take care of everything else! At Alaskabike we feel the tour activities are plenty for you to do, so we set up

What's a Day
On a typical high mileage
day, we will meet for breakfast at 8:00 AM and be ready to ride about
9:30 AM. We generally divide the riding day into four legs of 12 -
22 miles each. After the first leg, we have a snack break at the
van, where we have bananas, apples, candy bars, drinks and all kinds of
other goodies available. After the second leg we have lunch, which
may be in a lodge, or may be on the side of the road. After the third leg we have
another snack break, and then its onto our rooms and dinner. We
eat our way down the highway!
A shorter mileage day
proceeds much the same except after lunch we might hop in the van to
go to a trailhead for a hiking excursion.
Riders ride at their
own pace. At all times a guide is employed as 'sweeper' and
rides at the back of the group to catch any flat tires or other
problems. Some groups string out over quite a distance.
Others are much the same speed and stay as a pack. No matter.
You get to ride at a pace you find comfortable.
