10 Best Surfing Campsites on the East Coast

A guide to going gritty on the Eastern Seaboard, from the Deep South to the Great White North.

If, like most surfers, you’re just an occasional outdoorsman who wants nothing more than to score great waves in this technologically charged, convenience-modified Age of Information — quite frankly, you just can’t beat a surgical strike or storm chase. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t certain benefits to going full Papillon once in a while. Camping under the stars (and bugs), illuminated by the moonlight (or lightning), with only the sound of the ocean (or storm surge) to lullaby you to sleep. Because, like a wise man once said, If it looks good when you’re checking it, you’re already too late. And if you’re already staked-out and bagged-up once it does turn on — the rumble of fresh swell stirring you awake before the sharks have even heard the breakfast bell — it’ll feel like God’s giving you your own personal, That’s what’s up.

While Geraint Thomas wannabes might tackle the Alps or Pyrenees, here are 10 less-challenging but equally scenic routes for families and newbies

It is possible to cycle all the way across south-west France, from Bordeaux on the Atlantic to Sète on the Mediterranean, following just one river and two canals. Beginners might prefer to pace themselves by cycling the second half, from Toulouse to Sète along the towpaths of the Canal du Midi. At 150 miles (240km), it is a decent distance, but is flat and can be broken up into manageable stages. The going can be a bit rough and bumpy, so consider investing in a gel saddle cover. Places to spend a night or two include the fortified city of Carcassonne, a short detour from the canal, and historic Béziers. See more at Source: 10 of the best easy cycling holidays in Europe
