Thank you so much for organizing this event! My friend and I had a great time. The volunteers were friendly and helpful and we talked with several park rangers who answered our questions about the park. We really appreciated that the road was in great condition for biking. Please continue these events where families can ride this gorgeous national park without cars. There should be more of these events where people can enjoy the spectacular park without having to dangerously share the road with cars. Riding the the rim is an experience I’ll never forget.

T. Sommer,

Fantastic ride & day!! Volunteers and park staff were terrific, friendly & helpful. We have done rides around the world and this was very special. Perfect day, unbelievable scenery and not having traffic was a huge bonus! We’ll be sure to promote your event to all of our friends & fellow Canadian riders! Well worth the trip & a memorable ride.

D. Landry,

This was one of the best days I’ve had in months! It was such a gift to be able to ride a road, without cars, and enjoy incredible scenery and quiet. I loved the moments at lookouts sharing the excitement of the beauty with fellow cyclists. And I also loved the solo moments, slowly trudging up another hill but hearing only my heavy breath, a few birds and smelling the warm forest air. The downhills were a treat, for sure. And the aid stations were unexpected, but great. At one, I filled up my water bottles. At another, I applied sunscreen (that I forgot). I used the port-o-potties. And since we were some of the last people coming in to the visitor center, the last aid station volunteers brought us incredible encouragement and laughs and an inspiring push to get us to the end. Thank you the Park Service, the Ride The Rim organizers and the great volunteers. It was something I will treasure forever.
