The 2014 Palmer Spring Classic absolutely rocked! Backcountry Bike & Ski did an spectacular job of organizing and hosting another wonderful Valley ride. This early season event has a life of its own, and a reputation to match. If you missed it this year, do yourself a favor and commit to riding it in 2015! Results and photos are now posted: RESULTS – PHOTOS
The days are getting longer, and so are our rides! Just set your PR at the Bike for Women? Looking to get some L.S.D. for the Fireweed in two months? Randonneuring has everything you need. Our rides are scenic, interesting, challenging, and adventurous. We’ll put we you roads you didn’t even know existed up here. We put the joy and adventure back in your ride.
Choose one of three overlapping courses Saturday, May 17th. Each one is a rambling route with a variety of encounters ranging from local urban neighborhoods, quiet backroads, deep valleys surrounded by soaring, snowcapped peaks, a Native village, industrial zones, beaches and ocean views, rivers and railroads. Along the way, you'll pass through Anchorage, Eagle River, Chugiak/Birchwood/Peters Creek, Eklutna, Palmer, and Knik. There will be plenty of places to stop to refuel along the way in any one of these communities; lots of stores, restaurants, cafes, convenience stores, etc. There are a few hilly sections, but you should be well prepared from the last two 200Ks.
Come ride some new roads, make some new friends, ride until your lungs burst, or simply enjoy the journey.
