Chris was an amazing guide, we weren't expecting all the places he took us too. The ebikes were awesome, my wife and I enjoyed the ride and the hills too :). Overall, if you can ride a bike...you can handle this amazing scenic ride.

Assistance with just 2 steps up from Mike... made a bucket list check mark for one 78 yr old man who just about lost his life to cancer just 2 months ago. These moments will be treasured for always... thank you Mike.
