Pedaler’s Pub & Grille, the unusually named bicycle touring company, announced a new craft beer and biking tour through Alaska. Craft Beers & Roadhouses takes cyclists and adventurous travelers through Alaska’s most awe-inspiring locations, with stops at craft breweries along the way.

 

The 10-day tour takes cyclists from Anchorage to Denali National Park, across the Denali Highway, concluding with a glacier walk at Sheep Mountain. Each evening before dinner, travelers sit down to enjoy a beer tasting. Highlights include a stop in Talkeetna, an eclectic town and home to Denali Brewery. Here, guests stay at a homestead that was one of the first near Denali. During the first leg of the tour, guests visit three micro breweries along with tastings from locations as far as Baranof Island in the Alaskan panhandle. Next, cyclists pass through the volcanoes of Wangrell Range, then between the Chugach and Talkeetna Mountain Ranges. The excursion concludes with a walk across the icefields of Matanuska Glacier. Cyclists pedal about 60 miles per day along paved roads with some stretches on dirt roads. The terrain is mountainous, though the trails follow gentle grades.

 

The 10-day trip offers departures through the summer months. The per person cost is $4,250, and includes accommodations, most meals, evening beer tastings, tour guides, daily route directions and maps, sightseeing and cultural activities and bike rental.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
