Our Adventure Series Presentations take place during the Fall/Winter months and are held in the back room at Cycle Alaska. Once a month we invite guests to come share their Bicycle Touring adventures with us and with you! If your trying to decide where to tour next or maybe wanting to plan your first Bicycle tour, then this is a great opportunity to come learn how others do it and ask questions. Come get inspired by the stories and photos of tours from all over the world!
All presentations start at 5:15 pm and last about an hour long with time for questions after. This is a free event, and snacks and beverages are provided. Hope to see you at the next one!

In June, 2019 the group rode across 5 countries in 20 days: Starting in Ohrid, Macedonia, cycling across Albania, Montenegro, and Croatia, and crossing the Adriatic into Italy. We enjoyed ancient cities, abundant fresh fruits and vegetables, and an intriguing blend of histories, cultures and religions. Join us as we reflect on the heat of the summer in the Balkans.

Touring Alaska and Yukon
Travels by Jim Rehfeldt
The Big Circle route from Skagway to Haines via Dawson City, the Top of the World Highway and Tok represents some of the finest and most challenging road touring in Alaska and Yukon. It offers remote wilderness travel, well-spaced bakeries (soon to include Tok), world class communities—i.e. has a restaurant and a grocery store—and spectacular scenery. It is a gift of nature to tour through mountain passes and spectacular boreal forest while taking in countless vistas, culminating with the endless ridge-lines of the Top of the World highway. It is also in our “Backyard”. Our tour was in May when the roads are quiet, the bugs are dormant, and the warmth of summer is (hopefully) overtaking the land.

Beginning in Jasper, Alberta (Canada), Bob Cita and Tom Bornstein pedaled south along the Continental Divide to Salida, Colorado.
