Ride Planning Center

TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence

Our bike rental store is conveniently located in North Scottsdale at the foot of the McDowell Mountains, near Frank Lloyd Wright and the 101 freeway. Here on the edge of the city and the desert, there are a multitude of bike routes perfect for every level of rider.

From our shop, it is only a couple easy miles riding on the road along well-maintained bike lanes to exciting technical mountain bike trails and scenic paved bike paths. For easier trail riding with fewer technical features, we recommend transporting your bikes to another area, a short drive away, with fun flowy singletrack. Car rack rentals are available if needed.

Get in touch online or give us a call 1-866-455-1601 for more information!
