We are 3 women friends who chose this excursion and are so happy that we did. Our guide, Ben, was excellent. Informative, thorough and patient he answered all our questions and showed us many points of interest. For those of you who are concerned about the length of the ride, etc., rest assured it's so easy. Almost all of it downhill, you barely have to pedal. We are all in our 60's and managed really well. Bikes and helmets are fitted to each individual. The road traveled is mostly empty of traffic and smooth. The surrounding area is magnificent as only mother nature can be. You determine when, where, how often you stop. Water and snacks are provided. Bring a camera or phone. You'll never run out of things to photograph. Starting early meant we avoided the major heat of the day. There was always a comfortable breeze as well. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip. Recommend it highly!!

Jeff, our guide, ensured that we had a very safe, fun, and informative ride. We went 18 miles, but it was mostly downhill with small flat sections. I would highly recommend this for a tour. We learned a lot about the geography of the area. At the end, we were treated to a date shake. I’m a very fussy eater and don’t like dates. It was an amazing treat. Great tour!

Our guide, Ron, made this trip! He was so engaging, so knowlegable about the area and taught us so much. The bikes were excellent. He had plenty of water for us, which was great given how dry and warm it was!

Excellent bike ride in the desert

Excellent experience from pick up to drop off. The size of the group was perfect; 6. Ben is very personable as well as very knowledgeable about the geography and geology of the area. The bikes were in good condition, the road too! We had a beautiful weather day; sunny, not too hot . The ride itself is easy, a little work against the wind, many places to coast downhill. I recommend this activity for a anyone who would like to experience this part of the desert up close.
