The West Yellowstone Old Faithful Cycle Tour is a terrific way to wind down a summer of riding and a unique way to experience Yellowstone National Park. Fall is a gorgeous time to be in Yellowstone, the elk are bugling, the aspens have turned to gold, and the thermal areas are relatively free of crowds. The supported ride is 60 miles round-trip, with options available for one-way travel. Cyclists on the tour can take advantage of two feed stations, three sag wagons, on-course bike mechanics, and end the day with a group meal.
This tour is limited by the National Park Service to the first 350 riders that complete the online registration. You may register online at the official website. Yellowstone National Park passes are required for the ride.
