    PREREQUISITES: Anybody who tries to book this tour will need to go through an additional vetting email from the guide.

    • You will need to be able to bike between six and seven 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 that biking on advanced tracks for a full day is extremely strenuous and requires a very high level of fitness.

    • These tours are suitable for experienced mountain bikers only, with excellent fitness and strong bike handling skills. The riding is primarily done on rough doubletrack with frequent obstacles or high elevation singletrack. Sections of the trail can be very challenging, with frequent ascents and descents of significant length. Most of these advanced-level tours are located at elevations ranging from 8,000 to 12,000 feet, where trail conditions can change rapidly due to weather conditions and thunderstorms.

    • Here’s what you’ll need:

        • Wear comfortable riding or athletic clothing, preferably moisture-wicking or synthetic material
        • Sneakers or sport shoes
        • Breathable outside layer or jacket
        • Sunglasses
        • Plenty of water, water bottle, or hydration bladder
        • Daypack with snacks
        • Biking gloves are optional but recommended
        • Bike repair kit
        • Toiletries (sunscreen, hand sanitizer, bug spray, toilet paper, etc.)
    • Group sizes and prices:

        • The group size for these tours is usually between 1–6 people with one guide. Groups can have up to 24 participants with several guides.
        • Costs per person decrease as the group grows, so it’s the perfect opportunity to ride with friends and family.
        • Standard tours require a minimum of 2 people to run. If you are a party of one, and if you are willing to pay the solo rate, your guide will guarantee that your tour runs – even if you end up being the only person on it. If, after making your reservation, someone else joins your tour, your rate will automatically drop to the 2-3 person rate.

      Mountain biking in Porcupine Rim can be arranged for bigger groups. Contact us prior to booking.
