I've ridden up to Alaska, the Yukon, and the NWT a half dozen times.
Remote, but not that remote. Food prices will be double or more.
And if you need lodging, be prepared to fork it out.
Eagle Plains is about halfway between Inuvik and Dawson.
South of Dawson you are rarely more than a day's ride from services.
Minimal services, not the Taj Mahal, but services.

The biggest threats to safety and sanity are mosquitoes and biting flies.
Be prepared for swarms of hundreds that follow you as you cycle.
Thus, complete cover is essential.
