Girdwood//Mountain Biking just 45 Minutes from Anchorage
June - September
Rent a mountain bike (and all the body armor you need) for a thrilling, two-wheel ride down Mt. Alyeska. Lessons and tours of the route are offered. Or, go for a hike on one of the many area trails, either with a guide or on your own. You can even strap on some crampons and go trekking on a glacier.
Anchorage//Bike the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, Kincaid Park from Downtown Anchorage
More than 100 well-maintained bikes of all types. Conveniently located in Downtown Anchorage five blocks from the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail. On their website you’ll find photos and specs of each bike and a separate page for each of Anchorage's four green belt bike paths.
Anchorage may be Alaska’s big city, but this bicycle tour operator offers quick proof that the city has a lot of wilderness. Choose your ride based on half-day or full-day options, as well as difficulty. You’ll go from downtown to Mother Nature—with mountains, coastal views, and the occasional moose sighting—in no time at all. Better yet, the tours often include beer tastings or lunch.
