So I was in Alaska recently and the amount of paved trails they have is amazing. They seem to go for miles out of every reasonably sized town. Specifically Anchorage, Seward, Homer and a lot in between.
I had a brief fantasy that maybe the Iditarod trail consisted of a lot of paved bike trails and that a group with support could esk8 the Iditarod, but turns out it now goes from Willow to Nome and the locals say that the route is mostly marshland in the summer.
I had already started working on my design for a dual motor ultra-long range mountain board when my dreams were dashed.
