2014 Day 1Day 1: Riverton to Dubois (78 miles)

We begin our route going through the Wind River Indian Reservation before parallelling the gorgeous Wind River as we head into Dubois.

2014 Day 2Day 2: Dubois to Jackson (85 miles)

This is a tough day but the scenery is especially stunning. If the pedal up to Togwotee Pass doesn’t take your breath away, the view as you head down the other side just might. Stop at the Togwotee Overlook to take in the view of the Tetons in the distance.

NOTE: At this time we are working with Grand Teton National Park about travel in the Park. There are issues due to construction that may require some vehicle shuttling.  Details will be posted as soon as they are finalized.

In Jackson: We DO NOT have outdoor camping. We will be at the community ice rink for indoor camping only. Several hotel operators are offering discounts to Tour de Wyoming participants who prefer getting a motel instead. Go to the Lodging page for more information on these options.

2014 Day 3Day 3: Jackson to Pinedale (77 miles)

We head south out of Jackson and pedal first along the Snake River and then the Hoback River. The scenery is stunning in the canyon. Then we pass through the community of Bondurant, climb a bit more, and then come out into the vast Green River Basin as we head for Pinedale for the evening.  Before we reach Pinedale there are two especially interesting big game overpass structures that we pass under on the highway. These were recently constructed to allow for passage of big game.

2014 Day 4Day 4: Pinedale to Farson (60 miles)

We head south out of Pinedale and cross the Green River Basin with the craggy Wind River Mountains paralleling our route to the east and the vast sagebrush basin to the west.  This area is crucial winter range for a number of species from elk, pronghorn and mule deer as well as the Greater sage-grouse.

2014 Day 5Day 5: Farson to Lander (77 Miles)

For this day, we begin by heading east towards South Pass.  South Pass was a major feature of the Oregon Trail, traveled by thousands of westward emigrants during the mid-19th century. Segments of the Trail are still visible and are highlighted at Historical Marker pullouts. Once through South Pass, we turn north and then slightly west and pass by the stunningly beautiful Red Canyon before the final hilly nine miles into Lander.

Day 6Day 6: Lander to Riverton (32 miles)

Our final day is a back-roads route first through the lovely Lyons Valley and then through the small town of Hudson. From there we follow the Rendezvous Road into Riverton.
