Ride Description


General Information

Come join us July 1st - 5th, 2024, over five days/four 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 unique in that it is also the only US state capital in North America that is not connected to the road system.

The city of Juneau comprises the mainland and Douglas Island which is connected via a bridge, and as such, there are 4 ends of the road. This tour will provide members with a unique opportunity to cycle directly from the doorstep of an ideally located hip hotel downtown to all 4 ends of the road over the course of 3 days of riding. This exact route is the crown jewel ride for any seasoned Juneau cyclist! With miles upon miles of sublime coastline pedaling alongside the ocean, and roller coaster climbs through the temperate rainforest this is sure to be a memorable adventure!

Off the bike there will also be plenty of time for us to soak up the local culture, history, cuisine, and Alaskan craft beer. Also, this tour is organized so that we will have the opportunity to enjoy the over-the-top 4th of July festivities. Juneau’s tight knit community comes out in full force to celebrate their Independence and enjoy one another’s company.

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 rides are under 30mi/48km in average distance and 1600ft/500m in average elevation
Moderate rides are over the Easy rating but under 50mi/80km and 2460ft/750m
Difficult rides are as over the Moderate rating but under 75mi/120km and 3280/1000m
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 bicycle touring club, which you can join for free. We offer Domestic and International Cycling Tours which are led by volunteer Ride Leaders. Our tours are made up of a small group of participants (typically 15-20 or so) who want to ride an average of 30 to 55 miles a day over a one or two week period in interesting regions of the world. Our tours range in price from frugal getaways to luxurious adventures. We travel road, gravel, or mountain bike styles, and all bicycle types – including e-bikes, recumbents, and tandems are typically allowed.

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.
