Photos submitted by Michael Hartlaub, “Almost every year Tioga Pass (CA120) Road in Yosemite National Park is open to bikes for a few days before they open the road to cars. Almost no one out there. No cars. And amazing scenery. A few friends and I got the word and drove up for a ride from Crane Flats to Tioga Pass and back.  Over 8500′ of climbing over 92 miles. Keep an eye out on the website every year around May and be ready to jump on it.”

We always love to see your photos and would like to show them to the world here on the Pic Of The Day. Send in your photo with a brief description here.

Wow good to know. But I don’t think I’d get anywhere as I’d want to stop and look at all the climbing.

Torn.

Nice! One of my favorite road rides ever, even with cars.

When was this? Any way to get notified of when this will happen next year?

Nice!

We’ve done this at McKenzie Pass and hope to get to one of the car-free weekends at Crater Lake this fall, but I had no idea NPS did this at Tioga Road in Yosemite in the spring! Sweet!

I had no idea they opened the road to bikes first…I’m definitely adding this to my bucket list!

To second the question above, is there a specific announcement on the NPS website about when it’s opened to bikes, or do they just announce the date of opening (for cars), and you have to know to get up there a few days before?
