If the bike number ever goes up again, this will be the addition ....
But for now, when my winters are still mostly consumed by dogs, I'm happy to borrow one for a day of fun in the snow!!!!
|My chosen trail for the day - the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail.|
|All this is basically within the city limits of Anchorage! Lots of other bikers, walkers, skiers, and dog walkers on the trail! Very cool.|
|My attempt at a self portrait. Didn't work too well. BTW - note the Skhoop. It worked really nice for biking over a pair of tights!|
|Downtown Anchorage is off on the right. The cliff down to the ocean is a big one, though it doesn't seem so in the picture!|
|A bit of singletrack.|
|There was a HUGE 'murder' of ravens playing in the drafts off the cliffs.|
|I stopped at the end of the Anchorage airport run way. Was cool to watch the big planes taking off.|
|In case I've never mentioned it, I LOVE ravens!|
|I spent about a half hour sitting beside this cliff watching the tide come in, ravens playing in the wind and planes taking off. It was really cool!!|
|A 'urban moose'. Her calf was actually sleeping a bit behind her too!|
|Some brave overwintering ducks!|
|My ride for the day - a Surly Pugsley|
|Loved this sign at West Chester Lagoon.|
It was just terrific to get out and sweat a bit - it's been too long since I have!
Big thanks to Erica and Billy from Arctic Cycles for loaning me the Pugsley for the day. Billie is currently biking his way to Fairbanks - from Anchorage via Nome! You can follow his adventure on Facebook
