The entire park just for bikes now.

I posted this on the "So. California" section but I think the idea might be interesting to others. Joshua Tree is a national park that is not too far from where I live and they closed the entire park to cars. It is open to bicycles and hikers only. The weather forecast is "warm and sunny" for the next two weeks. The entrance fee is waived. So it's free now and only accessible to bicycles. You can have the road to yourself.

If someone were looking for a place to ride here is more good and very scenic road than most people can do in one day that is closed to cars and the weather is about 70F.

Bikes only at J-Tree.
