What is the Clean Air Challenge?

The American Lung Association’s Clean Air Challenge is Alaska's premier cycling event! Our four different route distances as well as a Cycle Your Way option ensure that the event has something for everyone from experienced cyclists to those new to distance riding. Characterized by Alaska’s stunning landscape, the in-person ride begins and ends at the beautiful Talkeetna Lodge. This iconic event is a great way to kick-off your cycling season.

Cycle Your Way allows cyclists the flexibility to choose their route, pace, intensity, and who they ride with. This new option is customizable for families, advanced cyclists, and casual riders. We are so fortunate to have an abundance of amazing rides in our backyard. Strap on your helmet and Cycle Your Way.
