It's typically the first three weeks of April or so. Not all the roads are open, unfortunately. I believe it's just the stretch from Gardiner to West Yellowstone, and one route that comes in from the south. Roads tend to be dry to mostly dry. Depending on the snow level, you can see a lot of wildlife (primarily buffalo and elk) or next to none except in a few spots. (If the snow has melted early, the wildlife goes into the higher elevations.) I've had to stand my ground numerous times at the side of the road while herds or individual bison have passed by in the other lane. The ride can be short (just a brief in and out from either starting point) or long; the Gallatin Valley Bike Club organizes a century ride during that time, and I've heard of multiple groups doing a key swap as they ride from one city to the other. There is only one moderate climb near the middle. Otherwise, the route is not challenging (for a cycling enthusiast).

Weekends are obviously busier but never restrictively so. I've gone during the week and seen almost no one (although the weather was a little cloudy and rainy). If you find yourself in the area, whether it is to see Yellowstone or just southwest Montana as the seasons start to change, it's well worth doing. There's enough to do in West, Gardiner, and nearby Bozeman or Livingston to add to the occasion. Shoot me a PM if you'd like additional details!

I remember being startled by one that was standing behind a tree next to one of the trails. I came off the trail, almost to the parking lot, et voila! There he was, like 3' from me. A bit startling, but he just stood there. Gentle giants. Loved Yellowstone. Riding through it must be heaven.

It's a long story, but it certainly is not intended as a bison deterrent.
