Biking Grand Tetons

We’re not yet in biking season. Especially in Wyoming where winter has been in full swing as opposed to New York where we’ve had record warm temperatures). But I’d like to help you in you planning for spring/summer trips by suggesting you take a look at biking in the Grand Tetons.

Remember that excellent scene in Forrest Gump when he runs across country? Remember when he passes through the Tetons, running with his full beard and that dashing Nike sweatsuit? Well, that could be you, sans dim Southern accent…unless you have a dim Southern accent.

No matter. The skinny is this, that the Grand Teton National Park and the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway encompass approximately 100 miles of paved roads for your cycling enjoyment. You can get more info here (pdf) at the Park Service site and secure rentals (if you don’t have your own bikes) at Dornan’s in Moose. This really is one of the epic bike rides of all time, and is worth considering.
