Bicycle Commuters of Anchorage is Bike Anchorage

Bicycle Commuters of Anchorage is now Bike Anchorage. After years working to make Anchorage more bicycle-friendly, we recognized that BCA was not representative of our work. To be more inclusive and better reflect our mission of making Anchorage bicycle-friendly for everyone and anyone, we have changed our name to Bike Anchorage. Our mission remains the same and our work, as defined through our 2014-2018 strategic plan, remains focused. 

With our new website, you can find out what fun events we have planned, can sign-up to volunteer, and stay up-to-date on exciting news stories about biking in Anchorage--all in one place!

We look forward to getting more people involved in making Anchorage a more bicycle-friendly city, so get involved and stay tuned!

That’s the reason for The Ronde van Anchorage 100K. It’s on the wild side of urban adventures. It’s challenging, beautiful, and all proceeds support the BCA! We’re giving back to insure the BCA continues on its mission.

BCA’s condolences

490897At the start of 2014, a long-time commuter, Eldridge Griffith, was stuck and killed by a motorist. This tragedy strikes all of us at our core. And serves as a stark and solemn reminder that what BCA is about and what we are striving for in Anchorage are important to everyone in this city. With any tragedy like this, the effects are felt across the community. Family and friends’ lives are changed. Someone dear to them is gone. And no words can really serve to address the pain and loss. For those that don’t know Mr. Griffith, the loss is a tear in the tight fabric that is the Anchorage bicycling community. BCA was created in 2008 with the mission of making Anchorage more bicycle-friendly. Our vision is a city where it is safe, convenient and desirable to go by bike. We know we have a lot of work to do. We also know that much has been accomplished to date. The city is changing, and moving in the right direction. Although, admittedly not at the rate any of us would like to see. BCA will continue, with hearts saddened by this tragic loss, to work to make Anchorage safer for everyone. With this tragedy, BCA takes time to reflect on Anchorage as a bicycle-city.
