Race Descriptions
Here's a selection of races for the season. Not all races necessarily appear here, so you would do well to check the monthly calendar, above. Also, some races are also rides, and some rides are also races. Nothing like being vague, huh?
Chena Hot Springs Bicycle Classic - - A ride for families and enthusiasts, and a race for you hard-core-go-fast types. It even has it's own info page.
Tour of Fairbanks Road Race - - A five stage road race, involving hills, flats, road races, time trials and even a criterium on the North Pole Speedway track. There's even a Triathlete Training Package available, and a fun Sportif ride on Saturday, then a banquet!
Points Series - - Accumulate victory points by directing a series race, volunteering in a race, and (imagine!) racing in a race. Read all about it.
Rocky Dirt Series - - In memory of Rocky Reifenstuhl, we introduce the Rocky Dirt Series. Here's the details, man.
Ride Descriptions / Schedules
Here is most of, but probably not all of, our rides. You would do well to look at our season calendar to make sure you get the full picture. Some of our rides are also races, and some of the races are also rides, so be sure you look around.
Chena Hot Springs Bicycle Classic - - Both a ride and race for kids, families, enthusiasts, and hard-core-go-fast types. Here's the details.
Tuesday Night Mountain Bike Rides - - Also known as "Doug Rides" after their namesake, Doug Burnside, the Tuesday Night Rides are attended by mostly men and not enough women. Check the ride descriptions for ride ability levels, length, projected durations, etc. Rides tend to be more difficult as the season wears on. Here's the PDF with details.
Dirt Divas - - Women who ride mountain bikes over all terrain.  Tuesdays at 6PM at Goldstream Sports.
Women on Wheels - - A moderate to fast-paced series of road rides for women who like to test themselves. The ride schedule gives a lot of details about rides, mileages and meeting places.
Ladies of Leisure - - A decidedly mellower version of the WOW rides. Focus is on fun and sticking together as a group. See the LOL schedule for special rides, details on course, miles, meeting places and more.
SCUM Rides - - Sounds bad, but the rides are fun. This clean group of well-attired men meet on UAF campus twice a week, and go at a pace that works for (almost) everyone. You'll have to attend a SCUM ride to find out where the name "SCUM" comes from.
Wednesday Night Road Rides - - This a group that does "50% training, 50% social", according to the ride coordinator. Meet at Mushers Hall at 6:30, figure on 20 miles.
Saturday Morning Group Road Rides - - And then there's the "Group Road Rides" which are intended for road race training. The group starts fast and then turns the screws. Anyone who wants to learn and ride hard is welcome, provided you don't mind getting dropped. No offense intended, that's just the way it goes.
Sunday Winter Rides - - Starting the first week in November and going until early April, this group meets at noon at Ivory Jacks parking lot out in Goldstream. Soft, churned snow means a slow ride, hard pack means a pretty good pace. Rides are on trail as much as possible. Figure anywhere from one to five hours, your choice. Everyone is welcome.
