Fatbike – A Winter’s Day at Pirate’s Cove

Fatbike – A Winter’s Day at Pirate’s Cove

Every time that I leave Long Island on the Port Jefferson-Bridgeport ferry, the boat slips out of the harbor passing a cove to the east. This area, a part of McCallister County Park, is known locally as Pirate’s Cove. It is about a 2.5 mile walk from the middle of the town of Port Jefferson along the shoreline. A walk which I’ve never taken.

On a cold January day I pedaled out of town to get a look at the place that I’d only ever seen from the water.

Having the GoPro mounted on my handlebars snapping away in photo-mode, I was able to get some lovely shots of just how bright and blue the winter sky was.

Do you find that your rides are often punctuated by a particular scene or maybe scenery? I immediately fell in love with these big, water rounded stones that were parked in an otherwise sandy part of the cove.

It was like someone opened a big bag of M&Ms too quickly and they all went flying everywhere.

I’ll try not to type it too loudly, but you know – I think that Fatty here is as lovely a subject as the Triumph. Just don’t tell Tiger that I said so.

  1. One of these days I need to try one of the fat tire bikes. They look too fun…

    Beautiful photos and I agree that the new bike is at least as picturesque as the Tiger (or Ural!).
