Very informative and enjoyable bike ride. Steve was a great guide with lots of history of the area and kept us safe. Date shake at the end was a very pleasant bonus! Would highly recommend this tour.

My husband and I did the Earthquake Canyon Downhill Bike Adventure with the best guide we have ever had in all our travels -- Ron. He is very knowledgeable and told us very interesting things about the terrain, wildlife and Native American culture as we stopped along the say. He is friendly, professional and passionate about his work. The ride itself was fantastic -- a great ride with beautiful, interesting scenery all around -- and Ron made it even better. I would highly recommend this ride to anyone -- even if you are not a frequent bike rider. The downhill ride is easy to do.

Rented a couple carbon road bikes (half week) from Evan to keep the spring training alive while in Palm Springs on family vacay. Evan and his crew... incredibly nice/friendly, bikes were dialed, and a great resource for riding areas - mtn or road. BUT - then I hit a razor blade about 5 miles into our first ride... destroyed my rear tire. Lucky enough these guys equip the saddle bag kits with a great little repair kit including a tire sleeve which allowed me to limp the remaining 30miles home. THEN the next morning there was a new tire/tube/cartridge etc outside my door - dropped off by Evan's crew - amazing - WHAT SERVICE!? BWTs provide everything you need with a high end bike rental. 10/10

Thanks Dylan! Too bad our phones were down that day due to our move or we may have even been able to provide AAA style roadside assistance!

Jeep tour into Joshua Tree Park: This is not a 'jeep on a highway' trip: true off-roading by experienced (Ali) guide; Really fun, educational, unique. Direct route into the park, felt like we owned the place as no one else goes this route. Very positive!

Thank you Jim! Yes, Ali is terrific. She has a B.S. in Geology and her family has been living in the Joshua Tree area for generations. We definitely like the remote feel of our particular route. Glad you had fun!
