Overview: The Fall Cycle Tour is a favorite of locals and visitors alike. This 60-mile round trip biking tour runs between West Yellowstone and the Upper Geyser Basin in Yellowstone National Park.
When: The Fall Cycle Tour typically is held in September each year.
Where: The tour starts out in West Yellowstone at the Visitor’s Center on Yellowstone Avenue.
Details: Beginning at the Visitor’s Center in town, riders move to the western gate of Yellowstone National Park and follow the beautiful Madison River to Madison Junction. They will then approach the only real climb on the route, Firehole Hill. Continuing on to Old Faithful, riders get to enjoy the fascinating attractions along the river as they pass famous thermal areas of the park.
All the participants in the Fall Cycle Tour hope to see Old Faithful erupt before taking off again to return to West Yellowstone by the same route in reverse. But they won’t be hungry as they wait for the spouting geyser to let loose. There’s a feed station at Old Faithful, as well as at Madison Junction. Patrols are around who can take you back to West Yellowstone if the going gets too rough for you, and also another patrol who can help with flats or needed repairs.
