This shop was only a few blocks from our hotel. The team is very helpful and attentive, even during busy times. They made sure we had the right types of bikes, that they fit & worked correctly, and that all of our questions were answered. We were able to rent two bikes for three hours for only $32 - a...

My husband and I rented a tandem bicycle and rode the Coastal Trail. Service was excellent; a bike lock, helmets, repair kit, and trail maps/guidance was included. We had fun!

Convenient location in the heart of downtown Anchorage and a wonderful coastal ride awaits just a few blocks away. The staff is very helpful and prices are quite fair. My wife and I got nice Cannondales which are the brand we have at home. Highly recommended bike shop and a wonderful ride along the Anchorage shoreline. About 5 miles out... More

I wanted to get in a couple of rides during a week long trip. Several places offer mtn and other bikes, but this shop had several levels of road bikes as well. Their recommendations and cautions were current and spot-on. They were very solicitous in getting the bike set up to accommodate me. They are super convenient to the Coastal... More

This place knows customer service. They made sure our bikes fit each one of us before we were on a way. They supplied us with maps and areas where we might see wildlife. The bikes worked perfect and the pricing was very fair. Would definitely return!

I rented a bike for 24 hours and then took the shuttle to Flattop Mountain with these guys. Their prices are affordable and the staff were all friendly and helpful. From the bike rental, I was able to ride all over the city of Anchorage and take great photos and video footage. The coastal trail begins about a block away... More

Downtown Bicycle Rental is a great and affordable place to rent a bike to go down the Tommy Knowles Coastal Trail, which starts only a few blocks from the store. The owner is very friendly and helpful. I have rented from Downtown Bicycle Rental a number of times and have always had a great experience.

We stopped in on a busy Sunday afternoon. The staff helped get us fitted for the right bikes and helmets. You can even do a "test ride" on the sidewalk. (There are a variety of bike styles available.) They were friendly, accommodating and took the time to explain the nuances of the Tony Knowles Trail, even telling us that the... More
