    Family cruise to Alaska, need some "fat" time to balance family time

    Coming up from NorCal on a cruise to Ketchikan, Juneau and Skagway with the family, wondered if you guys could recommend any Fat rentals and associated day rides in any of the above ports 'o call? Thanks for your help.
    Feel free to PM me or whatever.

    Don't know about the southeast communities but you can rent a fatbike in Los Anchorage. I believe Chain Reaction Cycles (creators of 9:zero:7) rent some and you can rent from a local legend Billy K. at Arctic Bicycles.

    Enjoy the trip. The weather had been pretty phenomenal this summer.

    Just got back a couple weeks ago from a cruise to those cities.....It was unbeleivable...words can't express how amazing the trip was...
    there is a store in SKAGWAY called SOCKEYE CYCLES.....really cool people ....they have a couple there but give them a call maybe they can hook you up....

    Asked the same question, for the same reason, a few years ago.

    All I can say about the whole thing is? Damn.

    Skagway? Rent a car, drive to Whitehorse Yukon Territory (bring yer passport) and hook up with the good folks at Boreale Mountain Biking.

    They rent bikes, guides, the whole bit.

    We did a guide, not cause we really needed any help per se, but it sure was nice to have the local knowledge, instead of going "hmm, okay, which way do we turn now? Is this trail cooler, or that one?"

    The drive over was worth it alone, the trails are fantastic, yeah, good stuff.

    Otherwise, enjoy the FatBoat.
