On a bike, it's much easier to navigate the 1st 100' or so, IMO.

Kinda like a "trials over le rocks."

Let me know if those plans materialize and you want some company, Ben. I've been wanting to go to the north rim via Toroweap for a while. The views there look stunning.

Weekender to GNP would be cool.

I've only ever gone to the south rim but that's the most common. If you plan on hiking/camping, a good over nighter would be down Kaibab trail on the eastern end to Bright Angel campground which is on the river. The next day, you can hike out via the Bright Angel Trail.

My brother and I did the reverse hike in one day last thanksgiving and it was brutal.

Check this out Ben: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...0&postcount=32

Look at those views at the end of 60 miles of dirt! Camera and hiking shoes mandatory.
