You’ll need a little riding experience to join in on this, but it won’t be super hard, and it will take you on an “in-town” ride that only a few people experience!

When: March 24, 2024, start at 11am

Where: Meet at the back entrance to Pioneer Park (by the pedestrian bridge near the Carlson Center)

Estimated tour time: 10 mile loop; 1.5-2hrs, depending on the pace of the group.

Description: We will ride along the river to Peger Road, then take the Johansen bike path to University Avenue. Next we will take the trail next to the railroad tracks over to the slough, and then cruise along the slough back to downtown across from Morris Thompson Visitor Center. Finally, we head back along the river path through downtown to where the ride started from. There will be just a couple sections that have ice under the bridges that are super easy to deal with.

The ride is free, but you’ll need to be a member of the Fairbanks Cycle Club. Temporary memberships are available.

Temperature cut-off: The ride will be canceled if it’s 15F below or colder at 9 a.m. according to this weather station (scroll down to “latest observation”).

Helmets: Always required for FCC rides.

Dogs: No dogs please.

Leader: Matt Layral
