The one day winter backcountry snowbike event in Willow this past weekend was a great success. The weather was sunny, but stayed at a chilly zero degrees.We did two rides after the inital interduction to winter biking. Thanks to Billy with Arctic Cycles there were plenty of fattired bikes available. At one time we counted 30 fat wheeled bikes outside the Willow community Center. Thanks to Pat Owens with Vmbah for organising such a great event.
Thanks to the Willow community for the use of their comunity center and WTC for awesome trails! Everyone had a great smile in this winter wonderland and good winter riding. More pictures here on Facebook
I own a wilderness guiding/event promotion company called Alaska Ultra Sport. We organize winter and summer adventures for people from all over the world. In February we organize the Iditarod Trail Invitational, the world's longest winter ultra marathon.
When I am not guiding or racing I spend my time mountain biking or sea-kayaking on long multi day expeditions.
