We arrived in Buckland, Alaska by FatBike (the first people to ever ride bikes there) and it was -50 degrees below zero and dropping fast, getting dark, the streets were deserted, except for the howling dogs and we didn't know what to do next.
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.
