    Do you guys ever actually ride on the beach?

    I got a Trek Farley fat tire bike and have been doing a lot of beach riding - very peaceful
    so I'm wanting to hear from other beach riders. Best ride for me was 18 miles from Stearns wharf to Ellwood
    on the beach at Santa Barbara. I've had to start paying a lot of attention to low tides etc.
    So far the biggest problem has been rocks that force me out into the water. Messes up my bike and I had to replace some parts due to salt corrosion.

    Sometimes at low tide in the off season. We typically ride along Pleasure Island on the NC coast. Our beach bikes are old no name cruisers that get hosed off and kept heavily oiled.

    Rarely, I'm too lazy and there's to much rip rap to avoid.

    No beaches in Louisville, Ky, dawg.
    The speed is break neck, faster than a high speed dual cassette tape deck.

    Not on the sand, but on the bikepath/MUP between the sand and the parking lots along the beaches in north Orange County (California).
    Are we having fun yet?

    Occasionally. Couple of photos from Santa Barbara near the pier and a couple from near Laguna Beach.

    Of course! I'm in Charleston, SC and take mine out occasionally. I think I'm about done for the year though, too cold now.

    Hey there neighbor! I typically stick to the bike trails around here for the reasons of sand and salt, however, if I had a decent beater the beach cruise sounds appealing. Might have to start searching on craigs for said beater
