Fun ride for couples

We were looking for an outdoor activity for my Double Nickels birthday while on vacation. We enjoyed the canyon ride and there was a breeze the entire time. It was a mix of peddling and coasting. A fun way to spend a morning while my husband and I enjoyed the scenery and laughed about childhood bike riding stories! A day later it is important to know that we are not sore and we are not elite athletes by any means. 😂 Thanks to our guide Ben for keeping us safe and sharing his knowledge of the area….such a nice guy, well spoken, well traveled with an obvious love of nature.
