Wat je gaat doen

A perfect experience for active couples and the bikes are included! Up to 2 guests will meet at the Sweetwater Preserve trail head, here I will provide the helmets, gloves, water and mountain bikes. We will adjust the bikes to the riders height (around 5'3" to 6'4" tall) and then off we go biking the trails. Overall, this trail is rated as easy/moderate with rolling single track hills and little elevation gain (350 ft). The trail is narrow and runs alongside some steep hills at times with switchbacks and rocks, so guests are required to have mountain bike experience (braking, shifting and steering skills are essential). There may be a couple of areas that some riders may need to hop off and bike walk. Please note that this is a guided tour and not a mountain biking class. On the trail we will see beautiful vistas surrounding the Saguaro National Park as well as the diverse desert landscape as we traverse the Tucson Mountains. We will stop occasionally for picture opportunities, water and energy bar breaks and for descriptions of the landscape. The entire ride is about 8 miles total and will take about 2 to 2.5 hours (depending on skill levels and photo opportunities). Ride times are a bit flexible, so feel free to message if you need an alternative time. I also have 2 great Airbnb listings nearby, so check my profile or message if you need accommodations!
Other things to note
Guests should be in good physical shape and are required to have mountain biking experience. There are narrow trails that run along steep hills, loose rocks, tight turns and short areas that might require walking the bike for some riders. Please do not book if you are not a mountain biker.

I have been an Airbnb Superhost for nearly 4 years and have absolutely loved meeting and hosting hundreds of guests to my home near the Saguaro National Park over this time and I am proud to have earned a nearly perfect 5 star rating! I am also an avid cyclist that has explored Tucson, both on and off road for nearly 30 years. I live a half mile from one of the most scenic mountain biking trail systems in Arizona and have guided friends and family through its miles of gorgeous trails that intertwine the Saguaro National Park for years and now it's time to share this experience!

We will see a rare crested Saguaro, ocotillo and cholla cactus gardens, vast desert vista's, desert wildlife and wildflowers (depending on the time of year).

We had an absolute blast on our first-ever mountain biking experience! Justin was an excellent guide, who was truly interested in ensuring we had a wonderful time. He took the time to set up the bikes specifically for us and get us comfortable riding them before we headed out on the trail. He gave us plenty of warning for slightly tricky areas on the route and made sure we always felt under control. The trail location was great, and Justin made several stops for beautiful views of the surrounding mountains, Tucson, interesting areas of vegetation, etc. He shared lots of fun stories about the area and gave us several good recommendations for food and other nearby places to visit. We highly recommend Justin and this mountain biking experience.

My wife and I had a great time cycling with Justin. The bikes he provided were exactly right for the terrain and the ride through the preserve was slightly challenging at a few uphills, but mostly great fun riding on well-groomed trails through a beautiful setting. Equally positive was the conversation with Justin along the way. Justin is a friendly, informative guy who's a great ambassador for Tucson. We'd recommend this experience to everyone interested in a fun, active experience of the beautiful side of Tucson. Five Stars ******, only because I can't give Six!

Riding with Justin was one of the highlights of my time in Tucson! He was ready with the bikes prepped when I arrived, and the plus-sized tire and front suspension was perfect for the terrain. Justin’s knowledge of the trail system allowed us to chose a route well suited for my abilities and he made sure to stop for breaks at the best views. Most of all, I appreciated his friendliness and relaxed attitude. It’s great to feel like you’re just out riding with a friend when traveling in a new place. Thanks Justin!

So glad I did this! Scenery was spectacular, and Justin taught me more than I ever knew about the mighty sagauro cactus and other amazing things about desert flora, all while expertly navigating the trail. Justin was perceptive of and accommodating to my ability level. Not only did we ride (and walk some!), but we shared stories and other life experiences along the way. I'll definitely be booking this again next year on my annual trip to Tucson!

We had a wonderful bike tour with Justin! It was a great way to spend 2 hours seeing the Sonoran dessert with an experienced guide. We made plenty of stops where Justin shared interesting facts about the area, plant life, and other tidbits that only a local would know! The trail itself was fun, narrow with ups and downs, and some rocky areas. It was perfect to go in February.
