    Denali Park video link

    I didn't do anything fancy with this except speed up some downhill sections to save time. This is a pretty good look at the ride from Teklanika to Polychrome Pass in Denali National Park. It runs just under 15 min but if that's too long for you, you might enjoy skipping to the last 15 sec or so for the real treat.
    Weather prediction is snow this week so it's likely that the ride was my last for the season in Denali. It was about 33F taking off but it warmed up to 40+ by the end of the ride. About 32 mi. total

    thanks for the comments. My wife laughed and said I need to not sniff while recording.
    No special tires are really needed. It's a well packed dirt road. I used to do this with my old 26" mtn bike using 1.5" "road" tires that had very little tread but in muddy conditions they could be a problem. For this ride, anticipating poor weather I rode my 29er with 1.8" Bontrager Jones tires that have a fair bit of knob to them and seem to work well in these moderately muddy conditions. The road is closed to construction Anchorage just got snow so I'm fairly sure that was the last ride of the season.

    It looked like a great place to ride but my first thought was about bears. I enjoyed the scenery and then the end with the bears let me know that I have better places to ride. I don't like dogs and a bear is a deal breaker.

    I am a wimp but I wont be bear food if I can help it.
