Cyclists to take on Grand Canyon Railwayadmin
After 25 years, cyclists will get their chance to take on the Grand Canyon Railway in a 54 mile race from the south rim of the Grand Canyon to Williams, AZ.
Last held in October 1991, the race has become the stuff of legend.
The race will begin on Highway 64 in Tusayan, Ariz., departing the Grand Hotel at the Grand Canyon at 1 p.m. PDT. From there the course will travel 50 miles south on Highway 64, before merging onto historic Route 66 for the last four miles. The finish line will be at the intersection of Second Street and Route 66 in Williams.
Hosted by Grand Canyon Racing, and sponsored by the Grand Canyon Railway, the event is fully permitted by the Arizona Department of Transportation, and traffic control and law enforcement will be on site for the entirety of the event.
