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!

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
