    24 Hours of Light 2009

    Hey All,

    I just wanted to extend the invitation to our Alaskan neighbours, we just got the site and registration live for our 24 Hours of Light event. Please check out:

    https://www.24hoursoflight.ca/

    We usually get a good turnout from Juneau and Haines but we've had people make the long trip from Anchorage and Fairbanks as well. Hope to see some of you this summer, June 27-28.

    Any questions about the event, accomodations, or riding in Whitehorse feel free to give me a shout.








    Regards,
    Anthony

    Looks Awesome

    Great write up about Yukon riding. It's officially on the to do list this summer. Not the 24 hours thing, but definitely a trip up that way. I wonder how long that drive is.

    Drive

    If I remember correctly, it is something like 14 hours to drive from Anchorage to Whitehorse. Then again, in the middle of summer with all the tourists and a 2-lane road, it could take a tad bit longer....

    Unfortunately, the naked laps are no longer sanctioned in the race. That newspaper article generated some negative response. Not saying you won't see the odd naked lap, but it doesn't count for double anymore.

    Double laps for nudity were replaced by the "vomit comet," the pink bike shown in the last photo is an example of that bike. Last year, vomit comet laps were a fundraiser, you made a donation to ride a new Kona Africa Bike that was raffled off at the end of the race. Proceeds were used to send more of the bikes to Africa.
