yellowstone hike - paced bike ride - April 12, 2019

The WMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the WMC Liability Waiver, online registration is required for all in person WMC events.
Join this annual pre-season road bike trek into Yellowstone the weekend before the park is open to cars. The park service is preparing for the season so the roads will be plowed, but being flexible is key. Plan A is a SLOW MEANDERING bike ride from West Yellowstone to Gibbon Falls, intentionally taking about 4 hours for the 40-mile round trip. Plan B will be dictated by whatever Mother Nature is dishing out that morning. Come prepared for every combination of sun/snow/rain/wind/hot/cold. Base camp is the Kilgore Kompound in Island Park, which can comfortably hold about 15 to 20 people depending on the make-up of the group. Because of the limited space, RSVP priority will be given to WMC members.
