Pan-America bike tour starting from Prudhoe Bay.
« on: May 28, 2015, 06:01:55 am »
Hi Guys,

My name is Per and I'm from Denmark.

I have done a lot of touring, starting 1989 and the latest 2014 around Florida.

Now 2015 I would like to start from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska and go as far as possible south. My limit is time - half a year, then I must go back home.

Anyway, I would like to have a kickstart up there in the wild. It would be great to follow one, two or more guys with similar plans. I am open about the time of start. Expect arrival in Anchorage from where we could share transport to Prudhoe Bay.

Are you a part of a group with space for another single male?
Or, If anyone knows of anyone who is keen to do the route at a human pace then please get in touch.

Regards
Per

the Daltpn Highway is currently closed from mile 334-415 due to extensive flooding, with no plan to be reopened soon. you can follow the progress at: www 511.alaska.gov
sorry!
you might consider cycling across the Denali Highway, or heading down to Whittier and catching the ferry to Valdez.
enjoy,
janet

Thanks for the information Janet!
Yes I must be aware of that situation, but I think my departure will be around mid June or a bit later, so let's see.
