What You Can Expect
Your tour includes a stop at the Lake Mead Visitors Center for a break, and if the weather is nice enough, you can bike down to Lake Mead for a quick dip. Then you'll head back to the trailhead to enter the tunnels, where trains once transported concrete to the Hoover Dam.
Travel through no less than 5 tunnels with views of Lake Mead and continue on the trail toward the Hoover Dam. Here, you'll have plenty of time to explore the Visitor's Center, take the Discovery Tour (USD 11.00, payable at the Hoover Dam) and admire the Colorado River.
Enjoy a picnic lunch before packing up the bikes and gear and head back to Las Vegas!
Wonderful bike tour! The best sights. Our tour guide was very patient. The best part was taking lunch at the park with goats from the mountain!!
We did this tour as part of our honeymoon in September 2015. From start to finish the tour was very professional run. We got picked up right on time, and went to Boulder City were the tour starts, there was only 4 of us on the tour. We did a quick safety brief with our tour guide Gary, who was very approachable and answered all questions we asked during the day. We picked our lunch up and started the ride, the views were spectacular from start to feel finish. We biked down an old railway line and stopped off halfway down and climbed some of the rocks to get a better view of the lake and Gary gave us an insight of all he knew as well as his personal experiences in the area. We arrived at the Hoover Dam and parked our bikes up, we spent about 30 minutes at the dam taking photos and learning more about the dam before heading back in the van to have our lunch in a park in Boulder City.
I would highly recommend this to anyone and they will cater for any ability on the bikes, you see so much more than you would on a tour bus or a helicopter. Thank you.

Great tour! The ride to Hoover Dam is a great way to experience the area. The ride starts on River Mountain Loop trail which is totally paved and easy to ride with only a few manageable climbs and beautiful views as you get close to Lake Mead. Down at the lake you switch to a gravel trail that takes you through the old railroad tunnels and stunning landscape along the trail. At the end of the trail we hiked over the O'Callaghan-Tilman bridge and then back down and over the Dam. Our guide was knowledgeable about the area, trails and the dam. He carried plenty of cool water for us and even as hot as the day was it was easy to stay hydrated. We ended the day with lunch in a nearby park watching mountain goats graze and enjoying conversation with the tour group. It was a great way to explore Hoover Dam and one of the highlights of my Vegas week!
This was a birthday treat and whilst I did doubt my sanity at times biking in 100F termperatures, the guide Scott was excellent and ensured we were well looked after, had plenty of stops to rest and took on lots of water and energy bars. Most of this bike ride is on the level or down hill so great fun at times, with only a few climbs that required a bit of effort! The scenery as you would expect was fantastic and the lunch more than earmed when we arrived at the Hoover Dam. Great trip, well organised and worth the tour.
This was great fun. Really mostly downhill. Paved or wide gravel track. Tunnels. HIstoric perspective. Great views. Well informed and funny guide Gary. Good food.
very well run tour, easy bike riding with great views and with a very informative guide.
We had a great day! This is a wonderful way to see Hoover Dam. Our guide Scott was terrific,very knowledgable,and made it fun!
great way to see the dam and the area aroun the dam guide was excelent
What a great adventure! Our guide, Neil, was super! The weather was not the normal Vegas sunshine, but we all injoyed it none the less. Neil was very knowledgeable of the area and showed us some really cool cactuses that were along the way (we would have missed them).
Neil picked us up at our hotel as planned and shared his local knowledge as we trekked to the bike shop to get outfitted. The trail was relatively smooth and mostly downhill. Once we reached Hoover Dam, Neil pulled our lunches from his backpack and we ate overlooking the dam and O'Callahan - Tillman Bridge. After a great lunch, Neil walked us across the dam and showed us some of the structure before we headed to the O'Callahan - Tillman Bridge to once again overlook the dam from on high. On the way back to the bike shop, Neil showed us around Boulder City before dropping off the bikes and giving us a ride back to our hotel. This was a first class adventure. It was great to meet the folks at the bike shop and especially spend the day with a top notch guide, Neil. We will definitely do this again when the weather is better. We might even try the river kayaking trip next time!
excellent, everything was spot on from hotel pick up, the ride, the guides knowledge and the other riders
