The bike tour we requested was sold out so we chose to rent bikes for a half-day and tour on our own. When we arrived the staff was courteous and efficient. They got us set up on our bikes and gave us some recommendations on our route. We also preordered lunch that made for a great picnic a few hours later at a quiet spot on the South Rim. The 7-speed bikes were in good shape. We headed out to Hermits Rest with a plan to stop at the interesting viewpoints on the way back. . We are both pretty fit and we found the hills manageable. The climb from GC Village up to Hopi Point was challenging on those heavy bikes. Someone not in good shape might struggle.
The road is closed to general traffic. It felt safe and quiet. The Park busses passed every 10 minutes or so and we pulled over the side so they could pass safely.
We had a great day riding along the rim of the canyon, stopping when and where we wanted. We were able to refill our water bottles at most stops. We spent about 4-hours on our tour. The total round trip mileage was 21 miles.
* If you are in reasonable shape and want an "active tour" of the South Rim, this is a great option.
* You can get on a bus at any stop if you have had enough. One idea might be to ride out to Hermits Rest, stopping along the way and then taking the bus back.
* Rent a bike or sign up for a bike tour. It is an awesome way to see the canyon without the crowds you find at GC Village or the crowded, driveable overlooks on the road to Desert View.

Biking is a great option, especially if you have limited time. You cover the most ground, still up close to the rim AND you can visit interior amenities such as the deli and "lower" priced grocery store at market center. Suggest you take the red trail along the private road and stop at every view of the canyon. If you get tired, rest along the way at very safe locations and the canyon bus shuttle will take you back (3 bikes at a time). Keep in mind the altitude at 7,000' will get you winded quicker and seemed to accelerate and dehydrate us faster than at lower altitudes. Overall, we just slowed down a bit. BTW, we have varied biking experience and one person had not been on a bike for years.
We felt very safe as the interior trails are all paved and wide. The red trail road, hermit road, is reserved for canyon buses and very few tour buses making the traffic extremely infrequent. When a bus came by you are required to move aside onto the shoulder...we stopped which was ultra safe. There are a few hills along the way and they were easy to negotiate.
A-PLUS staff at Bright Angle Bikes who are friendly and knowledgeable. They test each bike which they custom select and fit. They give you space to test ride, and adjust the bike accordingly. The bikes are perfect and in great condition. They are large enough for anyone over six feet and very easy to handle if you are a novice. 3 of our 4 bikes had a water bottle holder and we carried extra water and snacks in our packs.
We brought our own helmets; however, they have an extensive selection and use deep cleaning methods which we personally witnessed. We noted the helmets were adjustable and many bikers found it easy to find the right size.
We rented all day, 4 bikes, our ages were 18 to 65; 1 expert, 2 moderate level and one very very novice. We started at 8am and ended around 330pm which included a lunch stop at the previous mentioned market central grocery store/deli.
Worth every minute, highly flexible uses, safe, and easy to handle and see the most of the canyon.

What a tremendous day!! We had a noon-5 half day rental of two electric bikes alllowing for a totally non-strenuous 20 mile round trip from Mather Point to Hermits Rest. The ride offered countless views of a lifetime. The bikes were first rate and the service of the team was the best. We rode taking their advice to maximize battery charge and barely made a dent in the battery. Sandwiches from their cafe made an ideal lunch on the canyon rim.

Tip - bring a light coat and at least one big water bottle for each rider. Great snacks and water refill at the Hermits Rest turnaround.

This is an AWESOME way to see the canyon. Trust Bright Angel to give you a perfect day.

We did the hermit road bike ride on the south rim. We had an absolute blast and the sights and smells of the canyon gave us all an excellent view to look at while we were riding. We had Duffy as our guide and he was knowledgeable and humorous. My daughter had a flat tire during the middle of the ride and Duffy came to the rescue and got her tire changed. Our kids were 8 and 10 and enjoyed it. It’s a mostly flat ride That’s all on a paved road. The ride also made frequent stops to enjoy overlooks. We would recommend this company to others looking to explore the Grand Canyon.

We rented the ebikes ( pedal assist) for the day and it was SO worth it. We did Hermit Road and had such a fun family experience. The bikes held their charge and were easy to use and helpful with some of the hills. We are in our late 50’s and had our 22 year old and 17 year old kids with us. Different levels of fitness but we all pedaled without assist until the ride back where the hills are a bit steep. Packed a lunch and had a picnic at Hermits Rest. The bikes come with a lock and helmets. The staff is friendly and informative. What a fun way to see the South Rim. The trails were not congested and only a few tour buses passed us. We felt safe and it felt great to have the wind in our faces and to take our time looking at beautiful views and stops along the way. Highly recommend and would do it again. Everyone had a blast.

My wife and I rented bikes here a couple days ago. We only had one night in the park so we made the most of our day by renting bikes. We wanted to see as much of the Grand Canyon as possible so we figured this would be our best bet. Prices are on par with other bike rentals from around the country that we have rented during previous vacations. We did not reserve ahead of time but I would recommend it since while we were waiting in line an announcement was made that they had run out of kids bikes. They are nice seven speed bikes with thick tires.

We hired bikes to ride from Hopi Point to Hermits Rest. We’re a family of 5 with kids 14,11 and 9. It was such a fun, easy and safe ride for us all along Hermits Rd, with amazing views and lots of time to enjoy the viewpoints.
The staff at BA Bikes are really friendly and helpful and their cafe was the only available place for food and drink at the visitor centre when we were there, so we made lots of use of that during our time in the park too.
Highly recommend this experience.

We rented bikes for 24 hours and took a combination of the NPS shuttle and biking to Hermit Rest. Our boys are 14, 11 and 7, and all enjoyed the experience. Once at Hermit Rest we hiked down the canyon about 1.2 miles to the first junction and back up. The shuttle was a great option to get home after we were tired from hiking. Late October weather was perfect-high of about 70 degrees, sunny and clear. The bike along the rim was really pretty, and the traffic restrictions made it feel safe for our family to use the road. It was also nice to use the bikes on the greenway to get around the area (we camped at Mather). Highly recommend for families with kids who are old enough to get around by bike.

Easy booking process, good prices, all on line so we completed Waiver docs etc before we arrived making the collection quick and easy. Staff very friendly and took time to explain. We rode end to end, batteries still had loads in them. The roads and pathways through the scenery were ace! Lots of places to stop, and picnic tables.

We were thoroughly impressed with the ease of reserving e-bikes online. The staff were extremely courteous and informative upon our arrival to secure our bikes. One employee ensured that we were comfortable and efficient riding our bikes while educating us about how to use an e-bike as this was our first experience. We had the best day ever exploring the canyon. We highly recommend Bright Angel Bicycles.
