I have biked in Snowshoe West Virginia and the Blue Ridge Parkway. This Trail is just as scenic as Snowshoe West Virginia with ample stops to rest and enjoy the views. As for the bike rental, the staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. It is a great way to really enjoy Anchorage and a very reasonable way to do it. It is a must do experience even if you do not like to bike, you should take walk along the trail.
