When the surf is flat what better way to explore St Ives Bay, from Hayle to Godrevy along Gwithian beach, than on a Fatman bike.
A Fatman is more fun
These bad boys are way more fun that traditional mountain bikes. Monster truck meets bike. With the ultra-wide tyres, you get miles more traction and grip than ordinary mountain bike tyres, which means they act like the Landrover of the bike world. Up and down dunes, over rocks and pebbles, across the wet sand, in the shallows or along the coastal paths – they are the ultimate all terrain pedal power cycle that is taking the bike world by storm.
The Fatman is so much fun, someone made a YouTube video at Mexico Towans.(We were way too scared to take our hands off the handlebars to do our own film).
For those that need the detail, these fellas have Shimano Tourney 7 Speed gears, rigid suspension, 26inch wheels with tyres 26″ x 4.0″. That’s a whole lot of rubber to burn.
The Fatman is the ultimate bike for the beach and coast adventures, but if you’re looking for something different we also hire bikes for Cornish country lanes, hybrids, speed demon road bikes and off-road mountain bikes to name but a few. We’re pretty sure that once you try a Fatman you won’t go back.
There are also loads of routes and terrains to explore here in West Cornwall on a bike.
