Going to the Sun Bike Rental  The Going to the Sun Road is now open to cars for the 2018 summer season. We do not allow bike rentals on the road because of the dangerous conditions. Give us a call or stop in for other biking options.

BIKE RENTAL PRICING

One of the best kept secrets is the spring season when the Going-to-the-Sun Road is closed to cars, but open to bikers and hikers, providing a quieter glimpse into the heart of Glacier National Park. Glacier Outfitters rents high quality hybrid and road bikes with disc brakes for this amazing adventure. This reservation is a day rental only. Find more information below. Book yours today on our reservation page.

Going To The Sun Road Bike Reservation (GTTSR): 

 

Biking the Going to the Sun Road (GTTSR) only occurs when the road is closed to vehicles and only allows hikers and bikers to travel. Once the road opens to vehicles, we will no longer allow our bikes on the GTTSR. Biking Camas Road and Gateway to Glacier are excellent alternatives for a longer ride and the Apgar Bike Path is a good short alternative.  Visit GNP Bike Page and Road Status for more info.

How Long Is The GTTSR Ride? 

The distance you can bike depends on where you start and how far the plow crew has advanced toward Logan Pass/where the park service allows public access. If you choose to start at Lake McDonald Lodge your bike ride to Avalanche Lake parking lot will be a flat 5.5 miles around the northeast of the lake and through the forest, with mild car traffic. If you choose to start at Avalanche Lake parking lot, you will have a slight climb for the next 6 miles with epic mountainous views, along a rushing creek and without car traffic. About 2 miles below “The Loop”, elevation picks up as you climb the next 10 miles to Logan Pass, where you will gain around 3,000 feet in elevation. The earlier in the season, the farther away from Logan Pass the plow crews will be. And remember, avalanches and bears are a unique hazard to biking the GTTSR, so please be aware of your surroundings at all time and use caution.
Need Bear Spray? Rent it Here!


Want A Longer Bike Ride?

Start from our shop and bike the eastern side of Lake McDonald for a beautiful ride of just over 30 miles each way. Note: Starting June 15th the first 8 mile section (Apgar Campground to Sprague Campground) has biking restrictions between 11am to 4pm. Visit GNP website for more info.


Biking Restrictions?

Crews work on plowing the road Monday-Thursday (and some Fridays) from 9 am to 4/4:30pm, this limits the access one can travel. During plowing time, you can reach “The Loop”, about 8 miles from Avalanche Lake Trail. There are no plow crews Saturday and Sunday (and some Fridays); thus no time limitation. Starting June 15th riding from Apgar Village to Sprague Creek is restricted to bike travel between 11am-4pm. 
Visit GNP Bike Page and Road Status for more info.

Transportation/Bike Shuttle? 

Don’t want to bike from our shop in Apgar Village? Welcome to rent a bike rack from us and drive up to Avalanche Lake parking lot or Lake McDonald Lodge.  On Saturday + Sunday Glacier Conservancy sponsors a bike shuttle from Apgar Visitors Center (3 minutes ride from our shop) to Avalanche Lake parking lot. Want more bike shuttles? Donate to the Glacier Conservancy. 

How To Dress?

Weather can change in the mountains, so you can start your day off in shorts and quickly layer up as weather and elevation changes. It’s smart to bring synthetics, rain jacket+pants and plenty of food and water. For your way down, pack a warm fleece or puffy layer and bring along gloves and a hat. With a little moister and traveling high-speeds downhill, hypothermia can be experienced if not prepared.
