We handpicked the most scenic biking routes—from Indian to Girdwood or Girdwood to Indian and Portage Valley. Whether you’re in search of wide-open vistas, a quaint local town like Girdwood or simply one thrilling backroads bike adventure, take your Alaska experience to a whole new level with a Turnagain Arm bike tour.

We’ve partnered with a reputable bike shop at the Turnagain Arm Shuttle to give bikers the best self-guided experience possible while also adapting to the challenges surrounding adventure travelers who want to get out on their own. Our goal is to provide you with a safe and unforgettable experience from the moment your bike rental begins to the end of your trail journey.

Our shuttle with 4 bike racks departs Anchorage at: 8 am, 9 am, 10 am, 11 am and noon.

We’re excited to get you out on the bike trails that wind along the Turanagain Arm and Portage Valley’s Trail of Blue Ice!


We have partnered with Downtown Bicycle Rental, Sales & Repair which offers a large selection of premium bikes in a variety of sizes – their bike offering is anything but generic! The bike rental shop is located one block from our pick up location, making your bike adventure hassle-free.

From Downtown Bicycle Rental, Sales & Repair:

Selecting a bike is collaboration. We ask questions to narrow the choices then suggest a bike which you test. Sometimes people test two or three. Because you’re empowered here, making an advance sight-unseen reservation is almost always much ado about nothing.

After you decide which bike to rent, verify it shifts and brakes properly and that the bike is safe. we provide a map and directions. We succinctly explain where to go, how to get there and how to be careful. No guide is needed to cycle the many trails available to you.
