FAQs

Trip Changes

Our itineraries are an approximation of our trips. Trek Travel strives to offer each and 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.

  • Rider Type | 2
  • Average Daily Mileage | 27
  • Terrain | Flat
  • Average Daily Elevation | 735 ft.

On all of our vacations, Trek Travel strives to find quiet, paved secondary roads or bike paths to experience a region; busy roads are avoided as much as possible. 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. Those who wish to ride every mile but are concerned about their physical ability may want to try our electric bike option–you still get a workout but can climb alongside even the strongest rider. Type 2+ Riders will enjoy the extra mileage the avid route options offer. 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 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! And, if you have traveled with us before, you know that your guides can always find some hills for you to climb if you want the extra challenge. See the day by day itinerary for specific daily ride distance and elevation options.

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. See Included In The Trip Price for more information. 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)

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

For an additional fee you may request to upgrade to the Trek Emonda SLR with Shimano Di2 Electronic shifting or Bontrager Aeolus carbon wheels for the ultimate riding experience. Contact our trip consultants for more details.
