Speaking of cold weather cycling look for the book:
Wheels on ice: Bicycling in Alaska 1898-1908 Terrence Cole ISBN 0882402722
I read this in the 1980's and have been kicking myself for not buying a copy or two while it was still in print. I've asked the publisher's successor to do a reprint and contacted Grant Peterson about it since his customers would love a book like this but no luck.
I've seen it available used for over $100 and don't want it that bad but I'd be happy to pay a more reasonable price.
While the book is rare you can find some excerpts on the web if you search.
