Boxing Day Fatbike Riding in Calverton

Boxing Day Fatbike Riding in Calverton

Because we’re new to trail riding on our bicycles, Kenny and I have kind of decided to give each local trail a whirl. This past Friday, we brought our fatbikes to Calverton for the first time.

The main trail loop is about 8 miles and is mostly flat. There are a few single diamond loops off of the main trail that had a little climb and some logs to traverse that tack on another mile or so.

Overall the ride is generally flat and wiggly. A more aggressive mountain biker might think it was on the dull side but for me? It was a lot of fun. I’m just happy to be out enjoying the beautiful winter light on my bicycle.

The terrain was dry which was surprising considering how much rain we’d had over the last week. You couldn’t have asked for nicer weather in December here in New York. It was in low 50’s!

Apparently I must’ve knocked into the GoPro on my handlebars when we rode the Rollercoaster Loop. Lucky you, you get to seem my boobs. And my nostrils. Sexytime!

Today was Kenny’s maiden voyage on his sweet new Salsa Beargrease. I thought for sure that he was going to go with a mountain bike but no, he surprised me by going fat.

I wasn’t sure how hard it was going to be pedaling on the shore today. The wind was really blowing with gusts up around 40mph. But I guess it was mostly at our back. Kenny, George and I rode to Ocean Beach on Fire Island and had some lunch at CJs without too much of an effort.

For the return trip we cruised through the towns on the sand roads. We saw lots of deer moseying around. They’re so darn cute.

After picking our way through some puddles we stopped at the lighthouse so I could grab a few postcards.

It was an excellent winter beach ride.
