Topsail Island beach ride pics

(updated: Aug 15, 2013)

Topsail, Surf City, North Topsail, Topsail Beach, whatever you want to call it, it's one long fucking island that I've only been able to do the full length and back once. It's so long you can see the red Strava route from space. And no I don't Strava, just ride my fucking bike, and once in a while take a space trip. And as I'm typing this tiny black ants are crawling on my keyboard. I think they live in it. I have no idea why. Holy shit it's late, and I have work tomorrow.

These photos are from a few weeks back. It was during peak touron season, but we hit the sand early enough that there weren't many people out yet. We went to the north end and back, for a total of 26 miles or so.

SBA on his Pugsley, the bike with the fat tires that everybody stares at like a UFO, which it essentially is to them:

People were taking pictures of my bike at Wrightsville Beach a few weeks ago. We thought it was a photography class or something. But one lady said her son or nephew or someone she knows rides a bike and would want to see this. But since it's a UFO it will inexplicably become another out of focus fuzzy blob in the photo that proves nothing, only that fat bikes may or may not be real.

See ... not many people out early, just seemed like a lot of good-looking women jogging on the beach, which is unusual if you know Topsail.

Rain cloud heading out way that came upon us rather quickly. Just had to punch through it, which we did, but not before we became completely soaked.
