Bicycling, Eating and Fishing at the Outer Banks

This March, Raquel and I are doing a very leisurely week, bike touring the Outer Banks of North Carolina (it’s never too early to obsess about a bike tour).  

– We are driving from Bryson City to Belhaven on Saturday and spending the night. 

– Sunday we are riding from Belhaven to Swan Quarter – catching the ferry to Ocracoke and spending a day and two nights, exploring, eating and fishing and then catching a ferry to Cedar Island in the morning.

– From Cedar Island we will ride to Beufort and spend the night (also an eating and fishing opportunity). 

– Wednesday we will ride from Beufort to Oriental, and spend 2 nights there. 

– On Friday we will ride from Oriental back to Belhaven, spend the night and drive back home on Saturday. 

I haven’t figured the whole ‘ultralight bike touring fishing’ thing out yet, but I’m open to suggestions.  A few websites that have inspired my desire to carry fishing gear to the coast are:

The Epicurean Cyclist

Backpack Flyfishing

And Tenkara USA

As well as the Tenkara Bum

    i lived south of Beaufort ….
    at Tybee Island while i worked for Palmer Johnson Yachts in Thunderbay ….just on the edge of Savannah….
    Beaufort is pretty….would loved to have lived there…
    i looked all over that part of S.C. to find a place…
    but i was missing the snow and ice and sub zero life style of arctic tundra….
    so north i went….
    other wise some of the best shrimp and scallop dinners i have ever had….and bloody mary`s….were at a little hole on Tybee Island….

    Yes not a lot of snow on the coast. There will be a few shorter local tours and camping trips before this one (as soon as the weather permits) but this is the one I look forward to every year.
