What tour is right for me?
Our tours range from BEGINNER to INTERMEDIATE/SPORT to ADVANCED/EXPERT in difficulty.
Tours are suitable for riders with no experience to an average fitness level. Flat to moderate hills and descents are typically and of short duration. Trail surfaces are relatively even with occasional obstacles on trail (rocks, roots, sand).
Tours are suitable for riders with good to excellent fitness level. Some type of previous mountain bike experience is recommended(2-3 rides/wk). Trail surfaces may include uneven terrain and narrow trails, singletrack, with occasional obstacles (roots, rocks, sand). Hills and descents are moderate to strenuous and require some skill that can be either ridden or walked. Riders with minimal mountain bike experience, but who have basic road biking skills or a strong fitness level, along with an adventurous spirit, should be suitable for an intermediate tour.
Tours are suitable for experienced mountain bikers only with excellent fitness and strong bike handling skills. Riding is on rough fireroads with frequent obstacles or high elevation, and narrow tight singletrack. Sections of trail can be very challenging with frequent ascents and descents of significant length.
Do I need special shoes?
No you do not. Running or exercise shoes is all that you need. If you have your own riding shoes, we have clipless pedals to accommodate you.
Is there any hiking?
Plenty! There are great scenic hikes on all of our tours. There are amazing hikes, if biking isnt your thing. My favorite is the sunset hike. Hiking offers the perfect opportunity to see more of the amazing scenery surrounding Los Angeles.
