Thanks Peter at Downtown Bicycle Rentals, I spent a very pleasant week in mid September riding around Anchorage. I am not an experienced rider so can not comment on the condition or quality of the bikes themselves, the one I had was more than sufficient for my needs. The owner is very helpful, you can come back in at any... More

The staff is just amazing. I watched them treat people very well and cater to the skill level at hand. They did not baby the experts. They were really complete in info for the novice. They was my favorite thing we did. We did the coastal trail. We saw moose, great views and not a ton of people. It is... More

We were planning several day long bike trips while family were visiting and needed one additional mountain bike. I was referred to Downtown Bicycle Rental and they exceeded every expectation. They took the time to fit the bike to the person and that included test riding two different bikes up and down the block before the representative was satisfied with... More

Renting bicycles and riding the Coastal Trail was a highlight of our time in Anchorage. The folks at Downtown Bicycle Rental were easy to work with, provided information on the Coastal Trail and other routes, and were very friendly. We saw moose along the trail during our ride. Biking is definitely a good idea for Anchorage, and Downtown Bicycle Rental... More

Great customer service....all the gear you need (helmets, locks, etc.) is available right down to the rubber bands we needed to keep our jeans from getting caught in the chain! They also give you an orientation of the city and where to get on the trail with all the construction going on.

we rented two bikes for fours hours in June and the bikes were well maintained and repair kits were provided. However, don't be late back. We were ten minutes late and were charged an extra $8 fee by the girl on the desk.

We were surprised and disappointed at the state of the hire bikes here; many really old ones, unlike at Pablo's. Yes this company is central and yes they sell cool bike shirts, but if you want to share the joy of cycling and talk to an enthusiast who will provide a big selection of bikes, tandems etc, then my advice...

Pete provides a great service for those without cars to go up and hike Flattop Mountain. He stays up on the mountain and gives more than ample time to hike.

We had the most spectacularly fun time biking on the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail on bikes we rented from Downtown Bike Rental. We felt fully taken care of as the staff asked us about our cycling experience and set us up with bikes that fit us well and rode beautifully. Our 6 year-old daughter did well on a ride-a-long bike... More

Being in Anchorage with no car, this discovery was fantastic for a day. The guys transported us up to Flattop Mountain for a hike (in a couple of feet of snow). They went out of their way to help us with hiking poles, proper shoes, guide map/directions. They transport you back when finished. It is an unguided hike with spectacular... More
