Cyclists may enjoy following Jim and his group on this challenging bicycle ride to the North. The trip took place some decades ago (dates not given), so it's not a book to learn about current road conditions and services. Rather you get to experience Jim's physical and psychological feelings--the highs and lows--of a long adventurous journey. Jim was new to cycling on this trip, but that didn't stop him from meeting each day's difficulties and reaching his goal in Alaska.
