This picture was taken as we departed Zabriske Point for the trail head of the Golden Canyon Trail. The trial would bring us back to Zabriske Point where our car was and we would then drive back to the trail head to pick up the bicycles. Much better than hiking the trail in both directions. This way we could spend as much time as we wanted along the trail and knew that at the end we would have transportation. Most of the bike ride to the trail head was a downhill coast. Unfortunately, the wind was blowing in our face once we reached the valley floor and Louise had to walk her bicycle the last quarter mile because the wind was just too strong.
Our Bike E bicycles were brand new on this trip. They provide us a very comfortable ride with full seats and a seat back. The Bike E company has gone out of business but there are still many kinds of recumbent bicycles being built. I recommend recumbent bicycles to everyone. The riding position is so comfortable, no craning of the neck to see the road ahead. When you get off the bicycle you stand up rather than teetering on your toes and trying to lift a leg over a high seat.
