    Black Artery of Alaska, bike tour video

    Last summer I did a bike tour through Alaska from north to south on a route we called The Black Artery of Alaska.

    Here is a short video of the trip.

    Looks like a great trip! What time of year did you start in order to miss the cold(er) weather?

    Awesome trip, although I kept wanting to swat the bugs away, lol.

    TwoHeadsB, we did the trip in August, which is a great time to go. The bugs are a little less, the bears are more well fed and the summer sun is still shining strong. There were a few dips below freezing but just barely.

    I guess it's all relative but the bugs were never that bad on this trip. Some places in Alaska, during the summer can be damn near unbearable. Here is a picture from a packraft trip my partner and I did two summers ago.
