Some cycling adventures require a completely different arsenal of travel equipment – as can be seen in this video of five friends traveling by both bike and pack-raft along the coastline of south-east Alaska.
This video was found by BicycleTouringPro.com reader, Nathan Ross, who wrote to be and said:
I found this video on Vimeo and thought it was well made and shows a unique form of touring with bikes and pack rafts. I would really like to do this kind of adventure someday.
The bike you see the people riding in this video is called the Surly Pugsley. The bike’s extra wide tires allow it to travel through snow, mud, and (in this case) soft beach sand.
What do you think about this type of bicycle travel? Is it something that interests you? Or does sticking to paved roads and bike paths seem more appealing? Leave a comment below and let me know what you think!
