In Alaska, spring is always in a big hurry. Sunlight hours grow by nearly six minutes per day around the equinox, and now, our days are longer than yours (except you Fairbanks). The contrast of warm days and freezing nights make for some exceptional riding conditions. On a springtime riding binge, we claim three rides in three days, muddy bikes, and tired legs. Fatbikes are awesome.
Full ride reports soon, but first, more riding. This may be the best riding all year.
Wednesday: Meet tonight at 7:30PM on the Chester Creek Trail across from East High (Northern Lights and Bragaw). Jill Homer is in town and wants to ride bikes! Plan to ride APU and Campbell.
Thursday: Meet at The Bicycle Shop at 7PM for a post-work beach ride. We will ride to Pt. Woronzof on the trail, then on the beach to Kincaid. We should be riding into the sunset! Alternately, meet at Pt. Woronzof at 7:30PM.
Beach ride: Kincaid Park to Earthquake Park
Mountain ride: Hillside Trails to Middle Fork Loop
River ride: Butte, AK to Knik Glacier
