Things to Understand

This is mostly a paved road ride, perfect for larger adventure bikes. There are some long section of dirt highway but they are all graded and have large truck running on them too.

I have structured this ride to be more scenic then tough riding, while there are some long days, most will allow you plenty of time to enjoy yourself. This is more about exploring then riding.

The weather can change quickly so you need to carry full gear with you everyday just in case.

You need to carry and use bug spray with DEET. Bugs can be bad, but if you use DEET it will not be a problem.

Buy the GPS Card and Rider Maps:

You can order a custom GPS Alaska By Adventure Bike microSD Card for your Garmin GPS and a complete set of printed maps. These maps are designed in combination and match the microSD card See the choices below:

Notes: I suggest you plan and order early. Normally I ship within a week. But sometimes I run out and it can take me several weeks to get new cards and maps. And sometimes I am out riding and building new adventures so that can be hard too. I list the Option for 2 SD cards because many riders like to carry a backup card or a cheap backup GPS in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
