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!

These folks are great. They had a bike for each of us, womens, kids, mens,free carrier and helmets to go with it, bikes were all in excellent condition. They fitted the kids with helmets, checked out ours too. They patiently went over a few possible routes for us to bike on with cautionary advices for sharp turns, etc. and equipped... More

Rented bikes a couple of times on our 2 week stay. Really cool idea to travel around Anchorage and surrounding trails. Also went in the bike and hike up to flat top. That was fun as well. If you like getting out hiking and biking definitely check it out. All of the staff were knowledgable and friendly. Certainly would recommend... More

My wife and I rented a tandem bike here and took it for a 22 mile ride on the Tony Knowles Bicycle Trail. The service was great. The bicycle was functional. The trail was one of the best!

I would give them ZERO stars if it were possible. They might be fantastic, but they can't operate a telephone despite their voicemail saying they'll return calls within 24 hours... 3 calls overs 4 days and NO RESPONSE. Not that difficult, but apparently too much to ask. I guess business is so good that they don't need any more. Good... More

Rented a tandem with my wife to ride the coastal trail. Staff made sure we were properly fitted and equipped. Also gave us suggestions for other trails and we rode to the salmon hatchery based upon their recommendation. Don't miss this place if you want to rent a good bike. They also have a side trip to climb Flat Top... More

Felt 16$ for 3 hr was a bit high, but the bikes were good, they let me ride for a few mins to see if I was comfortable before renting out. Also explained the coastal trail on a map which was helpful.

This bike shop is conveniently located in downtown Anchorage. It offers bike rentals and hiking trips to Flattop Mountain. I highly recommend both. They offer many types of bikes and initially take you though a few questions to help find the bike that is right for you. The bikes include cargo compartments so they are great for carrying extra layers... More

Flat top Mt. Service is an awesome activity especially for one who don't want to rent a car. Peter act like a local guide, which is good for sight seeing.
