Ride Description

Remote Alaska 2021

Ride Leaders are two longtime Alaska residents - Monica and Greg Lyall, orcaw8@gmail.com

NOTE:  This trip STARTS in FAIRBANKS and ENDS in ANCHORAGE.

OVERVIEW:

This is a fully supported 11-day gravel bicycle trip on a mix of some of Alaska’s most scenic paved and gravel roads (no single track) from Fairbanks, Alaska across the breathtaking Denali Highway to Denali National Park and south to Anchorage.  Sockeye Cycle Co. of Haines, Alaska,  will provide pre-trip logistics and accommodation booking, ride support (including hydration, lunch, and snacks daily) and baggage transportation from lodge to lodge. There will be several highly recommended opportunities for optional excursions, such as a bus ride into Denali National Park to see the famous Toklat grizzly bears and many other large and small animals.  None of these excursions are included in the base tour price and arrangements will be each individual’s responsibility but Monica and Greg will help with logistics. 

ESTIMATED COST:

$5,200 per person with a minimum of 8 and maximum of 10 guests based on double occupancy; $1200 single supplement; almost all meals are included.

People Cycling's Ride Rating

People Cycling has four categories for our rides – Easy, Moderate, Difficult, and Challenging. It should be somewhat obvious what these categories mean, but please become familiar with the elevations and distances that define them:

Easy
Easy rides are under 30mi/48km in average distance and 1600ft/500m in average elevation
Moderate
Moderate rides are over the Easy rating but under 50mi/80km and 2460ft/750m
Difficult
Difficult rides are as over the Moderate rating but under 75mi/120km and 3280/1000m
Challenging
Anything over the Difficult rating

NOTE: This is not a strict guideline. There could be rides that have a day or two where the average elevation or distance exceeds the values given above. These anomalies should be outlined in the ride description. It is recommended that you read it carefully.

About People Cycling

People Cycling is a recently launched cycling club, which you can join for free, and is led by volunteer ride leaders. We will be offering tours in the United States and overseas. Our tours are made up of a small group of participants (typically 20-30 or so) who want to ride 30 to 55 miles a day over a one or two week period in interesting regions of the world.

Our ride leaders are volunteers and do not financially profit on tours they lead. They are also given broad discretion on how to lead their tours, and we consider them our greatest asset.

People Cycling tours are operated at cost or at lower cost (as negotiated by our ride leaders) than individuals can obtain on commercial tours. Within the cost of a tour, there is a nominal fee to support club operations and provide tools to ride leaders to manage their rides.

A lifetime membership in People Cycling is absolutely FREE, so please join us and become one of us – we the people, cycling together.
