Biking on Hunting Island comes in all flavors. We left the CG on the Magnolia Forest trail. It dips and curves over ancient dunes forested in Pine and Magnolia. The path is carpeted with pine cones, pine needles and quite a few pine roots.
This is as close to Mountain biking as we get.
Bikes and Horses? COOL!
We rode out the paved and abandoned “cabin road”. (The cabins are two fathoms down and 40 yards offshore now) When the road ended abruptly, we took to the hard packed sand. We are, after all, experienced, steely-eyed beach riders (see video above).
We struck off along a narrow seam of sand between the upright palms and the recently deceased forest washed up by the angry sea just beyond. Eventually this led to an impasse (or a “No Pass”.)
But a little cycle-cross got us back to an established path we walked last night and hence back to civilization.
Joanie, you look relieved…
