Badass Bike Ride Adventure
This spectacular bike ride is a favorite among Alaskans. Sorry locals, the secret's out! Claimed by some of my guests as “the most beautiful bike ride” they’ve been on. Panoramic mountain views, breathtaking natural beauty and OneWheel riding will be highlights of our adventure. If we are lucky, we may see wildlife; I'll be on the lookout. ---- We will begin our adventure on bikes at Bird Creek Campground, and head to Bird Point, a scenic lookout. We’ll make our way through nature on a paved bike path rated as easy with some elevation changes. The trip allows plenty of time for sightseeing/photos. On our return to base camp, two OneWheels are available for a fun alternative mode of transportation. Everyone gets to try it out. If time allows, we can celebrate our successful adventure at a nearby bar/restaurant. ---- Wildlife varies depending on the season, but it's not uncommon to see bald eagles, moose and dall sheep in the area. Whales come during the summer months. Wild animals can be elusive, but that's what makes it so special when you spot them. A wildlife conservation center is only 25 minutes away if you are missing some animals on your punch list. Looking for more of an intense bike ride or an alternative date/time? Private bookings are allowed and encouraged. :)

Feel free to bring your own lunch. ***Please Note: there are 18 steps up to my studio (and the bathroom)*** We will all have a chance to talk with each other and learn a little about each other’s travels.
