The first portion of our bike trip was to get from Flagstaff, AZ to Grand Canyon National Park, a distance of almost 80 miles with quite a bit of elevation gain & loss…especially for our Florida legs & lungs! We did the trip in 2 days, doing just 30 miles on our first day, Sunday May 20th (as we didn’t leave Flagstaff ’till almost lunchtime) and the remainder of the ride was done on the second day of our trip, Monday May 21st.
The traffic was pretty busy on the way to the park and we stopped plenty of times for 5 minute Swedish Fish & water breaks (and to catch our breath!) and we were delayed by a frothing-at-the-mouth free-range bull, who seemed to consider the road his own. A nice police office spotted our plight and came to our aid, driving his SUV in between us and the bull while we passed “his” territory.
