In January, the National Parks Service promised to released another statement on downhill bike tours in March. This week, that decision was released. The park will continue their safety stand-down and prohibit the biking from beginning inside the park with a commercialized tour companies. Please note that bike tours have continued to operate outside the park’s boundaries.
Park officials announced that they will issue permits for more bike tour companies to enter the park for vehicle tours of the park prior to beginning the downhill bike ride outside of the park. Previously only two of seven bike tour companies had permits to bring their customers inside the park. I hope this will result in more options and better pricing.
