Your guide will change the itinerary or terrain if it gets too strenuous for you or other members of the group. 

What if I’ve never mountain biked before?

As long as you pedal on two wheels, you can book this adventure. Even though some off-road biking experience is preferable, it is not mandatory. A guide will explain the different mountain bike techniques and body positions to get you feeling comfortable on the trail. 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!

  • Sunglasses
  • Plenty of water, water bottle or hydration bladder
  • Daypack with snacks

Dress comfortably and for the weather in clothes you can move in. We suggest bringing clothing appropriate for the season. Layers are best and don’t wear jeans.

Getting there and meeting location

To get to the Zion area, most people fly into Las Vegas McCarran International Airport 2.5 hours away. From there, you can rent a car and take a shuttle service to Springdale, Rockville, Virgin, La Verkin, or Hurricane in Utah.

Alternatively, you can simply meet your guide at a designated recreational site if you prefer to get there on your own.
