It was a 2-month sea kayaking trip through Southeast Alaska that became a life-changing experience for Sockeye Cycle owner Thom Ely. In 1987 Thom moved to Haines full-time and bought an existing bike shop and in 1988 our first tours were offered.
Today, we are the oldest operating full-service bicycle business in Alaska. Our touring expertise is in our own region of Southeast Alaska and Northern Canada. We are staffed with well qualified seasonal guides and veteran Alaskan locals and offer a variety of tours ranging from a few hours in duration to day trips and 11-day excursions. Whether you take a day tour or one of our extended adventures, we guarantee that you will get a taste of the spirit and hospitality of the North as only a local company can show you.
Our most popular rental bike is the all day mountain bike or hybrid bike. Hardtrail mountain bikes or hybrid bikes are great options for exploring town and nearby trails.
If you choose to go electric, we have fantastic e-bike options with the all-purpose Trek Verve 2+ model.
