Go Fat Tire Biking in Pacific City!
Have you tried cycling’s biggest trend yet? With their grippy, 4-inch-wide tires and stable design, fat-tire bikes make riding a blast for beginners and pros on all sorts of terrain – especially sand! A trip to the Oregon Coast with its miles of sandy beaches is the perfect spot to try fat-tire biking!
Place to Get Fat-tire Bike Rentals for Your Trip:
Safari Town Surf
Safari Town Surf in Lincoln City offers a drop off and pick up service to Pacific City and several other coastal towns for an additional fee. We recommend reserving in advance as delivery is schedule to availability and scheduling.
The friendly crew at Bike Newport in Newport will get you geared up to hit the beach on their brand-new fleet of Trek Farley fat bikes. Prefer a guided tour? Call to schedule a tour for groups of 4 or more.
Tips – Riding at low tide is recommended as the sand is hard packed and easier to traverse. Make sure to check the local tides, and always be mindful of sneaker waves!
Where to Go:
Cape Kiwanda Fat Bike Route
Try your hand at cycling on a fat tire bike right on the beach in Pacific City. Start on the sand at Cape Kiwanda and head in either direction. You’ll pass sites such as the bridge over the Nestucca River and Bob Straub State Park, where the crowds and sounds fade away and it may just be you, your bike, and the peaceful sounds of the ocean. To head north from Cape Kiwanda, you’ll have to first scale and descend the massive dune that blocks your path. If you’re up for the challenge, continue on the other side toward the town of Tierra del Mar and Sand Lake before making the return trip. Those who are really feeling ambitious may want to take on the 15-mile route between Cape Lookout and Pacific City.
