We hired 2 bikes to ride the coastal trail. We took over 4 hours (we returned via Lake Hood). Bikes were well maintained, comfortable and with gears. Staff provided us with an easy to understand map and away we went. When we returned, they hadn't booked the time of our departure so charged us just for the 3 hours. Thanks... More

I really think the Coastal Trail is a must-do here in Anchorage. It was the nicest urban bike trail I've ever been on. Easy ride, (rolling hills) and gorgeous views. On a leisurely ride, you can do the whole thing in the 3 hours the $16 rental costs. We stopped for lunch on our way back and ended up paying... More

A great place to rent a bike and ride the Coastal Bike Trail. The bikes were great with good comfortable seats which is most important as far as I'm concerned. The staff was quite knowledgeable and we're able to answer all questions and get us pointed in the right direction. Best was the price, $16 for 3 hours which was... More

My friend and I rented a bike to go along the coastal trail. The staff are very helpful and friendly - super accommodating! Would definitely go there again. Also have great hours.

We rented three bikes one of which was a tandem. The shop was very busy but the gentlemen did a great job taking care of everyone with efficiency. They really made sure the bikes were in working order. We enjoyed our bike riding! Great way to get down the coastal trail.

We were a group of (8) - at the tail end of our 2 week trip to Alaska. The place was in walking distance of our hotel (Captain Cook). Extremely helpful, outfitted everything quickly, safely and easily, trail map - Tony Knowles Trail, advice, flexible on hours (it as $32 for each couple) and we rode for 3 plus hours... More

Peter knows Anchorage and gives special attention to everyone coming to the door. Excellent selection of bikes. It is obvious he pays particular attention to bike maintenance and gives great advice. I've been there several times and don't write many reviews. Peter deserves praise and his Flattop Mountain Shuttle service is great to either hike or do a hike-bike combo.... More

Not much to say but they have an excellent selection of bikes, shift gears without any problems, great service, and good prices. Will provide a backpack and helmets if needed. Well worth the adventure. Restrooms are clean.

So glad we chose to take the shuttle up to Flattop. The hike was fun, the views (of course) were amazing, but the guide was also very knowledgeable and the best part . . . we didn't have to fight for parking! Great idea and a great way to get into the Chugach mountains from downtown Anchorage.

We used Downtown Bicycles to shuttle to and from Flat Top mountain. The price was reasonable and the directions to hike and take amazing photos was an added plus!
