Cordova - Chitna: possible on a bike?

Anyone know if this old road/RR grade is at all passable, or impossible? Would I need a raft, a winch, and a chain saw? Was thinking of giving it a shot on the WR this summer if its even feasible, but its probably not I'm guessing.

No bridge over a very, very large river in a couple of places. Might be almost doable with an actual dirt bike and some raft building skills, but would not be even close to easy, if even possible. Bring a Spot tracker.

Thanks for the link. Last summer would have been the time to try it for sure. Sounds like it could be multi-summer, miserable and fun adventure. Would for sure involve lots of logistics, gear/fuel caches.

I've got an idea for a minimalist raft that would float a person and a dirt bike, but its a little sketchy and I haven't tried it out yet.

I'll try to borrow and airplane and fly it and see if its even possible.

This summer is supposedly going to be dry and hot.

That means that it will start raining next week and won't stop until it turns to snow in October.
