The Sonoran Desert boasts some of the most stunning scenery anywhere, and Tucson’s world-class trails offer a bird’s eye view. From smooth, sinewy singletrack that weaves through Saguaro forests to backcountry steeps with challenging rock ledges and roll-downs, Tucson riding has it all. We have an intimate relationship with these trails, as our guides are also advocates and volunteers, performing hundreds of hours annually of trail maintenance and building. We keep our finger on the pulse of mountain biking, and the result is passion for quality equipment, guides dedicated to your safety and enjoyment, customized tours to meet your riding ability, and an experience you won’t soon forget! We can’t wait to show you the endless possibilities that exist for you and your bike!
