Half-Day Scottsdale Mountain Biking Tour
Are you a biking enthusiast? If so, there’s no reason you can’t be biking while you’re on vacation in Scottsdale. With so many national parks in the area with bikeable trails, you can bike on a new trail practically every day. And with a guided Arizona bike tour, you can experience some of the lesser known trails while learning about the desert.
Adventure on Two Wheels
Arizona Outback Adventures (AOA) has guided adventures for a variety of activities, including Scottsdale mountain biking. They have a biking tour that will fit every age bracket and every fitness level. If you love bikes and the desert, you have to try their Half-Day Scottsdale Mountain Bike Tour. AOA’s half-day biking adventure takes full advantage of the nearby McDowell Sonoran Preserve’s biking trails and most tours start at the Preserve’s Brown’s Ranch Trailhead.
Using a guide on your adventure will allow you to get the most out of your biking adventure. AOA’s knowledgeable guides will use your bike preferences (pedal type, how often you ride etc.) and the type of terrain you are interested in – easy trail riding or more technical rocky sections and big rock drops, and singletrack or wider track – to match you to the trail best suited for you. You decide what type of desert adventure you want, and the AOA guide will find the best trail for the best experience. And, all of the Preserve’s trails offer amazing views of the surrounding mountains and deserts, so no matter your preferences, you’ll be enjoying the best of the desert while doing something you love. And, your guide will provide interesting facts about the desert’s unique plants and animals as well as its history while you bike along trail winding through the desert landscape.
