1/2 day Scottsdale mountain bike tour
Jim was our guide. He was very knowledgable of desert plants and history. We did a beginner mountain bike tour. Jim seemed to adjust the level as we felt comfortable. The desert was beautiful. The bike ride was challenging. The trails were awesome. We had a range of ages 17, 22 and 55. We all loved it. We highly recommend it.

Perfect day on the trails, thanks to REI
We had a group of three sisters, with our husbands and kids, for a total of 12 people. REI brought bikes & helmets for all of us in the correct sizes to Browns Ranch. They made sure to sanitize everything, and explained the gears, in case anyone was unfamiliar with them. They gave us suggestions for appropriate trails, and sent us on our way. The trails were beautiful, challenging, and fun for all, with cool places to stop and climb around! All we had to do when we finished was drop off the gear to the guys in the parking lot at the same meeting spot. I highly recommend this service if you are traveling and want a fun, no-hassle experience!

Excellent mountain biking tour
Highly recommend you go with REI if you’re thinking of doing a mountain bike tour in Scottsdale. Jim and Larry were outstanding guides and made sure everyone in our group was very well taken care of. The tour was the perfect pace and the scenery was just amazing. A+ tour all around.

Fun ride even in the rain
It was raining the day of our ride and it had been for several days prior. Trail was a sloppy mess but we had so much fun. Felt like a kid riding in the mud. Guide was happy to share his knowledge of the flora and fauna of the area. Communication with guide and REI Adventure Center was good.

Great Guide
Feb 2020
Steve, our guide, was very encouraging and knew the terrain well. This was my first time mountain biking. We were taken to Brown's Ranch Trailhead and rode 7.5 miles, 525' elevation. It wasn't easy, but it was beautiful. We had a nice small group, 5 people. The guide provided snacks and water too! Additionally, he provided info on history of the land and people as well as some tidbits about the environment. There are a lot of trails out there and we ended up going on parts of several different loops. We saw Cathedral Rock and other interesting features.

For other newbies: We all rented our bikes from REI. Half went with the upgraded models and said they really liked them. I had the basic bike which seemed fine for this trail. I had a little difficulty setting the gears comfortably and was constantly aware that I did not want to crash into a cactus. When leaning against the bike, beware of the spiked pedals and the chain. As a newby, I brushed against them and got some grease and small cuts on my leg - NOT a big deal. And I never crashed (into a cactus/chollo)!

No-Hassle and Professional Experience Allows More Time for Fun
Apr 2019 • Couples
Very patient, attentive and helpful customer service while trying to set up bike rentals while we were vacationing in Arizona. Answered every question quickly, and in excellent detail. Had very good ongoing communications about our reservation. They offered trailhead delivery service to Brown's Ranch trailhead in Scottsdale, which worked out great since our rental car couldn't accommodate the right kind of bike rack to transport the bikes we rented.

We even got a call from them the morning of our rental, letting us know where their delivery vehicles were parked at the trailhead.

The bikes were in great shape. Had a great time riding in the desert-type terrain... no problems at all with the bikes.

Very friendly and low-key staff, which made the whole ride a very enjoyable experience.
