We start our trip heading west out of Jackson Hole, WY and take on the incredible Teton Pass within our first 30 miles. If you would prefer to warm up a few days first, we can shuttle to the top. We could make time on day 8 to give it another try. After Teton Pass, we are on the flats for quite a distance with stops in rural Idaho towns, beautiful Mesa Falls, pass by spectacular farmlands, and the Targhee National Forest. On to West Yellowstone for a great nights rest before starting our sightseeing experiences of Yellowstone National Park. On this trip, we will take as much time as desired to take in all of the park's natural beauty, enjoy short daily hikes and pack picnic lunches.

Our first day in the park, we will experience the world famous Old Faithful, take a short detour past the rushing Firehole Falls and the Grand Prismatic Spring.

The following day takes us to the northern territory of the park where we will pass through Mammoth Hot Springs. We head east out of the park and ride the most beautiful highway in America, as stated by Charles Kuralt. We will spend the night in Red Lodge, MT. We will shuttle to the east entrance of Yellowstone, ride again through the park by Lake Yellowstone and end the day at Headwaters Lodge, between Yellowstone and Grand Tetons NPs. We will ride the Grand Teton National Park, which features the 40-mile long Teton range with eight jagged peaks reaching over 12,000 feet each.

Once back in the Grand Teton Valley we can spend our last day and a half on planned cycling routes or opt for short excursions of hikes, rafting or fishing. We then say our goodbyes and head to the airport.
