Saturday saw us on a tour into Canyon country with our english speaking guide, in a comfortable Chev 6 seater station wagon - all the better for the guys to view the scenery. Our guide (a biker himself) wanted to know why we weren't riding, commenting the roads were great to ride. ...

Also went on a long bike ride to visit an apparently unaccessable waterfall because it was too far to cycle… 60km in a day was a walk in the valley of frogs compared to some of the other bike rides I’d done on this trip!
