Take a spin to the Wydaho Rendezvous Teton Bike Festival.
Clear your schedule because this Labor Day Weekend (September 1-3), there’s a whole lot going down at Grand Targhee Resort. The Wydaho Rendezvous Teton Bike Festival is set to kick off on Friday morning and run through the weekend, with tons of biking and bike-related shenanigans. $150 for a weekend pass will get your biking stoke as high as ever for this year’s singletrack season finale. Here’s what to expect.
The weekend festivities commence on Friday morning at 10am, when the lifts at TGR start to turn. You can pick up your festival wristbands and “Swag Bag,” then head out to do some riding. Take advantage of discounted lift passes all weekend long with your festival wristband. Once you’re ready for a break—and you will be after a few 2,000-foot descents—stop by the bike demo and expo area to meet-and-greet with vendors and festival partners. At night, the antics continue with raffles, music, and partying at the Trap. Saturday morning, if you’re feeling up for it, there’s yoga on the lawn starting at 8am. Then do it all over again for day 2 of the festival. Find the full schedule here.
You won’t want to hang your bike back up after this weekend. It’ll feel like the start of a new season after being around so many other passionate, excited riders and bike industry brands. Don’t worry, there’s more riding to be had through the fall if you look hard enough.
While in the area, make sure to stop into Driggs to check out some local shops, restaurants, and bars. For area expertise on biking, and overall outdoor-related needs, check out Peaked Sport. They have it all—from bike, boat rentals and ski gear to general outdoor clothing and gear. Pro tip: It’s pronounced “pea-kid,” and named after Peaked Mountain at Grand Targhee Resort.
There you have it: a plethora of reasons to head down to Driggs for the weekend. So grab your bike and a few friends, and point your rigs south come Labor Day Weekend.
