Alaska to San Francisco?

Discussion in 'rec.bicycles.rides' started by [email protected], Jan 17, 2006.

  1. I've got a couple of months free this summer and I'm looking to do
    something epic. One of my thoughts is an Alaska to San Francisco ride.
    I'm particularly interested in starting points, backroads, fireroads,
    etc.

    Any other info also appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Take a look at "The Milepost", you should be able to sample a copy at
    local book store. It has very good descriptions of roads in Alaska,
    Yukon and a few of the approach roads to the North.

    There is a good FAQ about British Columbia/Alaska cycle touring at:

    The book, "Bicycling the Pacific Coast" gives one description of the
    American Pacific coast.

    p.s. I've done many of the pieces here including Alaska Highway in '97
    and Pacific Coast in '98. These are described on my touring page:

    the north...
