*DOWN PANTS FOR BIKING*Having trouble staying warm while riding in winter? Or not riding because you’re afraid you’ll be too cold? Here’s an article that can help.

Ultralight down pants are highly compressible, super warm, and can be a game-changer for shoulder season and winter bikepacking, as well as other outdoor pursuits. Logan and Virginia recently discovered this and have some thoughts on the subject.

*FAST CRITICIZES EPA TRANSPORTATION FUNDING PLAN*In a draft response to the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposal to cut some transportation funding if the EPA’s air quality requirements are not met, FAST Planning Executive Director Jackson Fox criticizes the proposal.
“Transportation is clearly not the problem, nor will withholding Federal highway funding contribute in any way to solving the problem,” the response states.
Some, but not all, bike/ped projects would be affected by the EPA’s punitive measures.
*TRAIL CREW KEEPS ADMA TRAIL OPEN*If you use the ADMA trails, this is another reason you should get a trail pass: alaskadogmushers.com/trail-pass-and-membership/
Shared from Alaska Dog Mushers Association Feb 5 We got a report of a tree down blocking the trail earlier today, but Todd and Bob made quick work of getting it sawed up and the trail opened back up. If you are ever out on the trail system and notice something like this please bring it to our attention. Thank you ADMA crew!
