I am currently making plans for the Annual Family Vacation (aka Annual Family Beating because the in-laws are going as well...).

I have been told that to ease my pain I can take my bike and ride every one of the 6 days we are there.

So, what trails should I ride, and what gearing would you suggest? I typically ride a 34:17 down here in Texas for everything. Or should I "shudder to think" take something with gears...

Thanks,

Jackson Rocks

I have taken vacations there and had a few really epic rides.

Check out the areas on the other side of the pass, near Driggs Idaho. There's a shop that is really helpful over there, and everything is good.

PS Bring gears. You gotta climb to ride there.

I second Driggs. I spent a week there two summers ago biking because our VW van couldn't make the pass to Jackson. One of the best misadventures we have ever had, it has (had, it was two years ago?) a cool small town feel, with some great trails.

I highly recommend the ride up the access road to Grand Targhee, then there is a singletrack ride all the way down from the disc golf course. I don't remember what it was called but the people at the bike shops are super friendly.

We liked it so much we actually looked at buying some land in Driggs and putting a trailer on it for summers....

I am new to single speeding, but I would have to say that gears would be a good idea.
