Definitely not safe for bicycles. But if you do ride, be sure to have a bright rear strobe to warn upcoming traffic. The description says "lightly trafficked". This would not be by characterization of the highway. Traffic might be on the lighter side, but it is fast moving. Very, very scenic with many campgrounds along the route. Be forewarned that in many places, the road is adjacent to the river, and there are no guardrails! You have to pay attention to the road and not on the natural beauty of the canyon/river.

Well worth the drive. I will be back, this time to take more time and see all the numerous sights along the way.
