Bike trail in Anchorage

Inbound Coastal Trail rider near Earthquake Park.

Plane take off

Anchorage has the world's 4th busiest cargo airport.  Coastal Trail mile marker 5.5 is at the end of the north-south runway.

We will have many bikes for you to choose from when you get here. Selecting a bike is a collaboration. We ask questions to narrow the choices then suggest a bike which you test. Sometimes people test two or three.

After you decide which bike to rent, verify it shifts and brakes properly and that it is safe.

Next we provide a map and direction sheet and explain where to go (usually coastal trail), how to get there and what to expect.

No guide is needed to bike the coastal trail.  Keep the ocean on your right on the way out, and on your left on the way back.

Some people decide to bike back on the Alternate Return Route. If you choose it, dovetail the detailed direction sheet with a highlighted map.
