The biking on this tour basically follows the Richardson Highway from Fairbanks to Valdez, with two out and back detours onto the Denali and Edgerton Highways. It will be supported by a local Alaska tour company, Alaskabike (http://www.alaskabike.com/bicycle-alaska-tour.html), which has a 15 person passenger van with bike racks and a trailer for luggage and support. The bike racks can accommodate a tandem. We will cycle on the best portions of the route, which is all paved--sometimes with chip- seal. Some sections will be under varying degrees of repair. We use the van to shuttle to motels or other destinations and to provide support.
Bicycle rentals from Alaskabikes use Cannondale bicycles, which are included in the tour price. Each bike is equipped with 21 or 24 speed Shimano index shifting, smooth rolling tires, and is Alaska-equipped with fenders, rack, water bottle and day pack. Or you can bring your own bike (recommended).
The trip is rated moderate. Cycling distances are 50+ miles most days for a total of 300 miles, and a total elevation gain of 11,300 feet.
