Title: Touring Alaska going south
Post by: recumbentgerry on September 10, 2020, 05:52:20 pm
  Has anyone out there successfully ridden a trike from Anchorage, AK. TO Vancouver, BC. I was wondering if that was possible or a totally insane idea. I have a trike and feel very comfortable with it with many miles under my belt.

A few have done it.  Obviously, since there are fewer trike tourists in general it won't be as many.  I would think it would not be that much different than the lower 48.  If you would feel comfortable in similar terrain, less services, etc., I would say go for it.

Search the journals over on CrazyGuyonaBike.com and you will see several journals.  There is even one if I remember correctly of a woman who rode from Florida to Alaska and back or something.
