Wydaho Group Bike Rides
August 30th - September 3rd
Join a “no drop” group ride to learn and explore the Teton Valley trails with local Wydaho Rendezvous, Ride Leaders. Please read the ride descriptions, choose an appropriate ride to match your preferred level/pace, and then sign up for each ride in the schedule online, so we can plan accordingly. Ride schedule is subject to change – be sure to check the website closer to the festival and check in at the group ride check-in location at the festival.
There will be rides for the smaller rippers in your family. See “Kid’s Rides” in the group ride master schedule. The ride rating scale for the kids is 1 Paw: Your little buddy can walk confidently with a kick bike or pedal with training wheels. 2 Paw: Your little rider can pedal confidently on the pavement, without training wheels, and on easy, flat singletrack. 3 Paw: Your little mountain biker is starting to hit some trails with small climbs and short descents. 4 Paw: Your little shredder is feeling confident on singletrack with berms, rollers, and small table tops (but not jumping).
High-altitude, breath-taking scenery – be prepared
Recommendations: Each rider is responsible for his or her own well-being, and to ride within his or her skill-level and ability-level. Be sure your bike is in good working order, wear a helmet (required), bring plenty of water/food, an extra layer (including a waterproof shell), sunglasses & sunblock, basic first aid supplies, and basic tools/supplies to deal with mechanical issues on the trail. Bear spray – and the knowledge of how to use it – is recommended. Bear sightings are infrequent but possible.
For Teton Valley or Teton Pass group rides: Carpooling to the trailhead is encouraged and will be required for areas with limited parking. If you have a vehicle capable of hauling multiple bikes or people, please considering offering to drive to the group rides on our Volunteer page. Carpools will be organized at the designated meeting spot.
