TRIP DESCRIPTION

The word “grand” conjures up all kinds of adventurous notions, and what better way to explore one of the world’s most magnificent natural wonders than by bicycle? Of course, Grand Canyon National Park’s remoteness, especially on the North Rim, can make planning multi-day, self-contained cycling expeditions difficult. But, what if there was a support vehicle along to transport our gear and water from point to point, leaving us free to ride the trails and winding dirt roads through pine and aspen forests unencumbered? Then, we would have the mountain-biking trip of a lifetime. And that’s just what we’re offering on our van-supported bike tour of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.

Come take advantage of this opportunity to ride some great singletrack on the Rainbow Rim and Arizona Trails — portions of which were built specifically for mountain bikes. Our fantastic overnight locations, some literally perched right on the rim, are awe-inspiring and jaw dropping. Top all this off with a special, sumptuous dinner at the Grand Canyon Lodge, and it’s a trip whose grandeur can’t be beat.
