Just curious if anyone here has been out to Yellowstone NP in the spring when it is open only to cyclists right before their season opening? Sadly i'm a few years out from being back in the states but my GFI notebook stays filled to capacity...

but it can be cold, wet, snowy. Something that should be done at least once in your life!

....and early June. It wasn't closed to traffic then, but it was very quiet -- eerily so. I have no idea about the "cyclists only" times, but I can't imagine it being much better. A few cars don't bug me, and most people drive very slowly there.....Just don't mess with the bears or the buffalo:)

The thought of hungry bears & wolves and no one else around scares me :) Seriously.. I have a family cabin just outside of the park.. if the park is ridable in May & June it's fantastic riding... Some of the best riding in the park like Dunraven Pass and the other high elevations may still be covered in snow. The road between the North & NE entrance (Gardener to Silver Gate) is open all winter and is a great ride. I'd also reccommend riding Beartooth Pass if you are around a little later. It frequently opens late, sometimes in July but is passable to bikes in the weeks before opening... some of the most amazing scenery in the country... that's my favorite ride.
