Bike v. Skis: Eagle River, Alaska

One afternoon we decided to take advantage of my husband’s day off and take a quick ski on the frozen river that is our town’s namesake.   As we were loading up, he impulsively decided to throw the new (old) bike in and ‘maybe give it a try’.


Which quickly transformed our peaceful river ski into bike-joring.  And of course a spontaneous ski v. bike race.


It’s always frostier down along the river.  When we came to a bit of open water we called a retreat (much to the relief of this one).


And headed home for dinner and a fire.
