I have always been interested in fat tire biking, but the bikes are too expensive to just buy on a whim. So I was excited when my friend organized a fat tire bike tour in Anchorage and one of the other participants recommended renting a bike from Arctic Cycles.
My friends Edward and Teresa live up in Anchorage for now, and that would be home base for the trip. I packed snowshoes, my nordic skis, winter camping and cycling gear to keep our options open. I really had no way to get my Salsa Mukluk fatbike up there for any cost less than just buy prednisone online for dogs
I made my way down to Anchorage the day before to pick up my rental bike and stay with my friends Jim and Ayme Johnson. Just around the corner from their house is Arctic Cycles where Billy Koitzsch has a whole fleet of winter ready fat tired bikes available for rent.
I signed up for the frosty bottom race on my skinny tire mountain bike and only made it about 7 miles before I gave up. The next weekend I tracked down Arctic Cycles, rented a couple bikes with my buddy and completed the frosty bottom route. Great service – you guys rock!
