast despite living 15mins from it!

    MM you know you need a moonie for there!

    SM, from Bamburgh Castle to Dunstable Castle and back is a great days ride, or as i did it a bivvy after a few beers at the Ship Inn , Sea Houses chippy by the crazy golf is recommended

    coastrider: Northumberland Coastride, Buden Bay to Dunstburgh Castle...
