Riding local, riding abroad. Doesn't matter. "One less car" bike commuting and "Bikes Belong" advocacy, plus "I ride solo" bicycle travel. Racing is fun, but there are so many equally great reasons to ride.

Alessandro di Bertolini touring cyclist
I heard Alessandro come late into my Prince George campground on Sat night. On Sunday, as he dried out his gear, he told me he started in Dan Francisco and is hoping to reach Fairbanks in August with time to ride the Dalton Highway to Prudhoe Bay. He comes from the Dolomites in Italy. These alps are still on my September travel list for 2017, but may not happen depending on what teaching gigs I can get in the next few weeks at home. Still, what a pleasant surprise. The Dalton may be a stretch due to how quickly winter returns to Alaska, but this cyclist made it through Death Valley in June! I think he can do anything, especially as he eats Nutella, meat, for breakfast!
