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.
Along the way you’ll pass through rolling hills, wetlands, and stunning views of the coast. Just be sure to stay off private property and respect the wildlife along the way. No matter which route you take, fat tire biking at Cape Kiwanda is a great way to explore this beautiful corner of Oregon’s coast.
To get the most out of your ride, dress for the weather and terrain and make sure you have plenty of water. You’ll also want to be sure to bring a helmet, camera, spare tube, and basic repair kit in case you encounter any mechanical issues during your ride. Be aware of other cyclists and vehicles on the road, and always obey the posted speed limit. Finally, take your time, enjoy the ride, and have a great time exploring this spectacular area. Happy trails!
Have fun and be safe out there!
Remember to respect the wildlife and their habitat, stay on designated trails and public areas, leave no trace behind and pack out all of your trash, and be sure to follow the posted speed limit at all times. Have a great ride!
