Our guide, Missy, was excellent. I am an intermediate mountain bike rider and my wife is more of a novice. Missy was able to accommodate us both. The trail we road on was challenging, but doable and the views were incredible. The bikes were in great shape and snacks and drinks are provided. I was most impressed with Missy’s professionalism and knowledge of the area. I would definitely recommend taking this tour.

We had Tim as a guide! He was amazing! He had snacks and water and was very aware of the trails. He was knowledgeable and allowed us to make decisions on how we felt! We were beginner riders, but this tour was 100% worth it!!!
