Irving was a careful guide. Though there were 8 people in our group with varying experience and abilities, everyone got Lenny of choices in routes and excitement. For the more experienced aggressive riders he had side trips planned. The bikes were excellent, some with 29 inch tires which ride great. The hills that some rode up and some pushed their bikes up were not too long or steep or difficult....just right.... And the scenery was gorgeous desert...
The equipment...bikes and helmets ...were top rate...bad Irving brought and carried extra water...everyone went through at least 2 bottles.
It was a great morning trip.
Great experience and guide Brandon.
We loved our mountain bike tour! The ride was customized to our skill level with just the right combination of challenge and fun. The pick-up and drop-off process was very convenient. We were tempted to sign up again and ride the next day.
Great your, guide was excellent and so was the hire bike. Would highly recommend this if you want to see something other than casinos in Vegas
I had never mountain biked before this trip and wanted to see the desert. While I found the experience challenging I really enjoyed it and want to pursue the sport at home . Brandon was a very fine guide , knowledgable considerate and professional. I would reccomend this trip for any reasonably fit
This tour was amazing!
Brandon is super knowledgeable and fun! My boyfriend and I did this last week. We’re from Oregon, in our young 30s, and are relatively outdoorsy, healthy, and athletic. I went into this as a newbie mountain biker (although with cycling class experience) and the bf went into this with mountain biking experience, but only as a kid (20+ years ago). He did okay, but I did not.
Spinning/cycling class skills do not transfer over to mountain biking well. I had difficulty learning how to balance my weight, position my body, and apply the brakes. The terrain had loose gravel, large rocks, and prickly plants along the narrow trail. On one of the first dips, my brain froze and I applied the L brake (front wheel) because I’m L-handed, rather than the R (rear). I went head first into the prickly plants and rocks. My left thigh was pinned under the handlebars until I unfroze. This is not a trail to practice and experiment on for the 1st time. During the switchbacks, I was intimidated and got off my bike and walked which was allowed and encouraged. The tour guide and our fellow rider rode ahead and then the 4 of us would reconvene for briefing before the next portion. This was great because they were able to do their thing while the bf and I took it slow. Overall, the bf had minimal problems with the trail, unlike me. Although both of us were panting heavily during the climbs due to the change in elevation, dry air, and hot sun.
The trail and landscape was beautiful. We got some great photos and captured many of my falls on my GoPro which has been comical. I’m still bruised and limping 1 week later, but battle wounds are the best. That’s one thing to note. Ladies, do this tour at the *END* of your trip if you want to look good. I looked all 50-shades-of-gray, beat up and bruised, at the pool and got many inquisitive looks. Also I was limping which meant no heels for the rest of the trip. But overall, Brandon was the best! I’d do this tour again or even try mountain biking again!
The tour was absolutely fantastic as was our guide Adam! The trail was both challenging and fun at the same time - and like nothing the four of us had experienced before. Adam was excellent as our tour guide! I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys biking and who wants to do something off the beaten path from the typical Las Vegas experience.
Great guide, beautiful scenery. Be prepared for a workout! As someone who has only done some light road biking, it was a whole different world. However, it was easy to pick up with help from the guide and I had the time of my life.
