Wyoming, with its vast expanses of untouched landscapes and stunning mountain ranges, stands as an enticing playground for cyclists seeking adventure, challenge, and breathtaking views. Whether you’re a road cyclist, gravel grinder, or mountain biking enthusiast, the Cowboy State has something to offer for every pedal-powered explorer.  The Team at Strambecco takes pride in finding and describing the best cycling experiences (events, races, multi-day) across the country.  Strambecco’s rating criteria for the Best Wyoming Cycling Events 2024 are based on various factors, including reputation, route quality, location, rider feedback, and the event’s or race’s overall uniqueness.

Wyoming Road Cycling

Wyoming’s open roads and wide horizons make it an ideal destination for road cycling enthusiasts. One of the most popular road cycling locations is the Grand Teton National Park, where cyclists can navigate the scenic Teton Park Road, offering unparalleled views of the majestic Teton Range. The relatively low traffic and well-maintained roads create an inviting environment for cyclists of all skill levels.

For a more challenging ride, crossing into Montana, the Beartooth Highway presents a demanding ascent with rewarding panoramic views of the Absaroka and Beartooth mountain ranges. This iconic route, also known as the “All-American Road,” is a bucket-list experience for cyclists seeking high-altitude thrills.

Wyoming Gravel Cycling

Wyoming’s rugged terrain and extensive network of gravel roads make it a haven for gravel cyclists yearning for off-the-beaten-path adventures. The Laramie Range Epic, located near the city of Laramie, offers a mix of challenging climbs, winding descents, and stunning prairie landscapes. The ride explores the Medicine Bow National Forest, truly tasting Wyoming’s untamed beauty.

The Red Grade Road, situated in the Bighorn Mountains, is another gravel gem. The route is renowned for its steep climbs and exhilarating descents, taking riders through dense forests and offering sweeping views of the surrounding valleys. The Red Grade Road is excellent for cyclists seeking a remote, challenging gravel experience.

Wyoming Mountain Biking

Wyoming’s mountainous regions cater to mountain biking enthusiasts with an array of trails ranging from beginner-friendly to adrenaline-pumping descents. Curt Gowdy State Park, located between Cheyenne and Laramie, features an extensive trail system for mountain bikers, with routes like the Stone Temple Circuit providing thrilling singletrack experiences.

In the Teton Valley, the Munger Mountain Trail offers a mix of flowy descents and technical sections, surrounded by the stunning Teton Range. Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s bike park is another hotspot for mountain bikers, with lift-accessed trails catering to various skill levels.

For gravel enthusiasts, the Dead Swede Hundo is a must-attend event. Held in Sheridan, this gravel race covers 100 miles of scenic terrain in the Bighorn National Forest. The course features a mix of gravel roads and forested trails, promising a true Wyoming adventure.  The September Fistful of Dirt is also noteworthy on the gravel calendar in Cody, Wyoming.

The Tour de Wyoming stands out as a premier event for road cyclists.
