BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Yellowstone National Park officials are opening a section of the park to bicyclists only for the next two weeks, giving them a chance to ride without competing with tourist traffic.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1UGJpja) that 49 miles between West Yellowstone and Mammoth Hot Springs, Wyoming will be open to cyclists through April 14.

Park officials are also warning cyclists that riding in Yellowstone this time of year can be a challenge, as snow and ice are possible along sections of road.

Riders are encouraged to carry bear spray and stay out of closed areas.

There will be no park services available along the road and cellphone coverage is sparse in the park.
