Bike Anchorage is a volunteer-driven organization, and ultimately we need your help to be successful in our mission to make Anchorage more bicycle friendly. Come out to our events!
When Anchorage commutes by bike, foot, or bus we are all better off. Fewer single occupant vehicles on the road means less congestion, noise, and pollution. Plus, if you pick an active commute, you're healthier and more productive at work.
Every time you log a bike, walk, or transit commute, your network gets points. The winning small, medium, and large networks can look forward to sparkling trophies at the Golden Sprocket Awards in early October!
As if that wasn't enough, every time you log a trip, you are entered into a drawing for some amazing prizes!
The challenge kicks off on Bike to Work Day and runs through the end of September. Everyone is automatically added to this challenge, so all you have to do is log trips and recruit your friends and coworkers.
Here's to an active summer, Anchorage! More info here.
Last Friday treat stations are back! On July 26th, be sure to commute by bike and take advantage of all the treats!

Join us at the Russian Jack Chalet for a Smart Cycling course in partnership with Anchorage Parks and Recreation!
Many people are intimidated and discouraged by the way motorists dominate the roadway. Through education and practice, Smart Cycling teaches the basic fundamentals of safe riding to improve your decision making in traffic and to build your confidence when riding a bicycle on city streets.
– Understand your rights and duties as a driver operating a bicycle safely and legally on public roadways.
– Develop the ability to identify unsafe traffic situations and make decisions that can prevent common crashes and collisions.
– Learn how to perform a pre-ride bike safety check.
The course includes a student manual, review of state and local laws, on-bike skill development, and additional tools to help you become a more confident and smart cyclist on the roadway.
Participants should bring their own bike and helmet (we've got helmets if you don't have one!) for parts two and three. Part one is classroom only.
