Coastal Trail renters almost always rent for the minimum 3 hour period then make it up as they go along.  If they ride elsewhere or go longer they pay the extra hourly fee $4, $3, $2, $1 . . . when they return.

Multi-Day and Weekly Rates:

Because of the incredible pent-up post-pandemic demand for short-term rentals and to increase our ability to meet it, starting June 7, we no longer offer multi-day or weekly rates.  You can still rent a bike for multiple days or a week or even more but the rate is the 24 hour rate (usually $34) x the number of days you're renting.

Multi-day/Weekly renters can swap out one type of bike for another.  See FAQ 8.

Multi day and weekly bikers have options other than renting.  FAQ 2 explains the variables and options that can save you money.

Testimonial from our guest book

Bike trail in Anchorage

Inbound Coastal Trail rider near Earthquake Park.


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 succinctly 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 the also provided highlighted map.

A direction sheet and properly marked-up map makes it easy to bike anywhere in Anchorage.  

We're also versed on where to ride out of town.
