Bicycle-only season in Yellowstone National Park offers unique ride : Outdoors

Did you know about bike-only season? You’d have t plan a year ahead and then be subject to poor weather, but wouldnl’t it be great to ride Yellowstone with no cars around?–Corrie

For a short time in the spring, Yellowstone National Park opens the roughly 50-mile section of road between park headquarters in Mammoth Hot Springs, Wyo., and West Yellowstone only to bicyclists, walkers or rollerbladers. Given the variety of wildlife, the scarcity of vehicles and the sweeping vistas of snowy mountains, waterfalls and boiling thermal features, it has to be one of the most incredible and unusual bicycle rides in the United States, if not the world.

“When the weather is nice, it’s like the coolest thing ever,” says Kelli Sanders of Freeheel and Wheel bicycle shop in West Yellowstone. “I usually go in every chance I can.”
