Where do I pick up my bike rental?

Our location is at the Arizona Grand Resort, with easy access to the Pima Canyon Trailhead located at the base of South Mountain Park & Preserve (near I-10 & Baseline Road). You can find our exact location on Google Maps by clicking here. Please avoid using Apple Maps.

How close are the trails when I pick up my rental?

You can conveniently collect your rental bike from our trailer, located only 1.7 miles away from the Pima Canyon Trailhead. This trailhead offers access to the Desert Classic Trail, which is perfect for beginner to intermediate level riders. 

 

For intermediate riders, the Pima Canyon Loop trail is just 1/2 mile away from where you can collect your rental bike. From there, you can explore more challenging trails like Mormon, National, and Javalina. 

 

We suggest visiting our "Trails & GPS" page for recommended routes and downloadable GPS files to assist you on your biking adventure.

Are electric mountain bikes allowed on the trails?

Our electric mountain bikes for rent are classified as Class 1 and permitted on all Arizona parks and trails according to current bicycle regulations, including the South Mountain Park Preserve.

Cancellation or Rescheduling Policies 

We do appreciate the fact that with the current events regarding travel delays and cancelations, our cancelation policy is 12 hours. Give us a call, text, or WhatsApp at 480-688-4743.

How much experience do I need for a Guided Mountain Bike Tour?

When it comes to our tours, we cater to a wide range of skill levels, from beginner to expert. We want to ensure that we choose a ride that is suitable for your Skill/Fitness Level, so please be sure to let us know. After all, you're on vacation to have fun, not to be put through boot camp! We particularly enjoy taking new riders out for a spin, which we call Mountain Biking Fundamentals. Our strength lies in providing instruction and developing skills, so many riders are able to take what they've learned with us and apply it to their own trails.
