Motorcycling in Alaska

Q: I am thinking of riding my motorcycle up and through Alaska this summer. What condition will the Alcan highway be in? What do I need to know about the whole trip?

A: The best place to get information about the Alcan highway is a mile-by-mile guide to Alaska’s roads and highways called the Milepost. This will give you a better idea of what to expect on the Alcan highway. Once you get into Alaska the roads are not too bad for motorcycles. I have ridden all over the state on a motorcycle – there are some wonderful scenic rides all throughout the state. If you are worried about driving the Alcan highway you could take the Alaska Marine Highway Ferry system. That would allow you to ride within Alaska and avoid any poor conditions on the Alcan Highway.
