Help us Count Cyclists!

We need your help counting cyclists on Bike to Work Day - Friday, May 17th!
Every year since 2007, this data has been critical to securing funding for projects that have made our city a better place to bike and walk. This year, we need your help to make sure these counts continue. Without intrepid volunteers like you, 12 years of meaningful data on cyclist traffic is at risk.
We have two time slots available (6:30 - 7:45 am & 7:45 - 9am) at a number of counting locations across town. If you are available for any of the yellow slots below, please send an email to [email protected]
Volunteers receive the 2019 Bike to Work Day t-shirt as a thank you!

Experiencing the Winter Cycling Congress

I am going to be honest with you all here, I never heard of the Winter Cycling Congress before the Bike Anchorage board offered me the opportunity to attend the international conference. Further, I never, ever, considered visiting Calgary, a large city in central Canada that, for outdoor enthusiasts like myself, is shadowed by its scenic mountainous neighbor, Banff. When I described my upcoming trip to my father, he simply remarked, “Calgary, huh, cattle country!” He isn’t wrong, Calgary is home to its namesake Stampede, one of the largest rodeo festivals in the world. But, despite their bucolic roots, Calgary is also an ambitious modern northern city with big plans to advance its transportation infrastructure, and they were keen on sharing those advancements with the rest of the world.

Trail Tales with Anchorage GRIT

As a board member for Bike Anchorage, I am recruiting speakers for an Alaska Trails' Trail Tales event. The event will take place on February 5th during Winter Bike Fest and will partner to raise money for Anchorage GRIT. 
I am reaching out to see if you, or anyone you know, would be interested in sharing a story for the event. Of course, we would love bike themed stories, but we are open to any story you feel passionate in sharing about an Alaska outdoors experience. Stories typically last seven minutes and I should stress that the setting is quite informal and the crowd always supportive! I told a story last year and felt at ease after I met the other presenters and crowd. Here is a link to past events so that you can get a feel for what the evening is like: Alaska Trails: Trail Tales
If you are interested please email [email protected] with your confirmation and story idea.
Happy New Year everyone!
