Winter Bike Training in Alaska

Spent last week up in Alaska with Bill and Kathi Merchant from Alaska Ultrasport attending their winter bike training camp. The camp was a great learning experience and gave me a chance to test out my gear for the big race in March.

We arrived in Anchorage on Christmas day and spent the first couple of days doing last minute gear updates and renting our Surly Pugs from Arctic Cycles.

The next 5 days we spent near Flathorn Lake riding sections of the Iditarod trail, learning about the bikes and how to keep yourself warm in the icy Alaskan temps.
