When you arrive, park your vehicle and explore Yosemite with two wheels. Biking is one of the easiest, most fun ways to ensure you see all the highlights at Yosemite National Park. Yosemite Valley is flat, which makes for easy riding along our 12 miles of designated paths. All rental bikes are available first-come, first-served – reservations are only available for ADA bicycles (hand-crank bicycles, and tandem bicycles for visually impaired guests). Before you begin your biking trip, be sure to review the trail map and familiarize yourself with our biking rules.

Bicycles, tag-along bikes for children, trailers, and helmets are available for all ages and abilities. We also offer a select number of tandem bikes and hand-crank bikes for guests with physical limitations.
