Biked under Brighton Pier

Biked under Brighton Pier

Tuesday was maybe the most extreme tide of the year, after the full moon close to the Equinox. The sea was out so far, I was able to ride my bike under Brighton Pier! Too bad I didn’t have my camera. You have to know Brighton to know that’s something; usually the only the solid surface at the beach are the mounds of grey pebbles. But on this evening, the sea stretched back to reveal expanses of nearly flat rideable sand, crossed with shallow impromptu drainage channels. There was a group of cyclists riding from the harbor wall, going for distance; wonder how far they got..
