Best of Luck Cycle Greater Yellowstone!

The first annual Cycle Great Yellowstone is now in West Yellowstone with approx. 700 riders getting ready tomorrow to start a 7-day, 460 mile traverse:

Since Mr denalicat is amongst the riders, I'm cheering them all on & reminding drivers to keep an eye out for the bike riders.

"The first great ride in the last best place."

Here's hoping the haze from the fires doesn't get worse.

Well, heypaula, you'll have 700 bicyclists + support team spending the night tonight in Ennis after their ride. Will be a tent city just north of your town.

Can you please do something about blowing the haze from the fires away LOL!?

denalicat - most of the smoke has cleared out this morning - a lot better than it was yesterday, anyway!

Sounds like it will be a fun time in town tonight - Enjoy!

Good luck! Seems to be the weekend for extreme activities that I will NOT be participating in lol - Grand Teton Relay was yesterday covering 160 miles from Ashton, ID up through Island Park ending Teton Village, Wy. I had coworkers involved in this effort. It was a pretty hot day. Frankly, I would rather be biking.:). Hope everyone's doing well w/the biking.

We drove down and took a look at the cyclists' campground this afternoon - that's quite an operation! Very well organized from the looks of it. Good luck to Mr. denalicat tomorrow - that's a long ride with a lot of uphill mileage just getting out of here over Norris Hill!

Riders are making it into Livingston to take over the town park- there was a steep 25 mile climb before the 10 mile drop into town that they say was killer. In 95F temps too. Whew!
