Beach Cruising

You can have any color you want as long as its blue!
My wife and I decided we wanted to catch a few days of warmer weather during spring break so we headed down the East Coast to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.  Its a nine hour drive from Northern Virginia but we broke the journey up with an overnight stay just of the I-95 on our way.

Our hotel in Hilton Head was right next to the beach and having eyed up the bicycle rentals a few minutes after our arrival, we decided we'd get up early the next day, rent some bikes and explore.

We were greeted at the rental desk and promptly let loose with a beach cruiser each, we headed down to the beach and began riding.  Thankfully we didn't head too far as the wind was behind us, meaning we had a fight on our hands when headed back.




After the beach we decided we wanted to head somewhere for lunch, we'd heard good things about shelter cove and its numerous restaurants to chose to head inland and hit the bike trails making our way towards Shelter cove.

The view from our lunch spot.
We made it back to the hotel after almost 16 miles and 3 hours of cruising, I think if I was a beach resident I'd need to be looking at a fat bike, but otherwise the beach cruisers and their coaster brakes made for a fun morning's ride.
