If you’ve ever ridden an e-bike, you know how fun they can be. And if you’re new to the sport, there’s nowhere better to test the waters than the picturesque Arizona desert. Starting at the Sundial town center, set out on an adventure with a local guide. Cruise through the desert, learn about local flora and fauna, and get great photos and video along the way.

The scenery spoke for itself but Brandon brought the area to life with his knowledge of the flora and fauna. In addition, he was safe and thorough in his approach and this adventure was a highlight of our trip!
