Grand Canyon Bike Tours and Rentals

Grand Canyon Bike Tours

Bright Angel Bicycles is located right next to the Grand Canyon Visitor Center and offers both bike rentals and bike tours along the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park. As the only company that offers this service at Grand Canyon, Bright Angel Bicycles is popular with visitors looking for an active way to explore Grand Canyon. Bright Angel Bikes offers two different 3-hour guided bicycle tour routes—a shuttled 5.5-mile ride along the scenic Hermit Road and a 7-mile roundtrip ride that leaves right from their shop near Mather Point and follows the Greenway and Rim Trail to an incredible view at Yaki Point. They also offer bicycle rentals for self-guided trips from their shop and they can provide shuttle service for those looking to enjoy an easier, one-way ride along the Hermit Road. Bike rentals are available from March-December and guided bike tours are offered March-November. Read the guide below to learn more.

South Rim Bike Tour Options

Popular Bike Tours 

Offered on the South Rim along Hermit Road and Yaki Point, as well as other nearby destination like Sedona and Red Rock Canyon outside Las Vegas. Check out the top 3 recommended Grand Canyon Bike Tours to book.

Hermit Road

A spectacular 8-mile long scenic road that parallels the South Rim of Grand Canyon. In addition to offering some of the most breathtaking views of the canyon and Colorado River, this area is popular with bike riders since Hermit Road is closed to vehicles making it a safe and laid back place to ride. Bright Angel Bicycles’ Hermit Road Tour departs from their shop at the Grand Canyon Visitor Center Plaza and shuttles riders in their van to Hopi Point (avoiding several large uphill sections along the way!). From there, riders enjoy a 5.5 mile ride that takes about 2.5 hours including stops to learn more about the canyon and to take some great photos. Once you arrive at Hermits Rest, you will enjoy a quick shuttle ride back to the shop.

Yaki Point

This Bicycle Tour heads out directly from Bright Angel Bicycles’ shop, taking bikers along a quiet and scenic section of the Rim Trail. Covering 7 miles over the course of 3 hours, riders will enjoy some solitude as they take in great views from the canyon with educational stops along the way. The tour ends at Yaki Point before riders make the return trip to the shop. If you’re looking to avoid being in a car, this is a great, shuttle-free option for the active traveler!

South Rim Bicycle Rentals

Grand Canyon Village and the South Rim

Offers riders the appealing option to explore the canyon on a bicycle thanks to Bright Angel Bicycles. Their shop is conveniently located at Grand Canyon Visitor Center where you can park for the day before setting out on a ride. If you are looking to rent a bicycle, their staff will quickly get you fitted with the correct bicycle and helmet before helping you choose the best route for you to enjoy on your ride. They offer a variety of rental time periods from as short as one hour up to multiple days, giving you the option to explore at your own pace. Their most popular bike rental option for adults is a 7-speed hybrid bike that works great on the relatively flat, paved trails along the canyon rim and Grand Canyon Village. In addition, they also offer adult road bikes, children’s bikes, and Burley trailers and tagalongs for kids. Beyond bikes, they also rent single and double strollers for kids and wheelchairs.

The Hermit Road Bike Rental and Shuttle Package

Offers travelers an independent option for biking along the Hermit Road. This is not a guided service; instead it simply shuttles bikers from Bright Angel Bicycles’ shop to Hopi Point where you will begin your ride. You’ll enjoy incredible views and mostly flat or downhill riding on your 5.5 mile trip to Hermits Rest. Bright Angel Bicycles’ shuttle will pick you up at Hermits Rest and bring you back to the shop. This rental option is incredibly popular because it does not cost much more than the basic bike rental and it takes you directly to the most scenic biking area along the South Rim (Hermit Road is not accessible to personal vehicles). This shuttle service is only offered in combination with a Bright Angel bicycle rental—they cannot shuttle riders who bring their own bikes.
