Meet your guides in Moab and hop in the shuttle or follow in your own vehicle to the trailhead outside town. Get fitted to your bike and enjoy an introduction to the bikes and basic mountain bike skills with time to practice at the trailhead.

Then, experience an invigorating half-day ride of 7-10 miles. There's also options for longer or shorter distances, or more challenging terrain, to fit everyone's skill level and stamina.

The Courthouse Loop trail did not disappoint! I thought it was going to be very easy and was considering cancelling. I'm glad I didn't! It has a variety of surfaces that vary in difficulty level but you have it all. It was my first time on a mountain bike on a trail like this. The bike was great. Our guide was amazing. I recommend to anyone considering this bike tour, to just do it.

Guide was very knowledgeable, helpful and patient. Showed us interesting things on the ride. Brought plenty of extra water and snacks. Bikes were incredible! Overall, an excellent experience. Would recommend being in decent shape and having some previous riding experience to get the most out of this tour.
