Anchorage, AK is a "Bike Utopia." Bicycling Magazine, November 2004. The 2008 Anchorage Daily News Visitor's Guide writes: "If you don't spend at least a couple of hours on a bicycle during a stop in Anchorage, you're missing out on what could be the highlight of your vacation."
Four paved greenbelt trails ring Anchorage. The 11-mile Tony Knowles Coastal Trail is the best. Together with the Chester Creek Trail, the meandering Campbell Creek Trail and the new Ship Creek Trail, they create a bike-beltway. Map/Routes On the Coastal Trail in the woods between the airport's fenced runways and the ocean, most renters encounter moose.
Collaborate. First we ask what type of bike(s) you ride back home and what type of riding you want to do here. Paved trails? Single/double track? Distance/road? Next we suggest a bike and you test it. Shift the gears, check the brakes, etc. Does everything work? Does the bike fit? Is the seat comfortable and at the right height? After you pick the bike you like, we discuss where to go and how to get there.
First 3 hours - $16. $4, $3, $2, $1 for subsequent hours.
Free lock, helmet, map, directions, suggestions, panniers and flat-tire repair kit.
