What’s not included:
If you have your own bike, feel free to bring it with you. If not, you can rent an aluminum frame bike for $25 or upgrade it to a Tier 2 carbon frame bike for $40.
These tours are suitable for riders with good to excellent fitness levels. You will need to be able to bike between four and eight 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 easier trails.
Previous mountain bike experience is recommended. Trail surfaces may include uneven terrain and narrow trails, singletrack, with occasional obstacles (roots, rocks, sand). Hills and descents are moderate to strenuous and require some skill. Riders with minimal mountain bike experience but who have road biking skills or a strong fitness level, along with an adventurous spirit, should be suitable for these tours.
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.
