What you'll do
A perfect experience for active couples and the bikes are included! Up to 2 guests will meet at the Sweetwater Preserve trail head, here I will provide the mountain bikes and adjust them to the riders height (around 5'3" to 6'4" tall) and then off we go biking the trails. Overall, this trail is rated as easy with rolling single track hills and little elevation gain (350 ft), but there may be a couple of areas that some riders may need to hop off and bike walk. Please note that this is a guided tour and not a mountain biking class. Guests are required to have mountain bike experience (braking, shifting and steering skills are essential). On the trail we will see beautiful vistas surrounding the Saguaro National Park as well as the diverse desert landscape as we traverse the Tucson Mountains. We will stop occasionally for picture opportunities, water and energy bar breaks and for descriptions of the landscape. The entire ride is about 10 miles total and will take about 2 to 2.5 hours (depending on skill levels and photo opportunities). Ride times are a bit flexible, so feel free to message if you need an alternative time.
I have been an Airbnb Superhost for nearly 4 years and have absolutely loved meeting and hosting hundreds of guests to my home near the Saguaro National Park over this time and I am proud to have earned a nearly perfect 5 star rating! I am also an avid cyclist that has explored Tucson, both on and off road for nearly 30 years. I live a half mile from one of the most scenic mountain biking trail systems in Arizona and have guided friends and family through its miles of gorgeous trails that intertwine the Saguaro National Park for years and now it's time to share this experience!

Where you'll be
I will be guiding 2 mountain bikers through the Sweetwater Preserve that winds its way through the beautiful Saguaro National Park and the Tucson Mountains located just West of Tucson (about 20 minutes from downtown). We will see a rare crested Saguaro, ocotillo and cholla cactus gardens, vast desert vista's, desert wildlife and wildflowers (depending on the time of year).

Guests should be in good physical shape and have biking experience. Most of the trail is easy, but there are hills, loose rocks and short areas that might require walking the bike for some riders
