Women's Cycling Events
Hot Chocolate Ride
The Hot Chocolate ride is a women's group ride for all ability levels. It is shoulder season so we're going to hit the pavement for this month's ride.
We will ride part of the Gold Nugget Triathlon course along the Glenn Highway bike path. Plan on riding for about an hour and a half. After the ride, we will drink some yummy hot chocolate provided by Chugach Chocolates.
Where: Bartlett High School, Gymnasium parking lot
When: Tuesday, April 26th @ 6pm. Please arrive and be ready by 5:45 to sign waivers. We will try to leave by 6pm.
If you need a rental bike, the Trek store is offering a discount for Hot Chocolate Rides. Call or stop the Trek Store to check availability.
Bike for Women
Bike for Women is Alaska's premier all-women's time trial. Started in 2000, this annual event takes place on a 9 mile course that provides both challenging uphills and breath-catching downhills. Over 700 women of all ages and abilities participate in this fun competition, which serves as a great precursor to the Gold Nugget Triathlon and other summer races.
The Bike for Women is part of the Arctic Bike Club's road race division and is the main fund raiser for the club. And since 2014, the club has also been donating $3.00 of every registration to Let Every Woman Know Alaska--a charity dedicated to raising awareness and providing support for women living with gynecological cancers.
Gold Nugget Triathlon
Live Event - May 15th, 2022
Virtual Event - May 6th-16th, 2022
The Gold Nugget Triathlon mission is dedicated to improving the lives of women and girls through athletics.
The Gold Nugget Triathlon Board of Directors believes that our women’s triathlon is more than just a one-day event. Women and girls train for this event year-round and many sign up as a way of kick-starting a brand new training and fitness regime. They often find this to be a life changing experience. Mothers and daughters train for this event together, as do groups of friends and colleagues. All ages and skill levels are encouraged to participate!

The Bike Festival is your day! Come to ride bikes, make new friends, and have fun! If you joined us before, you may know how taxing 2, 90 minute clinics of riding can be. Consider signing up for ONE of the skills clinics and then round out your day with maintenance classes, shopping merchants in our Vendor Village, or getting a massage at the Self-Care station.
