Mike Aymond/Park Ranger: "You're out there in nature, you're not making any noise, you're getting some exercise so you're burning your own calories, but you're not burning any carbon, so there's so many reasons why bicycling is a good way to enjoy the park."
The tour is free with admission to the park.
You do have to bring your own bike, and kids have to wear a helmet.
