    Default Alaska Cycling, my best 20 mile route so far

    Great views of the mtns, nice weather, little breeze. . Pretty much level, few short up hills to get your blood pumping.

    From Sears, Seward Meridian , L on bogard to Peck, cross Fishhook to Spruce, Spruce R on Lucile to Seldon.
    Seldon enda at bogard. Bogard to Trunk. Trunk to Blue Lupine to Hay St.

    Good wide paved shoulders almost all the way. Peck is a bit narrow but the 35 mph speed limit, low traffic & short distance, it was fine. Spruce has a goo bike trail on the So side, I used it all the way to Lucile.
    Lucile is narrow but 40 mph & no much traffic. Seldon starts out a bit narrow, straight & good view, widens up to 6' paved shoulders after crossing Fishhook.
    "Now the treat" where Seldon hooks t Bogard. "Millers Ice Cream store" . What a place for a break.
    Bogard to Trunk, good shoulders. Trunk I used the bike trail on the W side. Felt like I had my own private 10 foot wide paved trail. When on Trunk, Red light at the PWH was the only time I had to stop until I got home. 6 miles Trunk & Blue Lupine ; good bike trail all the way to Hay st.

    Will use this route often, especially this summer (Chocolate/vanilla swirl ) & some 1 handed riding LOL

    Got speedometer / trip logger mounted. Speed, time of day, trip time & distance, average speed & max speed
    + an odometer to keep track of the total miles on the bike.
    Works great.
