Arizona Cycling Tours (ACT) is pleased to announce the dates for the fall 2014 Sedona/Grand Canyon Tour. Tour start dates are Sept 24th, 2014 and Oct 8th, 2014. Visit http://www.arizonacyclingtours.com for complete tour information.
This 5-day all inclusive bike tour provides vacationers the opportunity to experience some of Arizona’s most iconic landscapes such as the red rocks of Sedona, the towering pines of Flagstaff and the always inspiring vistas of Grand Canyon National Park. Enjoying these one-of-a-kind picturesque areas by bicycle, riders are able to immerse themselves in the beauty of their surroundings and relax while relishing the scenic views too numerous to count. This type of adventure is hard to mimic traveling in a car at 40 mph.
The Sedona/Grand Canyon tour was developed with the entry-level cyclist in mind, providing more people the opportunity to enjoy bicycle touring. “Many people we spoke to were intimidated by the majority of the tours offered by most tour companies, including ours, with most exceeding 40-50 miles per day.” states Gary Menard, owner and operator of Arizona Cycling Tours. “The incredible experience of riding through some of the most remarkable scenery on earth”, Menard continues, “was something I thought should be available to all cyclists.”
The average riding distance, on the 4 cycling days during the tour, is 20 miles. Avid cyclists can also be assured that there are always extra riding miles available, if they prefer a slightly harder workout, to enjoy their vacation to the fullest. Rides are done on high-quality roads with wide bike lanes or on multi-bike use paths with no vehicle traffic, such as the Greenway Trail at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park. Be sure to check out the attached video for a quick experience of riding part of the Greenway Trail.
All equipment is provided (road or hybrid bicycle, helmet and gloves) to make travel as hassle-free as possible. Also, the Sedona/Grand Canyon Tours begin in Scottsdale, Az., allowing for convenient travel through the Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix.
