How fit do I need to be?
You will need to be able to bike between three and five hours, depending on the itinerary you choose. After booking, your guide will determine the group’s skill level and capabilities and cater the day to your specific abilities. Keep in mind, opting for the full day option means more biking, which is strenuous even if you stay on beginner level trails.
What if I’ve never mountain biked before?
Night rides are for intermediate to advanced riders only, but as for the day tours, as long as you pedal on two wheels, you can book this adventure! A guide will explain the different mountain bike techniques and body positions to get you feeling comfortable on the trial. You will progress at a level that is consistent with your comfort. Once you finally get the hang of trail riding, you will only want more!
What do I need to bring?
- Wear comfortable riding or athletic clothing, preferably moisture-wicking or synthetic material
- A rain jacket or shell in case of bad weather
- Sneakers or sport shoes
- Breathable outside layer or jacket
- Daypack with snacks
- Biking gloves are optional but recommended
- Toiletries (sunscreen, hand sanitizer, bug spray, toilet paper, etc.)
What can I expect from mountain biking with a guide?
One of the reasons why mountain biking is so popular is the rush of adrenaline it sends through your veins. Sure, danger is part of the appeal, but you’ll want to avoid any unnecessary risks by hiring a guide. They’ll make sure you enjoy the ride and feel safe while doing it. There is no road map or GPS technology out there that’s as good as having an experienced local guide to lead the way while mastering unfamiliar trails. There’s always more to see, and your guides know just where to go to find it!

Mountain biking in Park City can be arranged for larger groups. Contact us to make arrangements.
What is the minimum age requirement?
- Anyone over the age of 18 is welcome to book this course.
- Children as young as 10 are able to go on trips with a legal guardian. That said, if you have a young rider strong enough to handle sustained climbs (either riding or walking their bike) of hundreds of feet, and rough terrain, then they may be able to participate on a case-by-case basis.
- If your party has minors younger than 18 years old, contact us prior to booking to make arrangements.
What about bad weather?
Tours are scheduled to fit with the seasons and ideal cycling conditions. When the weather does not cooperate, your guide will know the correct course of action to take.
On the rare occasion of truly bad weather, your guide will present you with suitable, safe alternatives. The most common practice is to move to a nearby location if it exists, or to reschedule your mountain biking tour to a more favorable day.
If mountain biking is not possible on your scheduled day and no options presented are viable, you will be issued a full refund.
Do I need an insurance policy?
We highly recommended that you cover all your bases with both emergency medical and travel insurance. With medical insurance, if you have an accident or medical emergency on or off the mountain, you’ll avoid paying out of pocket for costly expenses. This covers everything from hospital treatments to emergency air transportation and more.
If you need assistance selecting the right insurance for your group, let us know and we will be happy to help!
