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 is, go to Pablo's.

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 hitched to the back of my husband's. They also have chariot-style trailers for littler ones and kids' bikes for confident small bikers. We were set up with directions and a map of the surrounding area and took off on our bike ride. The trail was so beautiful and really fun. We stopped in Earthquake Park to learn about the devastating earthquake of 1964. We did not see moose, but we sure looked! We ended up taking the alternate route home and we're SO glad we did. It's a little longer and a bit more urban, but we had a blast riding through Lake Hood, the world's largest seaplane base. Would enthusiastically recommend this to any visitors to Anchorage!

You've read it before, but it's true...the owner is passionate about his trade and it shows. He is helpful, informative, and has a dry sense of humor. He'll set you up with the right equipment based on your activity, skill level, route, and weather conditions.I'm really appreciative to have had his expertise when I rented my bike. You will be glad you went here!!!

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.
