The sport of mountain biking can be intimidating at first: rocks to ride over, dirt trails, no cars, and a full suspension bike. But, Tahoe Mountain Guides take the worry out of mountain biking! If you are new to mountain biking, TMG will start you off on our Manzanita Mountain Bike Tour… a get to know the bike, type of terrain you may encounter while riding a mountain bike, and most importantly, to have fun.
The Manzanita Tour will begin on gentle fire road with minimal hill climbing and descents. Our exceptional guides at TMG will instruct you how to shift the bike, proper foot position and technique for climbing and descending the mtb trail, as well as when to sit or to get out of the saddle. Each and every rider will become comfortable on the dirt and gravel fire road before we ever venture on to single mountain bike trails.
When our guides access your riding ability, we will then exit the fire road and explore some lite single-track mountain bike trails. The pace is always yours and the views and landscape is always breathtaking. We will encourage you to look ahead, get familiar with your surroundings and enjoy the sport of mountain biking with a smile.
Please note: mountain biking may cause giddiness, extreme exhilaration, a smile, and cause you to make an entire new set of friends. If over 21, TMG suggest you finish a mountain bike ride with a beer and never consult your doctor.
Happy riding! The TMG Crew.
