The website www.arcticbikeclub.org and www.arcticbike.org will be going through some yearly maintenance activities, enhancements, and updates over the first two weeks of February 2014, primarily during off hours. During these times sections of the website or the website itself may be periodically unavailable for extended periods of time as we prepare for the new season. Thank You.

It is expected that the home page, the calendar, and several other areas of the site will be significantly changing.

    • Note: Unfortunately the page requires you to use Internet Explorer as the MapOptix 5.2 software (currently on version 6.0 and supports other browsers) does not look like it has been updated since about 2005. The information is kept relatively current.

Glenn Highway Bike Path Re-Hab – Ship Creek Bridge Closed till 4/30

The bike path running along the Glenn Highway between Boniface Parkway and Birchwood will be undergoing maintenance in various stages this summer.

The pathway bridge crossing Ship Creek will be closed until April 30th while bridge work is under way. The will prevent cyclists and other users from completely following the path.

Though it can be walked around by walking along the shoulder of the Glenn Highway for approximately 100+ yards, it is not advised.

The majority of the other work this summer after the bridgework will occur at night with minimal impact to the public.
