Ghost Trails; riding the Iditarod trail by bicycle

“And you’re gonna be in that race? That Iditabike?”
“Yes,”I said.
Brown hat laughed. “You’re crazy. All of you. Crazy.”
“Yeah,”I said. “I get that often.”
“If my daughter wanted to do that, ride a bike across the tundra,”the man said as he nudged another guy sitting next to him, “I’d kill her. I would. It would be a less painful way to die.”
--Ghost Trails, by Jill Homer

I'm in the middle of reading Jill Homer's book, Ghost Trails. A complete review pending! Meanwhile, you can check out her blog: http://arcticglass.blogspot.com/
