Just returned from a tour in Alaska. It was a mixed sport, bike, hike and kayak. Rode five days and stayed away from the cities. Rides progressively longer, last two days at 53 miles each. Great scenery. It was my first tour and I was pleasantly surprised. The riders in the group ranged from late forties to late sixties. We did some pretty good, long climbs the last couple days, and had fierce head winds. Great Times!!
