Peddling to Nome
A gal I know just became the first woman to ride a bicycle all the way from here to Nome 1100-some miles, through the snow on the Iditarod Trail. She and her husband put on the Ultrasport Marathon ( http://www.alaskaultrasport.com/index.html and http://alaskaultrasport.blogspot.com/ ). Kathi Hirzinger-Merchant also had a nice article written about her in the Anchorage Daily News: http://www.adn.com/24hour/consumer/outdoors/story/383567.html . They have really great photos here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/23623775@N05/show/ –Can you imagine taking a mountain bike over that terrain in the deep of winter, through that terrain?? Great job, Kathi!
