no trip to arizona is complete without a visit to the grand canyon. in the reading prior to going the guidebook pointed out that it can make a pleasant bike ride 25 miles from grand canyon village to the east rim exit. strange how an idea gets planted, takes root and won't leave. quite glad about that.
more fun in usa. this time on highway 89a that runs between flagstaff and sedona. the roads are what we in scotland would call heavy. the surface quite rough and the roads rolling with occasional hills like this one leading to oak creek vista point.
