Bikerafting the Lava Coast.

Post by MikeC » Fri Feb 23, 2018 9:53 am

Way back in the summer of 2011 I completed a traverse of a chunk of the Alaska Peninsula with Dave Gray, Pete Basinger, and Brian Blair.


I shared a detailed writeup and lots of pics in several chapters after returning:


One.


Two and three.


Four.


Five.


Six.


Seven.


Eight.


Nine.


Ten, eleven, twelve.


Thirteen.


(to be continued...)

I also shared an opinion on the headspace required for a traverse of this nature, along with a handful of out-takes, here: http://lacemine29.blogspot.com/2011/09/ ... t-and.html


Gear geekin' extravaganza here: http://lacemine29.blogspot.com/2012/04/ ... eekin.html


Worth mentioning with all of the above: This was 2011.  The Surly Moonlander (R.I.P.) was only a prototype, tires like Bud and Lou were still but a faraway dream, and Alpacka had not yet come out with their Cargo Fly.  Practically the dark ages!


Gear aside, it was a most memorable traverse, and a fantastic way to see a writ-large chunk of the peninsula.


Today I can finally share the full-blown video from that trip.







Enjoy!
