bike touring: jackson, wy loop

This 270-mile loop from Jackson, WY takes us through 2 national parks and 3 states before the height of the summer tourist season. Enjoy moderate days on the bike with plenty of sightseeing and time for enjoying gorgeous scenery. This is a self-supported trip, and there are a couple of steep climbs. (Note that the route climbs 12,000+ ft; the WMC website only allows a vertical gain of 10,000 ft.) You should therefore plan on riding a touring bike or a rig with very low gearing. We plan to camp in national park service facilities and RV parks, but you can make lodging arrangements each night if you'd prefer indoor facilities. I'll be leading this tour with Rusty Gardner. Contact me if you're interested and I'll send a detailed description of each day.
