A Yellowstone National Park bike tour is an otherworldly experience especially if you happen to enjoy wildlife, geysers and fabulous landscapes!

This tour spends three days in the National Park and then four days in the lesser known, but equally compelling Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. We consider Day-7’s Beartooth Pass to be one of the top three climbs on any of our 30 USA bike touring itineraries!

Although our Yellowstone tour is a great tour for the upper-intermediate rider level, it’s optional rides offer BIG challenges for the every-freak-inch (E.F.I.) type rider. For example, in the five years that we have run this Yellowstone itinerary, only five riders have ever ridden E.F.I. of this tour!

NOTE: Quite a few more riders would have ridden E.F.I., but a combination of rain and wind shut down a group outside of Cooke City on Day-6 a few summers ago.

(Our group) completed the Yellowstone ride last week, it was a typical Lizard Head tour, pretty tough but doable, with some outstanding majestic scenery. (I wish) to comment on the outstanding team that lead our tour, DeAnn and Emily were such great guides, both pitched in to make sure that everything went smoothly, they are very professional and I did not hear one complaint from the group about the support. And it also helps to ride behind one of them after 5,000 plus feet of climbing.
