Spring Time Ride Half Moon Bay


Half Moon Bay, located on the coast of California, is known for its stunning views, charming small-town atmosphere, and outdoor activities. Springtime is an especially beautiful season to explore Half Moon Bay by bike, with the warm sun, fresh ocean air, and blooming wildflowers creating a picturesque backdrop for any ride. 

One of the most popular bike routes in Half Moon Bay is along the coast, which offers breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and rugged coastline. The route starts at the Half Moon Bay State Beach and winds its way north along the coast, passing through scenic coastal towns and beaches such as Princeton-by-the-Sea and Montara State Beach. 

Along the way, riders can stop to take in the sights and sounds of the ocean, watch surfers catch waves, or simply bask in the warm sun. The route is relatively flat, making it accessible to riders of all levels, and the roads are well-paved and safe for biking. Another popular destination along the route is Pillar Point Harbor, a charming fishing village where visitors can watch fishing boats come in and out of the harbor or sample fresh seafood at one of the local restaurants. The harbor also offers opportunities for fishing, kayaking, and paddleboarding, making it a great spot for a pitstop or a longer break. 

For those looking for a more challenging ride, the Half Moon Bay Coastside Trail is a 6.2-mile multi-use trail that offers stunning views of the coast and ocean. The trail is hilly and requires a bit more effort than the coastal route, but it's worth it for the panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and coastal cliffs. Springtime in Half Moon Bay also means wildflower season, and riders on the coast route may encounter fields of vibrant wildflowers in bloom. 

The coastal hills and valleys are dotted with poppies, lupines, and other colorful flowers, creating a truly beautiful and memorable biking experience. In conclusion, a bike ride along the coast of Half Moon Bay in spring is a must-do for any outdoor enthusiast or nature lover. With its stunning views, charming towns, and beautiful wildflowers, this bike route offers a truly unforgettable biking experience. Whether you're an experienced cyclist or a casual rider, Half Moon Bay has something to offer for everyone, making it a perfect destination for a day trip or a weekend getaway.

The DYU King 750 Fat Tire Electric Bike Is a Lot Of Bike For the Money

You can't beat the planted feeling you get aboard a fat tire ebike. It feels like you could hop off the saddle and walk away and the bike would remain standing. Good shock dampening, great grip on the road, more tire to eat up ruts and curbs.  The DYU King 750 electric bike  is a fat tire ebike that stands out for its good looks and very reasonable price tag.  28 MPH top speeds means this bike can get up hills and maintain speed with ease and I can think of 5 ebikes on the market right now that have similar features and style and sell for nearly $4,000 and you'll pay shipping.  Perhaps best of all is DYU offers a 14 day test ride policy and if you don't like what you get you can send the bike back.   

Hardware: Supermoto Wheels Explained

Supermoto wheels are a big investment, when you factor that your 2-3 year old dirt bike may have a resale value in dirt form in the $4-5K range, if that. We get calls from guys all the time who say "well, I'm not really racing or nothing, so I'm just looking for the cheapest wheels you have to convert to Supermoto". Well, the real reply there is that there really isn't a cheap way to get into Supermoto unless you're going to go Sportsman about it and ride on knobbies or some type of dual-sport tire. Quality 17-inch supermoto wheels that will last are going to set you back between $800 and $2000 depending on how deep you're going to go at this and whether you want quality and performance or just a good price. Motostrano is a full scale supermoto specialist and we've been involved in Supermoto since it's re-birth in the United States in 2002. We offer complete supermoto wheels made from the finest materials and built by experience wheel builders

Riding the Moustache Samedi 27 2X Tandem Electric Bike

I love riding with my partner and riding by tandem is one of my favorite ways to get around on a Sunday. Touring by tandem is literally twice as fun as riding solo,when you are on a bike with the one you love and the one that loves you. But tandem bikes are rare and excellent electric tandem bikes are even rarer, so I wanted to give you a fresh impression of our ride yesterday on the 2018 MOUSTACHE Samedi 27 X2 tandem . Moustache is a French company, making some of the most innovative ebikes in the world. Their tandem is no exception. This bike comes in two build types, either a smooth tire touring type or a knobby tire off-road type, but the frames, motors and other specs are pretty much the same.  I've ridden tandems for the past few years on road and off road. Yesterday we did a Meet-Up ride with other fellow ebikers in the Sonoma area. Naturally we were the only tandem riders, with others riding solo on their Haibikes, KTM, Giant, Felt and Blix bikes. Out and
