Alaskan Adventures


Pat & Kathy rode their bikes from Kotzebue in early April ( still winter in the Arctic) hoping to get to Nome via less traveled paths, and ended up coaching xc skiing in a remote village.

HOPE TO HOMER BEACH RIDE - Story of the first FatBikes in Alaska

Following the tides on a 6 day adventure ride down the coast of Alaska's Kenai Peninsula; from (near) Hope to Homer, Alaska - Pat & Kathy's 160 mile bicycle beach ride in 2005 was the first fatbike ride on a beach in Alaska. This was before the term FatBike existed.
