What we're about

This meet-up group is a way for ALL of biking in Anchorage to come together. Whether you are a novice, expert or somewhere in between. If you enjoy road cycling, mountain biking, cyclocross, fat tire, randonneuring or any other form of cycling, Bike Me Anchorage! is the place for you.

Bike Me Anchorage! riding events are defined by a number of parameters, which include type, distance, pace, terrain, course.

Type: Indicates the degree of organizational support for the ride (e.g. impromptu, organizer led, or an event organized by a 3rd party such as a century ride) and what type of bicycle is most appropriate; e.g. road bike, fat tire, mountain bike, etc.

Distance: One of the most obvious parameters is how far we’ll ride. Distance is measured in miles (unless specified otherwise) and rides will vary from 15 to 100+ miles. Mid-week rides, due to time constraints will typically be between 15 – 35 miles. Weekend rides may be anywhere between 15 – 100 miles. Mountain, cyclocross and fat tire bike rides would not typically focus on distance but rather length of time.

Pace: Describes how fast we’ll ride and is measured in miles per hour. Leisure rides will be in the 12-14 mph range. Moderate paced rides are 15 – 18 mph, while a fast paced ride will be 18+ mph. Some riding events will be targeted at a specific pace, while other rides will accommodate all paces.

Terrain: Indicates the type of surface the ride will be on; e.g. road, dirt, paved trail, unpaved trail, flat, hilly, mountain, snow, etc.

Course: Describes the path or route of the ride. Some rides will need and include maps & cue sheets. Other rides will not and will be guided by the ride leader. Anyone is encouraged to participate in our rides regardless of skill level or bike.

All rides are 'No Drop' which means you will not be left behind. All rides include one or more rest stops allowing everybody a chance to catch up, stretch and catch their breath. Remember, no matter what other goals you might have for a particular ride, having a fun and safe ride is our most important goal. So come on out, meet some new friends and enjoy the ride!

A few other things to keep in mind…

Risk of Injury: Like any athletic activity, cycling entails an inherent risk of injury and you acknowledge and accept that risk, and agree that Bike Me Anchorage! and its group leaders are not responsible for rider safety and/or injury. Helmets are mandatory on all rides.

Photos: For security purposes, all members are required to have a current photo attached to their Meet-Up profile that clearly shows their face. Additionally, photos will be taken at events and posted to the groups web site.
