ALASKA WALK AND BIKE CONFERENCE GOES VIRTUAL One advantage of the pandemic is that some conferences are going virtual, which means people who don’t have the time and/or money to travel can still participate. The 2020 Alaska Walk and Bike Conference is one of those. Check it out.
BIKE STATION AVAILABLE DOWNTOWN There is an awesome bike station downtown. It’s right next to the Morris Thompson visitors center and the park next door close to the bike path. If your bike isn’t working quite right, you don’t need to wait until you get home to work on it!
