Ice Road Biking
I am new to the forums but joined up for one reason in particular. I've been planning a trip to bike from Inuvik, Northwest Territories (Canada) to Tuktoyaktuk, NT (Canada) in mid April on the ice road that is made on the Mackenzie River and Arctic Ocean. Winter biking is new to me but I do bike a lot in the summer. I've had a few friends do this trip but multi-days. I'm looking at doing completing it in one day and it will be a hard day at that.
The distance is roughly 185 km all on ice. The dangers if any would be some wildlife, vehicles and of course the intensity of an arctic winter where the temps can get to -30 degrees at that time of year.
This post is for anyone who would be interested in biking it with me and a co-worker or else share information or ideas of what I need to do to prepare for such a trek.
Thanks and I'll keep this thread updated.
