Meet your guides at 11:00 AM at the Jackson Hole & Greater Yellowstone Visitor Center which is located a couple of blocks north of the town square on the National Elk Refuge. After a short shuttle to Grand Teton National Park, we'll get right down to business! We will make sure you are comfortable on your bike, then fuel up with a hearty picnic lunch before a leisurely pedal through this magnificent park. Now is the time to slow down and take it all in. Savor views of the majestic Tetons and keep your eyes peeled for elk, pronghorn, and maybe even a grizzly sighting. Stop at one of the many viewpoints along the way and allow the sound of the rushing river and the pure beauty of the wilderness around you set the stage for the week ahead. Our ride ends at the serene Jackson Lake Lodge at the north end of the park. After getting settled into your room, be sure to make your way to the lobby for a jaw-dropping panoramic view of the majestic Mount Moran towering above Jackson Lake. Tonight, we will gather at the Lodge for social hour and dinner and your guides will tell you all about the adventures the rest of the week will bring.

The stops will include a geyser walk at Old Faithful, a delicious picnic by the Firehole River, the majestic waterfalls of the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, and the Hayden Valley where bison and other wildlife roam.

If you're lucky, you may see a herd of pronghorns or bison roaming the grasslands known as Antelope Flats as you pedal on to lunch at a little known cafe with fantastic sandwiches and views to match. If you are up for more miles after lunch, you'll follow the bike path past the National Elk Refuge and cruise through downtown Jackson en route to the final climb up to Spring Creek Ranch, our home for the next three nights.

Rider Level: 2 Recreational?

AVERAGE DAILY MILEAGE:

TOTAL MILES:
143 miles
AVERAGE DAILY ELEVATION:
983 feet
TOTAL ELEVATION:
4,915 feet
TERRAIN: FLAT
The terrain is flat! Yes, it's true. Relax and admire mountain views as we pedal along the valley floor that is Jackson Hole, utilizing a good many bike paths along the way. The catch is that we do have a nice little climb to get to Spring Creek Ranch, and we are riding at an elevation of 6,300 ft, which can leave some people a little winded. Arrive a few days early and be sure to hydrate! Our Yellowstone bike tour is best suited for our Type 2 Riders. Our Trek Travel guides can also easily accommodate Type 1 Riders, who seek less mileage or fewer uphills, with a boost in the van. Type 3+ Riders will enjoy the extra mileage the avid route options offer. Those who wish to ride every mile but are concerned about their ability to do so may want to try our electric bike option–you still get a workout but can climb alongside even the strongest rider.
NON-RIDING ACTIVITIES:
On most Trek Travel trips, we offer non-riding options for riders who want to take the afternoon off, or travel companions who want to spend little or no time in the saddle. Some of these options may need to be scheduled before your trip–please contact one of our Trip Consultants for more information. Expenses and/or related transportation to these activities may not be included in the trip price. Some non-riding options on this trip are:
  • Whitewater Rafting
  • Hiking
  • Yellowstone Tour with wildlife expert
  • Horseback riding (not included)
  • Fly fishing (not included)
  • Rodeo (not included)
  • Spa (not included)

See itinerary for specific daily ride distances and elevation options. On all of our vacations, Trek Travel seeks to find quiet, paved, secondary roads or bike paths to experience a region; busy roads are avoided as much as possible. Our itineraries are an approximation of our trips. Trek Travel strives to offer every guest a vacation of a lifetime on every trip. At times routes, hotels, activities, etc. listed here may change at the discretion of the trip designer or guides to improve the trip experience.

We recommend that you fly into Jackson Hole Airport (JAC) and stay in the town of Jackson (not at Jackson Lake Lodge, which is 45 minutes away).

Your Trek Travel guides will meet you at the Jackson Hole & Greater Yellowstone Visitor Center (532 N Cache St, Jackson, WY 83001) at 11:00 AM on the first day of the trip. After a short shuttle, you’ll be treated to a picnic lunch prepared by your guides followed by a personal bike fitting to ensure a smooth and comfortable ride. Your guides will then present an overview of the day’s riding options and off we’ll go! Please have your first day’s riding gear handy and separate from your other luggage to facilitate the bike fitting and ride.

If you will be late for the pick-up or are going to miss it altogether, please inform your guides. You will receive an email a week before the trip start with their names and contact details. If you cannot reach them, please call our first hotel, Jackson Lake Lodge (307-543-2811), and leave a message with your expected arrival time and contact details.

Planning For Your Trip

Packing and Weather

Summer temperatures are perfectly mild, ranging from the low 40s to low 80s on a warm day. Evenings tend to cool off, often requiring a sweatshirt or jacket, while days are pure mountain summer bliss. Because we are near the mountains, be prepared for the occasional afternoon thunderstorm.

Before and After Your Trip

before

Before: Jackson, Wyoming

There's plenty to see and do in this famous Western town. For starters, take your picture under the famed antler arches that grace the town square. Then hop in the saddle at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar; grab a beer at the Mangy Moose; and browse the countless galleries, boutiques, and specialty shops in this charming little town. From here you are minutes away from endless outdoor adventures, anything from fly-fishing to horseback riding to hiking in Grand Teton National Park. We recommend the following accommodations for your pre-trip hotel.

after

After: Yellowstone National Park

We'll introduce you to this glorious park during the trip, but recommend that you stay longer so you can dive a little deeper into its treasured landsape. Yellowstone is host to an overabundance of ecological treasures, from geothermal features to every ecosytem imaginable. Here, geysers live in harmony with both volcanoes and hundreds of endangered mammals, reptiles and birds. Its photographs alone inspired the United States Government to establish it as our very first national park in 1872, and its natural beauty has been preserved ever since. We recommend the following accommodations for your post-trip hotel.
