Had a great 20 mile down hill bike ride through the desert earthquake landscape of Box Canyon, ending at the agricultural valley in Mecca. Interesting to see the canyon geology followed by the Salton Sea and green juxtaposed with the desert. Finished the day off with a delicious date shake! Our guide Amy was fantastic too.

Our family party of 9 from England and Australia with age range of 9-73 yrs. were treated to a terrific desert experience of the Joshua Tree National Park by 2 wonderful drivers Ron and George.
Their passion for the desert was evident with all the information they took the time to share with us.
Because we were staying in Joshua Tree we were able to all go on a 2hr. hike, drive around the park and the children had fun climbing at Skull Rock.
I was very impressed with the courtesy and the way Evan handled our booking which we had done from Australia

Awesome 20 mile downhill tour for casual bicycle riders. Especially loved learning about the interaction of geology and history first hand. Stopping in Mecca for a date shake was a great treat after the ride.

Ron, who took us on the ride, was smart, informative and had an obvious passion for the desert. The ride itself, 20 miles, is very easy - predominantly a glide down a gently sloping road. Good value for money, and strongly recommended.
