Isolation Cycle 37; North Berwick East Beach And Harbour...
Onto the beach and before hand time to air down the big 5" tyres to make easier work of the real soft dry sand above the high tide line, My Surly Moonlander G is riding has 100mm wide rims and 4.8" Schwalbe Jumbo Jim tyres front and rear, they can be aired down to 3 psi! nuts eh?
The Surly Wednesday has 80mm wide rims and a 4.8" Jumbo Jim tyre up front and a 4.5" Jumbo Jim rear tyre so 6 psi in the rear on that bike, but could have aired down to 5 psi ok,
We rode 25 miles on those tyres no probs and as the day went on the comfort of the soft tyres was nice riding home a bit tired from cycling every day for over a week now,
Day of writing up this blog it`s a week to FORTH FAT 2020, sadly cancelled like everything else and here would have been a load of folks from all over the UK...
Were lucky to be able to exercise daily cycling on the coast and keep safe distances from folk, not touching anything and riding safe too - not the time for doing anything daft and risking having to go to Hospital, you wuld not be popular!,
Todays big Moon meant a real low tide and we cycled around to the harbour entrance...
