Ride Description

Alaska’s Iron Circle – Juneau & More; Tuesday, July 12th – Friday, July 15th, 2022

Our recent People Cycling Annual Survey indicated an interest among members for shorter, immersive tours and we are excited to offer Alaska’s Iron Circle – Juneau & More as our first such tour. Come join us July 12th– July 15th, 2022, over four days/three nights for an enjoyable and educational exploration, by bike, of Juneau, Alaska’s state capital. Considered by many to be the most beautiful capital city in the US, Juneau is also the only state capital to be not connected to the US Road System. This isolation has led to the development of a close knit local athletic community and their support inspired World Ironman Corp. to select Juneau as the site of Alaska’s first full Ironman triathlon on August 7th, 2022. This tour will provide members with a unique opportunity to cycle some or all the IM’s 112.4-mile route over the course of two days while enjoying local culture and meals and Alaskan craft beer in the evening and sleeping in an ideally located hip hotel across the street from our supporting bike shop. 

An epic adventure – check. Ultimate bragging rights – check. But Alaska user-friendly? Check again! … (Join People Cycling to read more)

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.
