We had drive the Rainbow basin scenic loop a couple years ago and at that time found ourselves thinking that we wanted to come back and do it on bikes which would allow us to stop more often and experience the scenery without having to worry about whether or not the van would fit through the next corner!
This year, as we arrived at the campground we noticed that the road for the scenic loop was closed. We figured that was even better reason for us to check it out on mountain bikes. We wouldn’t need to worry about vehicles on the road (not that there are that many people out here at the moment).
The ride took us 2 hours and we road 13.5 km (8.4 miles).
