The ultimate view warrants the ultimate rugged explorer pose! Thanks again for showing us your sexy nether regions Canada!

Cycle the Yukon... Do it now! In 1 week we saw 2 grizzlies, several dal sheep, 1 jaw dropping lake, a few fantastic cycle tourers, a few thousand massive RV's (but we won't talk about them) and just endless gorgeous roads. We're in love... Move us here now (we even have flags)! #bicycle #bicycletouring #worldbybike #yukon #canada #discovertheworld #pedalforever #travel #travelphotography #travelgram #adventurethatislife #adventuretime #adventure #mainstreammsx #bikewander #outdoors #picoftheday #live

We've reached the mighty Yukon! Although we were devastated to discover they have the same national bird as Alaska... Bloody mozzies!! Luckily Canada Day made up for it!

Sometimes in the most barren places you find the most life! (Like two sweaty Aussies). The Alaskan tundra was unbelievably beautiful and this camp spot (just a stone's throw from the Tooluk Lake Research centre) was no exception! It made the pain of the infamous Dalton highway absolutely worth it!

After 13 days, 8000 metres, 1 snapped chain, 1 grizzly bear, several muskox, many, many tantrums, several saddle sores and three days of snow and hail we have finished the Dalton Highway! It was tough... Proper get off your bike and throw yourself on the ground tough... But wow it was amazing! Needless to say that first shower in 16 days in Fairbanks was heavenly!

You know the scenery's good when you find yourself grinning like a lunatic on a steep climb! The short and sharp Atigun Pass in the Brooks Range neatly divides the tundra from forest in the Alaskan Arctic and it rates pretty high on my "bloody beautiful rides" list!

After 6 days in the Arctic we're still in awe! It's not even the fact that we cycled past a grizzly, the fact that the truckers frequently pull over to offer encouragement or chocolate bars or even the 24 hour sun that plates up a kaleidoscope of colours. In a nut shell it's the life and sheer beauty of the tundra that makes you feel like an explorer on the frontier. We're now at the half way point (ironically called Coldfoot) and while we're absolutely shagged we're so epically stoked to be here on the Dalton highway.

Day one on the Dalton highway... It started with this... And ended 60km later with an invite into an oil drill worker's camp for coffee that turned into dinner and a bed. Minds blown!! Alaska you are wonderful!

And we're here... The furthest North we'll ever go! Just a stone's throw from the Arctic Ocean at Prudhoe Bay (70.2 ° North). After spending almost 4 days hitching Alaska's infamous Dalton Highway we arrived at midnight and camped just off the soggy tundra in brutal icy conditions (our brilliant Nemo tent held up though). From here it's 800km back to Fairbanks through some pretty epic scenery!

Hitching is tougher than it looks! Especially when your plan is to hitch 800 km to the arctic ocean of Alaska for the ultimate start of the ultimate American cycling adventure! Let's hope tomorrow's more successful... Maybe we should offer chocolate?

Magnificent Malaysia! It's our final Asian destination and boy has it turned up the heat, architecture and street food for us since we crossed the border a few days ago! We can't think of a better way to wrap up two years on this crazy continent! Next stop? Bear, mosquito and ice country (aka: the wilds of Alaska). It'll mark our 3rd anniversary since leaving home (and losing the plot)! Happy travels!
