Once you ease into riding, you’ll learn to read obstacles, manage momentum with your body and brakes, and maneuver over the trail with confidence. All your guides expect from you is a basic grasp of riding a bike, an open mind, and a lot of trust. A small price to pay to feel like you’re practically flying, right?

What’s not included:

What to expect from hiring a MTB 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!
What do I need to bring?
- Wear comfortable riding or athletic clothing, preferably moisture wicking or synthetic material
- Sneakers or sport shoes
- Breathable outside layer or jacket
- Plenty of water in water bottle or hydration bladder
- Daypack with snacks
- Biking gloves and safety gear are optional but recommended
What if I never mountain biked before?
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!
How fit do I need to be?
You will need to be able to bike between two and six 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 is the minimum age requirement
Families with children are welcome, but the pace of the tour will be based on the skill level of the least experienced rider. If you’re adventuring with younger kids, contact us prior to booking to ensure that all the minimum requirements are met.
What about group sizes and pricing?
All tours are private to ensure the best possible experience. Pricing is based on the size of your party and decreases with group size, making this the perfect opportunity to adventure with friends and family. Prices are as follows:
- 1 person: $180
- 2 people: $100 per person

- 6+ people: $75 per person

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. Whether that’s shifting to a more favorable location or postponing until conditions approve, your guide will know just what to do. In the event of predictably bad weather, you will be contacted prior to the trip to discuss suitable alternatives.
