My friend George was really the person who lit the fire in me to get a fatbike. Seeing his ride pushed me over the edge to buy a bicycle. It’s probably no surprise then that he’s the person that I have been riding with most often. He’s a good sport, the adventurous type and seems to be up for anything.
Since neither one of us had really spent any time there before, we made a plan to check out Caumsett State Park in Lloyd Harbor.
Prior to our fatbike ride, my only 2 visits to Caumsett State Park were for running events. I had never even ventured off of the paved path. When George and I rolled along the dirt road towards the beach it was really eye opening to see how big and wooded the park actually is. A great surprise. The park is diverse. It has beach front, trails, paved paths, dirt roads… a little of everything.
I love having the GoPro clicking away on my handlebars. It’s awesome to come home and see what it captured along the way.
There is always some new-to-me beautiful thing, some unexpected site with each trip on the fatbike. It keeps driving home the idea that there is so little that I know about the world and about my surroundings. The only right thing to do would be to keep getting out there and soaking it all in. It’s would be a cryin’ shame to waste the beauty.
While we were pedaling around on the beach we spotted this fatty basking on a rock.
Along the beachfront by the eroding cliffs, there were stripes of water that trickled down and worked their way towards the Sound. These muddy patches were like ice! I came very close to wiping out which of course would have been hysterical 😀
The mud was very clay-like and caked up on our tires very quickly. Looks delicious, doesn’t it?
These two look like they’re in love. Long walks on the beach, sunsets… I wonder if 9 months they’ll be expecting a tricycle?
