beach bike...

the beach bike...
it shocks me that there is no children's beach bike
maybe this is the answer to my beach comber's dream
which is a funny dream
because I am more into the mountains than the sea

yet... I can not help but think that there needs to be a small light weight fat tire bicycle that is moderately salt deterioration resistant machine
a small bike for kids so that kids could ride along side their parents as their parent's run
it would work on the hard packed sand

maybe shaft driven or a plastic chain
one speed... slow... so that it does not become a menace to the other people on the beach

the bike would have wide handlebars and maybe one of those handles on the back so that a parent could push the bike when the child gets tired of pedaling

not sure if the tires would be a hard plastic or a durable inflatable rubber compound
this would be a great rental option
and for those that are local to the beach ownership may be an option

solid idea. now finding some venture capital could be the tricky part.

by the way, no bikes at 1 a.m. other than my own. I should work on putting the Ol' C-Dale in the frame more often.
