Fat biking Beach riding tips:
- Try to plan your ride when the tide is lower. Look up the tides and don’t go around any headlands that may be impassable at higher tide. You want to ride safely and avoid getting trapped anywhere by the incoming tide.
- The hard packed sand is easier to pedal on than the soft sand and there is lots more hard pack at the lower tides.
- Ride against the wind at the beginning so you don’t end up 5 miles down the beach and have to go against the wind to get back.
- Mornings can often be less windy, but always check the forecast.
- Don’t ride on days when the surf is hazardous and big tidal surges are predicted. You can check the surf report on our website.
- Don’t ride in the salt water. It may be tempting, but it’s very hard on the bikes and gets sand into the drive train and cassette sprocket and that makes pedaling much more difficult. You want to keep the chain and components as free from sand as possible.
- Rinse your bike thoroughly with fresh water immediately after your beach ride. This will help get the corrosive elements off your bike.
- Be respectful of marine wildlife, and shore birds. Give them some space and stay clear of them.
- Watch out for pedestrians and share the beach with others.
- Bring your cell phone. They are great for taking photos, and if you get into any trouble you can call for help.
