Went with my wife to to the bike down tour, unsure what to expect. The group was a great mix of experienced and inexperienced bikers, as well as various ages. Our guides did a great job pacing the group well for different speeds at different sections, keeping the bikes maintained, keeping everyone entertained, fostering a fun dynamic within the group and most importantly keeping everyone safe.
We had poor visibility for the lower half of the mountain with thick fog as we rode through the clouds but our guides kept everyone safe as well as directed traffic around us. For the upper sections we had amazing visibility and fantastic views moving through different zones and temperatures down the mount which provided a varied experience. Our guides kept everyone hydrated and made sure everyone was comfortable with the ride as we went down. Lunch was well organized and delicious.
Some of the less experienced riders would sometimes get to close to the middle of the road or other riders causing screeching rubber at times. Other riders would move to the front of the group when the group had stopped which increased the number of instances of passing. A quick overview regarding biking etiquette might go a long way, i.e. keeping distance, staggered riding and maintaining order once the group stops.
Would definitely consider going back, would love to see a self guided tour option from the summit (i.e. bike rental, a lift to the top of the mountain and a pickup at the bottom). If you like being outdoors and aren't afraid of a few heights and a little exercise, this is definitely for you.
