Rode Campbell Creek and Far North Bicentennial Park trails this morning with Jim Jr. (see picture). It is cold in the morning. Have to wear a hat under my helmet. Did twelve miles. Stopped at Golden Donuts and had coffee and of course donuts. Saw three more moose. My count is at 6 now. Started putting the "BOB" (trailer) together. It is not a big job but I'll finish it tomorrow. On Saturday I leave with Jim Jr. for Fairbanks and start my adventure on Sunday.
WHAT AM I DOING?
I must say that this is an adventure. I came to Alaska to ride my bike and I am building a deck. The new adventure begins on June 3. I will ride to Girdwood, Alaska,which is about 36 miles from Anchorage. On June 4 I will ride to Whittier, Alaska, which is about 24 miles from Girdwood. At Whittier I have to wait for Jim Jr. to drive me through the tunnel. There is only one road into Whittier and it goes through a tunnel. No bikes, no walking through the tunnel. In Whittier I will catch the ferry to Bellingham, Washington. I will spend five nights on the ferry between Whittier and Bellingham. From Bellingham I plan to ride my bike to Saint Paul, Minnesota. I will take a route mapped out by Adventure Cycling Association and I will use their maps. On my travels I will update this blog whenever possible.
