    cycling around jackson, wy

    i've posted a few times about a trip i'm taking out west (we leave tomorrow...if we get our new car in time to get a hitch put on it today).

    originally, i thought i'd bike yellowstone. now, i think i'll stick to shorter day-trips thru the tetons. i will probably have a back pack on me so i can stop and fish or take picks or otherwise enjoy the country.

    i'm looking for any and all advice about road cycling the area. I've looked up the location of a couple of bike shops. they will be my first stops. i've looked up some rides on routeslip.com. i've looked into the cycling rules, etc. for the tetons.

    what else do i need to look into, consider, etc.

    anyone in the area know of any group rides? i'm a noob who rides in the flatlands....i'm not looking for any rides that are "advanced" [or even 'moderate' for that matter].

    any advice and what to pack/bring?

    Your exact opposite is the Televangelist.

    Other personalities you would probably get along with are the Capitalist Pig, the Smartass, and the Sociopath.

    One of the most fantastic drives I've ever done was from Jackson, through the Tetons park and through Yellowstone.

    The only thing I can tell you is that the altitude is up there....about 6,5-7,000ft and virtually no towns to stop at.

    Be prepared!
