    Only one ice ride. After all the effort of swapping tires, rejetting and rebuilding my forks. I went one time. Then the Nenana fell apart. 8D9A4DD4-5126-4B85-AED2-9FC59D7BBACE.jpeg 1B30A20E-783C-4522-BD7F-394C8CA6162F.jpeg

    Not to worry though, the e-fatbike and sled powered many adventures this winter.

    Among the many outings on the Nenana and Jack rivers.

    A run out to the Yanert Glacier. That ride would’ve been possible on my ice bike. Totally!

    I rode up the highway and down to Broke Foot Beach and up in Panorama gravel pit. Blue skies, brown caribou, green dirt bike.

    Funny that I won’t take my Versys out with expired tags and no insurance, but ride a no-apologies dirt bike up the highway.
