This was our first visit to the Canyon and I was worried about the best way to see it since we were only there for the day. Our guide Lindsey was fantastic, and the tour itself was breathtaking and away from the crowds. The bike ride was easy enough for my eight year old as well as us adults who are not all that young anymore. We absolutely loved it and would HIGHLY recommend it to ANYONE! Thanks guys for a great experience!

We rented bikes for an hour for our family. Our youngest child rode in the trailer, while the rest of us rode the trail. We enjoyed our ride on the bike route out to the rim and on toward Kaibab. The scenery was amazing and we enjoyed our ride and we took some great pictures. It had been forever since we had ridden, but we all had fun. The guys at the Bright Angel booth were both very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend Bright Angel to friends!

What a fantastic way to get around, you miss the crowds. Stop where you want for as long as you want. Highly recommend to everyone, especially if you have kids! You can hire trailers and tag along bikes too.

On Oct 2, 2010, we drove 51/2 hours from Las Vegas to the South Rim-Grand Canyon for this 5+mile bike ride. Was it worth it? Absolutely!

We drove straight to Bright Angel Bike Rentals and chose the non-guided 2 hour ride on the Hermit's Rest Route. They fitted the bikes to us, gave us helmets, loaded up our bikes on a trailer and drove us to our starting point. The weather was perfect that day. The bikes were extremely comfortable, the path was clearly marked and the ride was amazing. We are ladies in our 50's and didn't have any problems at all. We knew we could always take the free shuttle bus back if we needed to. The majority of the ride was downhill and when it was uphill we simply dismounted and walked our bikes up. We stopped whenever and wherever we wanted. It was so much better than hopping off & on a shuttle bus.

We finished our ride at Hermits Rest. There is a small gift/snack shop there and restroom facilities. The van came as scheduled and picked us up for our ride back to the car. After our bike ride, we drove to the El Tovar Lodge (which was very close) to rest and for a celebratory cocktail and a bite to eat.. What a beautiful place! The food & drinks were very good too.

The folks at Bright Angel Bike rentals were great! This is absolutely the best way to see, feel & experience the Grand Canyon.
