The mountain bike is designed for off-road excursions. There is no doubt that the beach is off-road, so why not take that mountain bike to the beach? Well, there is the sand. The soft sand is not a friend of the mountain bike. You will either find yourself struggling with getting traction or cursing as you are once again picking yourself up from the wipe out you experience as you try to navigate a mountain bike through the soft sand of the beaches.

Adjust the seat. One of the biggest mistakes people make when riding a bike is keeping the seat too low. But that can hurt your knees, not to mention make your ride less efficient. As a general rule of thumb, the seat should come up to about the top of your hip bone when you’re standing to one side of it. But a better way to tell is to just get on and start pedaling, you should have a slight bend (about 30 degrees) in your knee when the pedal is at the bottom-most point in the cycle.
What do you need?
Sun protection. It’s important to keep your skin safe by applying sunscreen whenever you’re outside in the daylight. Even on cloudy days, about 70 to 80 percent of UV rays can penetrate and damage the skin, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation. Wearing sunglasses can also help protect your eyes from glare as well as swirling sand or other debris churned up by the wind.
Water. Spending time under the sun can quickly make you dehydrated, especially on warm days or if you’re sweating a lot. Most bikes have a built-in cage to hold a water bottle. Keep your bottle cool by filling it with ice before you leave.
