The Greater Yellowstone Coalition (GYC) has revealed that its "Cycle Greater Yellowstone" 2014 route – which features 465 miles, five mountain passes, and nearly 20,000 feet in elevation gain – will be passing through Pinedale this summer.
The Sublette County Library invites you to join members of the Tourism Board and GYC communications director Jeff Welsch at 6:30 pm on Thursday, April 17th for a Meet & Greet where he will answer questions for the community about the second-annual "First Great Ride in the Last Best Place" set for Aug. 17-23.
The fully supported tour will begin in Teton Village, Wyo., and conclude a week later in Grand Teton National Park and includes overnight stops in Victor, Idaho, and Hoback Junction, Pinedale, Lander (two nights) and Dubois, Wyo.
"Nearly 500 riders from 42 states are already registered," Welsch said. "More than 800 riders and 100 volunteers are expected for what is already the fourth-largest multi-day bicycle tour in North America.
Last year, more than 660 riders and 80 volunteers from 44 states and five countries participated in the inaugural Cycle Greater Yellowstone, which began in West Yellowstone, Mont., and ended in Red Lodge, Mont.
