Biking Tours & Rentals

In Anchorage biking is a way of life. Whether you’re cruising on a cruiser, buzzing a forested single-track on a mountain bike, rolling through a greenway on a road bike, or touring with a tandem, you’ll be in good company among the thousands of locals who ride.

Anchorage has been called a “bike utopia” by Bicycling Magazine and was ranked among “America's Best Bike Cities” in the same magazine.

There’s no need to bring your own ride. Vendors rent bikes of all types close to the city’s growing network of paved and unpaved trails.

Mountain bikers can get their dirt fix at Kincaid and its 39 miles of looping roller-coaster trails including nine miles of new single-track, or the inclines and single-track of the Hillside trail system.

Just up the hill in Anchorage, Hilltop Ski Area features a downhill, lift-assisted mountain bike park with a pump track with trails for all levels.

Just outside of town, downhill bombers can ride the lifts of Alyeska Resort and descend more than 2,000 feet to the valley floor. 

Got a competitive itch? There’s racing for road, mountain, cyclocross, and winter bikes, everything from road racing’s Tour of Anchorage to some of the most extreme winter racing anywhere. Want to go long? Local randonneur rides start at 100K and go up to as long as 1,200K (744 miles).
