Hey, PeestonPants! I gottta say that of all the ‘winter riding’ stuff I’ve seen here, with the possiblee exception of Mr. Big Wheels’, yours always looks like the most fun to me.
Keep yer pants dry!

Thanks Tom! I got tremendous respect for all those guys braving the elements on their steeds. We all just do the best we can. If the asphalt jungle of Anchorage/the Valley is what you got at the end of your driveway, then that's what you ride. I just happen to have really sick sh*t at the end of my driveway. No Starbucks stops on my rides. My taste in adventure also has me riding alone most times. You flatter me by putting me in the same league with Mr. BigWheel.

Peace,
Piston

Hi guys, I am in Eureka on my way to Anchorage. Riding around 300-500 miles a day and I have no heated gear. What would it be like to ride in Anchorage in 1 or 2 weeks?
