Huw and Kurt Embark on the Iditarod Trail

Posted by in Adventures Ambassadors
As a bikepacking company born and raised in Alaska, the Iditarod Trail has a special place in our hearts. Whether folks are racing or touring it – the Iditarod isn’t to be taken lightly. Preparations for spending time out on the trail take months of time, especially if you’re going the full 1,000 miles. Revelate ambassadors Huw Oliver and Kurt Refsnider happen to be doing just that! Huw hails from Scotland and Kurt from Arizona, so as they were getting their bikes prepped, packages shipped, and final boxes checked they stopped into Revelate HQ to chat with us and give a full gear run down.

Check out Kurt’s full packing list here!

Kurt and Huw are out on the trail headed to Nome. Below are some photos they’v’e been sharing with us from their journey – the first 350 miles are already behind them!
