    Good ride. Few little hills . Mostly level. Great scenery.
    Fishhook was a quiet. low traffic route.
    12" to 18" paved shoulders but the wide Right-of-Way clearing made visibility good.

    Little Su open water, some ice still in places on the edges. Rode up toward Hatcher Pass
    & back a mile or so, & seem to always find a road or trail to explore off the planned route
    made my ride near 30 miles.

    I ride in bright colors & have thought about a blinking rear red light,

    Think I'll start using the red blinker when on the busy roads.
    Some of the paved bike trial just end, then no choice but to get on the road.

    Most Alaska drivers have been courteous ,
    being highly visible is a good thing.

    Did 43 miles last Sunday, parks / Pittman to Shrock.... bogard .., trunk blue lupine loop.
    Pittman is a nice ride, pretty much level, little traffic. One of the better routes.

    Google maps locked me out of using bike routes, I guess I used / copied/posted to many for free
    Weird ? ?

    Not good at the G map yet. Getting better.
    Joined Goog; got maps working

    Parks, Pittman Trunk loop
    38 miles, but I dinked around on some side roads off Schrock , good scenery.
    It is one of the better level , scenic rides.

    Not sure why the "bike" part of the map program, won't use the bike trail on the newer section of trunk
    map goes to "old trunk" by 4 corners ?

    Will see if the map link works
