As good as anyplace, IMO.
Just use your head, and take normal precautions, as anywhere.
Good folks out here, in general.

Can you recommend any areas in any of the 3 states? Any nice lively areas to stay, hang out, some tours or adventurous stuff, and maybe meet up with or bump into some bikers?
I've been dying to see that area of the country and I'd be traveling from NYC area.
Thanks

Where to ride - Wyoming

If you're headed west into Wyoming via I-80, there are a lot of good options in the Cheyenne and Laramie areas. Primo singletrack at Curt Gowdy State Park, and several good trails in the Pole Mountain section of the Med Bow National Forest a little bit further west. Also, some options in the Snowy Range area west of Laramie.

If you've not been here before, I'd recommend seeing the sights, and fitting your biking around that. To me, the prettiest placs in the region are:

1. Glacier Natoinal Park, MT
2. Grand Teton National Park, WY
3. Sawtooth National Rec. Area, ID
4. Beartooth Wilderness, MT/WY

Visit some/all of those places and look for riding in those areas. You'll not be disapointed.

Bikes are not allowed on the trails in any NP or Wilderness area.

And by the way, you left out the "Crown Jewel" of all the "un-rideable" areas, the Wind River Range of WY.

I'd highly recommend the Snowy Range trails for a true "wilderness" experience, they are so far under the Radar, that even I can drive from CO in 1 1/2 hrs and rarely even see another tire track. Be prepared for rugged, very remote situations with all the riding well above 10,000'

As far as 'lively" hang out spots/party scenes....You are are talking about WY/MT aren't you ?? There aren't enough people in all 3 states put together to throw a "lively" party by you're NYC standards. I'd take my chances to enjoy the real west and just stroll into any saloon and ask if they have any micro's on tap, but only if your not wearing Lycra.:yikes:

^^^^^
That's not....'exactly'....true.
There are events all over that draw thousands and thousands of party people, music festivals, cycling events, food events, etc...lot's going on. Not all tons are 'rancher'...take Jackson, for example. (which some argue isn't really in Wy...)
