Escape winter! Sedona is a rider's paradise. Enjoy epic views of the red rock

Our professional guides will plan your tour based on your skill level and riding goals, taking all the guesswork out of map reading and choosing which trails to ride. If you'd like some instructional time as well, just let us know. Our guides are also PMBIA and BICP certified instructors and are ready to help you take your riding to the next level. With options for Intermediate through Advanced riders, our experienced guides will put together a riding trip that permanent grin on your face.

You pick your riding dates. Rates start at $125.00 per day, per person and include professionally guided mountain bike riding with a tailored itinerary based on your skill level, Red Rock permit (where required), and trail snacks.
