Bicycle Yellowstone This Weekend

cycling-yellowstone1If you’ve always wanted to take a great bike ride in Yellowstone but were intimidated by the traffic, now is your chance to join a large group of cyclists riding from West to Old Faithful and back. There is no restrictions on what kind of bike you can use (except it can’t have a motor,) and you don’t have to be a certain age.

That said, the length of the ride is 57 miles over rolling terrain and the average elevation is over 6,000 feet, so it’s probably for people who are pretty fit. Food stations will be available at Madison Junction and at Old Faithful and a “sag wagon” will be available to pick up those whose “eyes are bigger than their stomachs.”

Pre-registration is required, so you have to get squared away before you come. For more info on cost and registration, etc. call 406-599-4465. They will take care of everything for you. Don’t wait. The ride is this Saturday and remember, pre-registration is required. See you in West.

Snowmobile Expo Next Weekend

four1The West Yellowstone Snowmobile expo will be happening March 13 – 15th in West Yellowstone.  This is a spectacular long weekend filled with racing, unveiling of all the new (2010) sleds, and a chance to meet with countless after-market manufacturers.  If you are into snowmobiles  –  and especially if you are into mountain riding  –  this is the most important show of the year.   Don’t miss it.

If you can’t find lodging in West Yellowstone (which you probably can’t at this late date) lodging is available still in Island Park (over the hill 20 minutes south.)  Check with Macks Inn resort, Island Park village, or Phillips Lodge for more information.
