Bike Denali offers Trek Marlin 5 hardtail mountain bikes in a wide variety of sizes. The bikes are equipped with all of the essentials for a healthy day of riding in the Park, including : helmet, lock, rear rack, high-vis day pannier (enough space to fit a jacket and camera/rain gear), Emergency repair kit (spare tube, pump, tire levers), high-vis handlebar pouch w./ bear spray, padded seat cover (optional), pant leg cuffs, and emergency rain poncho. Water bottle holder mounted on bike frame, water bottle not included.
For an extended bicycle trip into Denali, Bike Denali can outfit bikes with sets of Ortlieb Classic panniers and a handlebar cradle. This allows riders to haul a bikepacking outfit for overnight and multi-day excursions into the Park. While having a light weight set of rain gear and a compact sleeping bag makes the trip a pleasure, Bike Denali also recommends easily packable 2-person tents, compact campstoves, cooking kits, and sleeping pads. All of these items are available locally for sale or rent, check our Resource section.
Bike Denali rents Burley cargo trailers for visitors who want to carry backpacks instead of panniers. This provides for easy access hiking in Denali’s backcountry, from the bike. A reminder to visitors: follow Park rules and remove bikes 25 yards from the road and out of sight when leaving a bike. Do not leave food or camp items with the bike unattended.
