All the details for the Summer Bike Challenge can be found here.
Bike to Work Day is just around the corner. We hope you have already registered. If not go to the Muni’s Bike to Work day page and register today to be eligible for a Trek 7.1 RX donated by Chain Reaction Cycles!
This year we are very excited to bring back the popular BCA Bacon Station. You can find us on the Chester Creek trail in the park just east of the tunnel under the Seward Highway. We’d like to thank Spenard Roadhouse for donating the bacon, Raven’s Brew Coffee for the coffee and Great Harvest Bread for the cookies!
This year we are also excited to see several businesses taking the lead and hosting their very own coffee and treats stations throughout the city.
We will be providing more details on all of the Bike Stations soon. For now we know of the following stations:
- Chain Reaction Cycles will be at it again with the station located on Elmore at the Elmore/Abbott intersection. Their station will be sponsored by House of Bread.
- Newcomers to Coffee & Treats, CRW Engineering Group and DOWL HKM will put aside their relentless rivalry for one day—and one day only—to offer a joint venture replenishment station for Bike to Workers. Stop by the NE corner of Tudor and C Street (in front of the big red fish) for treats and prizes!
- South Central and ANTHC will again have a station outside of the ANTHC building (near Elmore & Tudor)
- Thompson & Co. Public Relations will be providing goodies and coffee from Kaladi Brothers Coffee at 9th and E. St. The Anchorage Downtown Partnership will be there with raffle drawings for dining certificates at downtown restaurants.
For those who fear they may get sweaty, all the Alaska Club locations are offering free showers to anyone who brings in their bike helmet on Bike to Work Day, Friday May 20th.
