The fourth installment of the ongoing Cycling to Argentina series finds Greg and Victoria nearly all the way through the Alaskan leg of their long journey south. Despite the non-stop rain throughout their time on the Denali Highway, they seem to have found the rhythm of life on the road by this point in their ride, and they’ll enter Canada as a pair of highly capable bikepackers.
As Greg tells it, locals had been recommending they ride the 135-mile Denali Highway (Alaska Route 8) from the moment they arrived in the state. The mostly unpaved road is infrequently traveled and offers stunning views of the Alaska Range and its many glaciers. Unfortunately for the pair, they happened to pedal it during Alaska’s wettest year on record, but Greg says they had their rain system dialed to the point that it didn’t dampen their spirits.
After completing the Denali Highway, Greg and Victoria headed to Delta Junction, then on to the small town of Tok, their final stop in Alaska. The next video in the series will pick up in Canada as they make their way down through the Yukon and British Columbia to the continental United States and toward Victoria’s home country of Mexico. Stay tuned for much more to come!
