First stop... Primera parada

Hi folks
After 6 days on the road we got a 2 days holidays in a nice campground in Tok,AK to do the washing, check up the bikes and catch up with the world through the Internet, we are not far from the Canadian border and we need to get food for the next week that we are going to be into wildness, in the meantime here you can see some of our pics...
see ya folks!!!
 That our host in Fairbanks thanks to you the beginning of this adventure was so nice and easy
Thanks Helena

First day just before this first pedaling that we have been thinking about for the last 3 years, and We have to say it was a heavy one we are carrying tones of stuff, the food is so heavy :) and there are no shops in distances like 200 miles and we love food unfortunately although between us food we can get in here is crap
as you can see :)
and more in beautiful places.....
that is one of our lunch brake not bad eh?
We are heading south to where the Alaska Highway starts
that could have been the last picture finishing the Alaska Highway, but we are doing the wrong way, because it will be downhill  ;) so the last mile of Alcan is our first mile

That is some of the wild life we passed by on the road (Moose and eagle)....
That is how we try to fight with some of the wildlife... 

 but these "little" one we didn't managed yet....
The ice is still melting this time of the year is called in Alaska the "break up" which means spring in Europe

the sunset  over here starts at 11pm and  lasts for over an hour, it is just unbelievable 

That does not look like one of the Edinburgh front garden doesn't it? That how most of the front gardens look like, they love to collect junck-treasures. I love it!(raul)
 Going to the toilet in Alaska is "an experience", imagine my friends from the UK 40C below 0C going for a poo
Rivers in here are hugeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee as you can see its a bit cold over here
After 40 miles cycling a straight flat road through the forest we've realized how much we love curves!!!

It sounds like a joke but some partts of Alaska are extremely dry over the year like deserts and spring comes with storms that cause huge fires
Ok Folks that is us for now xxx and hugs 


  1. Hey Travellers! Good to see you happy on the way!
    Short sleeve in Alaska, must be roasting over there :D

    Big Hugs for you.

  3. Hello! It's so nice to see the beginning of your adventure! it's sunny on photos so I think you can survive the cold, imagine rainy and windy Scotland nowadays (as Jarek said as I've been roasting in POland for 3 weeks now). I'm really sorry to hear abnout the food issues, especially for you Raul! Moose steaks or deep fried everything must not be your pair of shoes! Marta, Kasia N. from Dublin is coming to look after our cat in August, so I managed to get in touch with her (sorry for the private news...). Ok guys, see you on next set of photos, and keep taking the clothes off on them the more south you go :) Did you get in touch with Justyna in Vancouver? Are you planning to meet her? If so please send her biiig hugs! Kasia and Jarek
