*PLEASE CALL OUT TO PEOPLE YOU PASS*This is a good reminder for all bikers. It’s wonderful to be zipping along on your bike, but remember that you can accidentally scare people or, worse, accidentally run into them. This is also true if you are passing slower cyclists, especially kids.
Shared from Heather Andrulli
PSA for bicycle riders: PLEASE call out to pedestrians you are about to pass from behind: “Trail!” “On your right(left)!” “Behind you!”
Anything that warns the person in front of you. Passing cars make noise, I may be lost in thought, some may be listening to music, a dog might be old and getting deaf, etc. This summer I have been startled out of my wits, unknowingly veered into a bicyclists path, and saw my dog barely miss being hit by a bike. I have been passed by many high quality bikes ridden by people with expensive safety gear maintaining a good form and biking at an athletic pace. Only once has someone warned me of their presence. 99% have gone past me at a pace fast enough to cause injury to me if they hit me. Silently. Inches from me.
Please pass this along. We pedestrians should be safe walking on the sidewalk. All I ask is a heads up warning.

*WILCOX SETS FKT ON AK PIPELINE ROUTE*Anchorage cyclist Lael Wilcox sets an FKT for biking the length of the Alaska Pipeline (while staying on public roads)!
–Wilcox, 34, left the general store in Deadhorse on Tuesday morning with the goal of setting the fastest-known time (FKT) along the route.
She reached the marina in Valdez a few minutes before 4 a.m. Saturday.
Total time: 3 days, 18 hours and 47 minutes, which included 10 or 11 hours of sleep.–
–During the peak of production in 1988, oil flowed the length of the 800-mile pipeline in 4.5 days, according to an April 2021 report by Alyeska Pipeline. In these days of waning production, it moves at a very un-Wilcox rate of 18 days.–

*UAF GREEN BIKES HAS SERVICES*Are you a UAF student or professor? If so, take advantage of the services UAF Green Bikes has to offer.
UAF Green Bikes
Do your brakes not feel as effective as they once were? Does it take longer to stop than usual when you brake?
The most likely problem is brake pad wear. Eventually, you have to replace your brake pads because the constant rubbing of the pad against the rim of your wheel wears it down over time.
This is one of the many things we can do for you at UAF Green Bikes! Stop by the shop in the Wood Center anytime from 10 am to 6 pm to get your pads changed.
Happy Biking Nanooks!

FCC Tour of Fairbanks Returns in Virtual Format!

The Fairbanks Cycle Club will again be holding the Tour of Fairbanks cycle race, and like last year, this version will be virtual.
The Tour of Fairbanks is traditionally an in-person five-stage road race. But the pandemic has turned many things on its head, including the Tour. But last year’s virtual Tour of Fairbanks went really well, so Race Director Christopher Knott has decided to offer it again. Road racing will take place July 8-11.

FCC Tour of Fairbanks Returns in Virtual Format

The Fairbanks Cycle Club will again be holding the Tour of Fairbanks cycle race, and like last year, this version will be virtual.

The Tour of Fairbanks is traditionally an in-person five-stage road race. But the pandemic has turned many things on its head, including the Tour. But last year’s virtual Tour of Fairbanks went really well, so Race Director Christopher Knott has decided to offer it again. Road racing will take place July 8-11.

While this is a race, the main purpose is to encourage riders to safely get out into the community and visit local businesses. It also gives Fairbanksans something healthy to train for and look forward to during this pandemic. So, if races aren’t usually your thing, consider signing up for the motivation and to help our local businesses.

This virtual race will feature five stages in various locations featured in the soon-to-be-released Race Bible. Each race will be over four days and will have five routes.

All times will be recorded on Strava, so to compete, all riders will need to have a Strava account and a GPS watch, cycling computer, or the Strava app on a smartphone. Basic Strava accounts are free. Sign up at: www.strava.com/

Registration will be held July 7 at Goldstream Sports from noon to 7 p.m.

The series costs $40 plus FCC membership (to cover insurance costs). The club offers annual individual and family memberships or day memberships. People selecting the day membership must purchase one for each day they are competing.

For more information see: www.fairbankscycleclub.org/races/tour-of-fairbanks/

Questions about the race can be sent to Christopher Knott ([email protected]).

*INTERSECTION PROJECT AND BIKES*The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner did an update on GARS, the project to upgrade the Steese/Rich/Airport intersection near the Fort Wainwright gate. It’s an interesting concept that should make that intersection safer for all involved, but it’s still just in the planning stages.
From the story:
Grouping conflicts will also improve pedestrian safety, according to Stone. “Pedestrian’s heads don’t need to be on a swivel,” he said. A few questions were raised about pedestrian safety options for bikers. Eric Muehling asked whether DOT is planning to construct a new bike path with the project. According to Stone they are not, but there will be sidewalks within the intersection. The Department is not planning on installing any pedestrian push buttons, which Muehling suggested that they consider.
