Midweek Cycle; Lower dunes west of Gullane Point


Back on the sand...
After all the harvest cycling of late and Saturdays beach ride cut short with a mechanical i was itching to get back on sand again so after work despite the high tide and howling westerly headwind i winched west to ride along the lower dunes from the Nature Reserve Point to Gullane Point,
Sheltered along to Gullane through the woods  it was nice to see a tree troll again! :)


The high tide really was a high one at 5.8 meters and into the base of the dunes at Gullane...


Down through the Reserve and out to it`s point where there was not a soul to be seen...




Deserted beach, perfect for filming it was nice to ride real low gears on the soft low dunes of fresh blown sand  at pressures below 7 psi and use a Fatbike where it is designed to really be ridden-in conditions a regular bike would never manage to make easy forward progress...



Here are some Go Pro stills from riding along the dunes...







Along to the rocks at the eastern end near Gullane Point, and the sun was gone for the day as cloud came in from the west. with a half hour to sunset i cut inland and headed back east...
