    Teton Gravity Research’s latest action-packed mountain bike film, Esperanto mixes the rock stars of the sport with a cast of unknown and up-and-coming heroes. The film explores how we share our dreams through a universal two-wheeled language no matter what our native tongue may be. The sacred ritual of the ride might sound different all across the world – whether it’s a full-face getting pulled down to drop into a big jump line or wheeling a beat-up bike out of a mud hut to pedal to school – but it’s a universal process no matter what language we speak.

    As we view this visual tapestry featuring next-level riding in unusual locations all across the globe, we hear a voice speaking a language we’ve never heard:

    There are more than 7,000 languages spoken on Earth. In 1887 a Polish-Jewish doctor named L.L. Zamenhof created a new one, a universal second language based on a combination of existing widely-spoken European languages. Its goal is to help bring people together from different ideologies, beliefs, and nations and ultimately to help end war. The language was called Esperanto. Translated into English it means ‘one who hopes.’ Today, Esperanto might remain elusive, but the dream of a shared language Spoken Worldwide still flourishes. You just have to know where to look for it.

    Esperanto is not rated, however the film is suitable for all ages.

  • Anchorage Museum City Bike Tours

    Strong communities in the Upper Cook Inlet have always depended on healthy waterways. 

    Join us on a bike tour of waterways in downtown and west Anchorage and hear about how water has been stewarded, shaped, and transformed by original Dena’ina cultures and the urban development of today. 

    Attendees will hear from Aaron Leggett, senior curator of Alaska History and Culture and president of the Native Village of Eklutna, and Friends of Fish Creek, a local nonprofit organization advocating to acknowledge Fish Creek's cultural significance and restore its wild salmon habitat through daylighting.

    Free. Tour begins at the Anchorage Museum and covers four to eight miles; may not be suitable for all riders. Meet at 5 p.m., ride begins at 5:30 p.m. (rain or shine). A partnership with Bike Anchorage.

    Part of the “Water Moves Life” project. Made possible, in part, with support from the Visionary Initiatives in Art (VIA) Fund and the National Endowment for the Arts.

  • 2022 Denali Randonneurs Summer Schedule - Anchorage to Seward (and back!)

    COME RIDE WITH US!

    It’s 2022 and Denali Randonneurs is back!  The snow is deep and beautiful but the sun is shining and soon it will be time to ride the roads. Our first ride is coming sooner than you think–on May 14 in Talkeetna. In order to participate in our rides you need to be a member of Denali Randonneurs, and a member of Randonneurs USA.

    About Randonneuring

    Randonneuring (sometimes called audax) is non-competitive, long distance cycling. Camaraderie, not competition, is the hallmark of randonneuring. Finishing riders are always listed in alphabetical order, not by time of completion. Complete the  course in the time allotted and congratulations, you are a randonneur.
