    Not sure on the actual distance from where you are; but the Ester Dome trails off Goldstream Rd/Ester Dome are amazing. Stop into Goldstream Sports to ask about how to get there.
    Is Birch Hill still open for biking? That's another fun place to ride.
    There's also a bike park off Goldstream Road next to the Lions Club if you want to work on your skills.

    AFB would be Eielson, Between North Pole and Eielson is the Chena Lakes rec area. It has mushing trails, winter, for a scenic ride, not technical mtb but good exercise.

    Wickersham Cr. trail, ~ hour north on the Elliot, access to the White mtn rec area.

    The ester dome single track is in great shape right now, and is easy to find - its the first large pull off on Ester Dome road on the left hand side once you start going up hill steeply. If you reach henderson rd you have gone too far. I attached GPX files for the inner and outer loops, the inner loop has the connection to the trailhead.

    There are a lot of the fairbanks area trails can be found on trailmapper -> TrailMapper Home

    Have fun!
