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

We rented our bikes here for a ride along the Coastal Trail ( which was fabulous). 3 hours for $16. Bikes were in good condition and had repair equipment for road repair. We were asked and fitted for bikes to our ability/liking. However, Peter, when he gave us our instructions, did so as if he were a robot. It was... More

I did the flattop hike and Peter was very informative on the drive there, pointing out interesting things about Anchorage. The printout with instructions he gave prior to the hike were also very helpful. After getting back we did the Tony Knowles trail by renting bicycles from the shop. We unfortunately couldn't finish all of it because we needed to... More

We started our afternoon by catching a van shuttle from Downtown Bicycle Rental to Flattop Mountain to hike. Peter was able to tell us lots about Anchorage and even stop for us to take pictures of the Moose at the side of the road. Peter waited at the parking lot for 2 hours while we hiked up Flattop Mountain. This... More

I did the flattop mountain hike which is provided by this company. We left at 1:00 pm but get there at 12:30 to pay and organise yourself. Costs was $23 which includes the transfer and Peter took his dogs up helping anyone who needed further guidance. It takes about an hour up and 45 minutes back down. I decided on... More

The guys at the shop were fun to deal with. They got us fitted up with bikes and off we went. The Tony Knowles trail was so beautiful and we really enjoyed the alternate return route given to us by the bike shop. It was a nice way to ride both scenic and urban trails. I recommend following their advice... More

Peter and his team blew us away with their intent to help us have the best and safest time, interest in knowing our needs and wants and wonderful products. They helped us have a brilliant time.

The people at the downtown bicycle rental were so helpful. They helped my friends and I properly get fitted for the bikes we rented. They had a great map of the coastal trail explaining exactly where to find the trial. They also gave us an option of an alternate route back. This was awesome. We rode by the lake and... More

Bought a high-end Fuji road bike thru the shop after renting a road bike from them for the biggest road race in AK. While they took great care of my rental & purchase, I watched the busy staff rent out a variety of cruisers and mtn bikes to visitors & always give them great tips on appropriate local paved and...
