Fairbanks is the largest city within the interior region of Alaska, and boasts miles of year-round mountain biking trails.
You can leave the city behind, but don't forget your bike! A network of singletrack just outside Fairbanks boasts 9.5 miles of fast and flowy trails.
The rolling, winding trail network starts at a designated trail head off of a residential street--not exactly in the middle of nowhere.
Read on for the full review of the Ester Dome Trail in Fairbanks.

It's seriously miserable outside as I type this. Cold and rainy. What I wouldn't give to travel back in time to Kauai, Hawaii.
Not too long ago, when it was once again miserable in my part of the world, I visited the island. In another time, some 5,000 miles away, I explored the sun-soaked singletrack of The Aloha State on two wheels.
And it was glorious.
