    Riding in Alaska

    I'm planning on moving to Alaska next year and I was wondering how the mountain biking scene is up there. Is it a really short season because of snow? And are there good trails?

    Thanks

    Taking a tip from Siu Blue Wind, I too am typing a lengthy passage of text down here to demonstrate the enormous amount of space available should one wish to use it-- in sharp contrast to the avatar text above this part.

    You've just mentioned a state which is about half the size of the continental US. *Where* in Alaska are you moving?

    Tons of riding. If around Anchorage, Hillside, Kinkade park, Powerline Pass, on and on. In the Mat Su Valley, Bradley Kepler lakes area, Hatcher's Pass. Make sure you go Johnson Pass out towards Hope/Seward area. It's the most beautiful ride I have ever been on.

    I hear Fairbanks has some really good riding. Do a search on the bicycle clubs in Alaska. We like to ride all winter, so the seasons are up to you on how long they last.

    More like "almost the size of the continental US"
