Wat je gaat doen
Snow is here finally, let’s ride! If you haven't had a chance to try out fat-biking yet, now is your chance! "Fat bikes" are like mountain bikes but way better. Even beginners can ride over snow, sand, dirt, etc. They float easily above the packed snow trails. Karl will pick you up at your Anchorage hotel or BnB, and drive to the nearby riding opportunities. There are many places to ride and explore in Alaska's largest city but they can be hard to find and navigate, so these trips are fully guided. Pre-ride, we will discuss bear safety and what we'll do in case of a wildlife encounter. This outing may be your best chance to see moose, bear, porcupine, or even wolves and wolverines near Anchorage. You'll be outfitted with helmets, properly sized bikes, and hydration. Then we will head out to the dirt or, based on time of the season, snow packed trails. This experience is as much about life in the last frontier as it is about fat bikes. Karl is familiar with Alaska's unique culture and what life is like year-round in the 49th state (most guides are only here for the summer). We'll check out some fantastic views, snap some photos, visit some wildlife hot-spots, and return to your hotel or BnB. For non-cyclists, we have hiking options as well.
I'm an avid cyclist, outdoors enthusiast, and participate in all the Alaskan things. I've worked in Alaska's Chugach National Forest as a wildlife biologist and competed in Alaska's longest mountain bike race (5 times!). Additionally, I've ran my own mountain bike touring company for several years and am a skilled bicycle mechanic.

Waar je naartoe gaat
There are lots of options for riding and hiking in Anchorage. Dirt (or packed snow in the winter), hiking in the mountains, or biking the beach near downtown Anchorage. In the summer, we ride along salmon spawning streams and through dense Alaskan forests. Fat-bikes are the perfect machines for exploring this varied terrain, and even novice riders can navigate over loose sand, snow, or dirt trails.
