So I posted the spot page some time ago but never posted pics or a report. We started at the Utah border and rode south to the North Rim in two days. It was beautiful, painful and had lots of rain and hail.

Days 3-4 were spent hiking down the North Kaibab Trail for a night at Phantom Ranch. The next morn we hiked out Bright Angel and were reunited with our bikes.

We camped near Grandview and then rode two days to Flagstaff.

And how did your bikes get from the north rim to the south rim? Cool trip!
We employed a Flag local with time on her hands to drive our car. She also dropped us at Utah to start the ride. Worked quite well.

Curious to know what type of mechanicals you had, if any?

No so much as a flat the whole trip.

Great stuff Yuri. Read your blog last month, and really impressed. I love that you guys decided to do the Canyon. My legs hurt just looking at the pics.

Funny b/c I think the hike was my favorite part. We did some good technical hikes before we left and with the hiking poles I didn't find the hike to be that hard. In fact now we're eyeing backpacking some of the Wilderness sections of the AZT and I can't wait for another trip to the canyon.
