Beautiful view. Fairly challenging ride for me but not quite challenging for my avid biker family. Nice stop along the lake. The equipment was good and worked well.
Good equipment. Try informative guide.
This tour guide was fabulous! He always had a smile on his face. He never rushed us and he was always making sure we felt okay. What an amazing young man.
