If you’re itching to try out the mountain bike trips in Sedona, you’ll need to be able to pedal between two and six hours, depending on the itinerary you choose. Even the easy tours require that riders be fit enough to pedal up some rising terrain. 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.
