Grand Tetons
. . Cell service is widely available on the floor of Jackson Hole throughout Grand Teton National Park
Wi-Fi is available in public areas at Jenny Lake Lodge, Jackson Lake Lodge, Signal Mountain, and Colter Bay Village

. . Cell service is spotty and currently limited to areas of Canyon, Grant Village, Mammoth Hot Springs, and Old Faithful. Verizon has the best coverage, and AT&T has coverage in the southern part of the park and Gardiner and West Yellowstone.  
. . Wi-Fi is prohibited in the Old Faithful Inn and the Lake Hotel in order to preserve the historic lodging experience. Xanterra will be permitted to offer Wi-Fi service in other park lodging and general stores. Yellowstone's planning is to actively promote "cell phone free zones" in the park.

. . Gas stations in the park are located at Mammoth Hot Springs, Canyon Village, Grants Village, Fishing Bridge and Old Faithful.

. . All our overnight sites have restaurants.  We have dinner reservations at Yellowstone Lake and Old Faithful.  Bicyclists should have breakfast early enough to be ready by 9:30AM for the day's ride.  Non-bicyclists can do whatever suits their mutual schedule.

. . If we want to eat lunch, it will have to be picnic style.  Each of our lodges has a general store which sells sandwiches and soft drinks.  It would be nice if everyone, bicyclists and non-bicyclists meet for a group picnic.
