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 - - An annual event for kids, families, enthusiasts, and hard-core go-fast types. Here's details and registration info.
Tour of Fairbanks Road Race - - A five stage road race. Check for details as the race draws closer.
Edward Jones Points Series - - Earn points by volunteering, being race director at one of the races, and by racing in select races. Read about it here.
Rocky Dirt Series - - In memory of our friend Rocky Reifenstuhl, we have the Rocky Dirt Series.  Here's the points structure and info page.  It's a series of five fun, off-road races.
Ride Descriptions / Schedules
Chena Hot Springs Bicycle Classic - - An annual event for kids, families, enthusiasts, and hard-core go-fast types.
Tuesday Night Mountain Bike Rides - - Also known as "Doug Rides" after their namesake, Doug Burnside, the Tuesday Night Rides (see the PDF schedule) 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.
Dirt Divas - - Women who ride mountain bikes on questionable terrain.  Meet Tuesdays at 6PM at Goldstream Sports. Here's the schedule.
Women on Wheels - - A moderate to fast-paced series of road rides for women who like to test themselves. The ride schedule (PDF format) 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 (PDF) for special rides, details on course, miles, meeting places and more.
SCUM Rides - - Sounds bad, but the rides are fun. This group of men meet on UAF campus twice a week, and go at a pace that works for everyone. You'll have to attend a SCUM ride to find out where the name "SCUM" comes from.
Group Road Rides - - For you go-faster-than-the-other-guy types, there's the "Group Road Rides" which are intended for road race training. The group starts fast and then goes faster. 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 the second week in April, this group meets 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.
