Because they can’t win Rider of the Week, every week.

Story by Pure Cycles February 24th, 2016

Beach Life

Every day, people all over the world live awesome lives and they’ve got the Instagram feeds to prove it. In this series, we’ll take a look at the best #purefix photographers out there and what they’re shooting that makes them special.

Today’s theme is ‘Beach Life’; the shots and snaps that make us feel all tropical inside. Kick off your shoes, dip your toes in the water, and let’s dive in!

Stephface

@StephFace and her X-Ray always deliver sandy, sun-drenched shots from the beaches in Miami. Whether it’s a solo adventure, or a picnic party with the posse, her pics always make us want to close up shop, toss on some sandals, and hit the surf!

For a more wandering exploration of the best beaches around, look no further than @baby_______b. A seemingly endless collection of beautiful palms, playas, and the people that spend their days soaking up the sun. Sprinkle in some friends that ride great bikes, and you’ve got a feed that we just can’t resist!

Giannathellama

No stranger to our Rider of the Week readers, @giannathellama lives in a world of perpetual sun, sand, and surf (or at least it feels that way). Whether she’s riding her Hotel, her Keirin Pro, or one of her other bikes, you can bet she’s heading for the water and making those of us stuck indoors really question our life choices.

JodyKei

When it comes to destination beaches, @jodykei has things figured out. Every photo adds a new beach to our bucket list, and who doesn’t love pictures of sharks, tropical waterfalls, and islands that look like they play home-base to Bond villains? With an X-Ray and a Papa in tow, the next great beach is only ever a pedal away, and she’s got the pictures to prove it!
