Hunting For Dirt

Less than a week away from touring the Oregon Outback route, the Fargo and I were getting hungry for the snap, crackle, pop of dirt and gravel.

After work, I headed west to let the Fargo eat, hunting for the most dirt miles I could find.

Funny how some meals just leave you longing for more...

300 miles of dirt in Oregon next week!

Josh Spice bought his first real bike in 2010. A month in, still green and lustful, he rode a 100-mile route along a snowy mountain trail, solo and self-supported, in just over 24 hours. Then he got a fatbike and found himself wide-eyed with a new sense of vision; the giant map of Alaska was his canvas, and his art the expression of adventure by bike.

Great photos Josh!  Looks to be more dirt road public land access near Fairbanks than in Anchorage, although as you know, we’ve got the in-town trail system.  The Ti Fargo is a beauty this year.  I just sent one off to Vietnam today for a month-long tour.  Have fun in Oregon!

Thanks Nicholas! Yeah, there are some options for gravel roads right outside of town, definitely something Anchorage is ‘lacking.’ :)
The Fargo is quite a joy to ride on dirt roads. I can’t imagine how it could be better. Oregon should be great! Thanks.

Have a great ride in OR, Josh, and thanks for your post. Is the Haul Road on your Fargo’s bucket list?
