Denali National Park
Though the outing takes some advanced prep and plenty of gear (rain gear is a must), biking the road that runs into Denali National Park (or, even, just a short section) provides plenty of up-close-and-personal time in the park. (Yes, that includes close encounters with bears. Bring bear spray. And keep a watch out. Really.) The best time to pedal on in: the weekend before the tour and shuttle buses start running. With no bus traffic on the road, the road turns into a big party for bikers. Bring camping gear and hang with everybody else in one of the park campgrounds. Essential gear for the experience: enough food and drinks to share with new friends. Pro tip: get there on the early side of the weekend (Thursday, if possible). Biking the road has turned into a much-loved event for AK cyclists.
