Triple F ♦ Congo Lagoon


Hil across Congo Lagoon copy

Ken sent us a photo of his partner Hilary wading across Congo Lagoon with her 9:zero:7 fattie and added “Awesome autumn riding on south coast New South Wales Australia”.  Ken also shared – “We have spectacular beaches by the dozen over here just begging to be fizzed by fat rubber. Almost all to ourselves, with occasional fisherman and surfer, heads turning and a ‘hey, nice tyres/bike/whaaat?’ We’re the only known fat bikers down here, but not for long we think. We’re running Rohloff hubs to make hassle free riding in the sand and salt, but still need to figure out how to get across the deeper lagoons and creeks. Our Next big trip – Fraser Island off the Queensland coast – the biggest sand island in the world!”

      Thanks Kedan, that’s some serious sand at Stockton. How far north can you get? One day…….maybe when the first Stockton Fatbike Sand Surfari gets organised.

        You can ride the whole beach — it is very soft at the Stockton end though ,and very taxing. I have been having a lot of fun up around Crescent Head and Hat Head — the dunes are much firmer at Hungry Head ( which is in the middle) ,and the beaches are more pleasant to ride along

    Sounds like you are getting to know your new ‘trails’ up there. Same here – one beach is definitely not the same as the next . Aah the new skills of reading the sand and following the tides. We’ve had some big swells down here this winter and it has moved the sand around a lot, and dumped piles of seaweed in spots. All part of the mix.
    We’re waiting for the warmer weather for some overnight bikepacking rides – blowup dingy on the back for crossing the inlets.
