A “must do” experience
MElizabeth_B

This excursion will be enjoyed by almost anyone! Our guide, Joe was terrific- he outfitted my 89 year old father with a pedal assist bike, and he was able to complete the bike trip with no problems. The views were amazing - as we traversed the fault lines, witnessing giant plates of rock pushing upward out of the soil, we stopped often for photos! This is a must do if you are in the area.

Exhilarating bike ride amid spectacular scenery. SO much fun. We are 70+ active seniors. Ben was an amazing guide describing geological and historical features that we passed on the ride out and back to Boxwood Canyon. The bikes were great as was the paved road. Kudos for a 5 star plus guide and tour

Amazing country, like none I’ve ever seen before. Great guide. Biking was mostly easy and fun. Fig shakes were an extra treat at the end!

Thank you Margaret! It is an otherworldly landscape out there. And, just so none of our future guests are disappointed, they are actually date shakes that we try to arrange at the end of this tour.

Perfect Tour For Me!

Joel was a fantastic guide! He was engaging, punctual, and informative! He took extra time to make sure I was comfortable, didn't overheat, and got the experience I wanted. Although the outdoor temperature was hot, the bicycle ride was the perfect temperature with wind and ice cold water to drink. I would do this tour again, for sure! 100°F outside, no problem with this tour.

We had a great morning, beautiful ride, easy (for all ages) and educational. The entire ride was downhill and the landscape changed as the ride went on. The Canon was breathtaking and last stretch coming down the road into the fields of grapes and date palms was beautiful, not to mention the Salton Sea off to the south. Riders were 37,40,44 and 60.

Thank you Brandy! That was actually Joel's first official tour so I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour.

Fun ride for couples

We were looking for an outdoor activity for my Double Nickels birthday while on vacation. We enjoyed the canyon ride and there was a breeze the entire time. It was a mix of peddling and coasting. A fun way to spend a morning while my husband and I enjoyed the scenery and laughed about childhood bike riding stories! A day later it is important to know that we are not sore and we are not elite athletes by any means. 😂 Thanks to our guide Ben for keeping us safe and sharing his knowledge of the area….such a nice guy, well spoken, well traveled with an obvious love of nature.
