E-Bike Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park- What you need to know:
Each spring, Going to the Sun Road is open to cyclists and hikers before it opens to cars. We offer private e-bike tours of Going to the Sun Road, as well as an e-bike shuttle from Whitefish to Glacier during this time. Participants must be 16-years-of-age with a valid drivers license or 18-years-of-age without a license.
In addition to our tours and shuttles while the road is closed to cars, we offer guided cycling trips in the summer months, as well. Participants must be 18 years of age or older and comfortable riding with vehicle traffic. This is an extreme, fun, and moderately challenging trip. See our FAQ at the bottom of this page prior to reaching out with questions.
GOING TO THE SUN ROAD BIKE SHUTTLE
We offer a bike shuttle to Going to the Sun Road for Hiker/ Biker Season, from Whitefish! These are group shuttles operating twice a day until the road opens.

We offer private, guided cycling and e-bike trips in Glacier National Park and the Flathead Valley. Our trips are private to your group and custom tailored to your ability level and interest. During Hiker/Biker season, we offer ONE guided e-bike trip on Going to the Sun Road per day.

This activity departs in the morning. Each person in your group can pick between a gravel, mountain, or e-bike.
The biggest difference is that on a tour, you will have a guide riding with your group. Your guide will talk about park history, glaciation, ecology, and more. Our guided tours also include pick up from your lodging property.
Our shuttles depart from our tour headquarters. We drop you off at the road closure in GNP. We go over proper e-bike use and discuss safety topics. From there, you're off! You have 4-hours of ride time before we return to Whitefish.
The answer is different for everybody. There will likely be other folks riding the road, you'll never feel too "alone." It's very difficult to get lost, as there's only one road. to ride up and back.
Absolutely. As our manager likes to say.... "my mom is in her 60's and only rides her beach cruiser to brunch in Florida. She'd be completely fine to take this trip."
You'll know when we know! The park starts plowing around April 1st. They try to have the road open by the 3rd week in June, but snowpack and avalanche will sometimes slow the process. You can check the Park's website, or feel free to give us a call to discuss.
We love our customers, so feel free to visit during normal business hours.
