1,100 Miles by Fatbike

A repost by the Professor.

If you can’t ride, then you do the next best thing—read about riding. Or in this case, watch videos about riding. This three video series is about Mike Curiak’s unsupported 1,100 mile ride along the Iditarod Trail from Knik to Nome, Alaska. Usually one will stop at the various villages or cabins along the way to warm up, dry out, eat some moose burgers, and get some good rest. But in 2010 Curiak decided to ride the whole thing with no outside support. That means he carried all his food and gear for 24 something days and slept out every night. Pretty extreme. The stuff of legends. And that bike is so cool. He called it the IditaTour. I call it pretty awesome.

Each video is about 15 minutes long and contains video and stills. Well worth watching.
