    My first RR and I'm joining a group ride to the Grand Canyon on dirt bikes, riding dirt roads and such. I think this is the 12th year they are doing this trip. Bikes will be trailered just north of Phoenix to the official start/staging area. There will be a support vehicle providing our deli lunch buffet on day 1 and taking our camping gear for Friday nights camping, as well as transporting our extra bags and such.

    Day 1 April 30 Phoenix to Grand Canyon. Lunch in Parks, AZ. Hotel Thursday night in Tusayan.

    Day 2 May 1 - Grand Canyon - Mingus mountains Camping Friday night near Cottonwood.

    Day 3 May 2 - Mingus to Lake Pleasant. Lunch in Crown King, AZ

    If you get a chance, can post up the route you take? Either before or after the trip. I am collecting different routes that run between Phoenix and the Grand Canyon.

    Day 3 footage at this point in the trip my arms were completely spent. Holding on to the bike was nearly impossible and not going down was all I could do just to finish the ride.......

    The creek is near Sycamore, we ended up just outside Clarksdale, This was my first time to ride this route. The creek was definitely a highlight and tons of fun. I will try to find out more info on the exact location.
