Mud, Mud & more Mud!

July 29, 2011

I made it to the Yukon river after riding 59 miles yesterday… the way, took me 13 hours!  I had to walk up 2 hills that took me 1 1/2 hours to walk up (each).    It was a grueling walk up both hills…..there was so much mud from it raining that even with the brakes on, the bike kept sliding back down the hill….ugh!     I hope to make it to the end of Dalton Highway by tonight.  Then, it’s about 100-120 miles to Fairbanks.
