Get to know some of the most amazing mountain bike trails in North America with our North Carolina Mountain Bike Tours. These guided mountain bike tours are designed to give you the opportunity to ride at your own pace and technical ability. Super technical or an easier pace: we can adjust. We have several options that will satisfy your off-road dreams with a variety in tour length and accommodations.
Our guided mountain bike tours are unique in that you can determine the difficulty of terrain you want to try. Plus you get to determine the dates of your tour, much like our self-guided tours! We are have experienced local guides for the riding, and we take care of the rest – hotel, breakfast, lunch, optional bike rentals, and much more.
You will be staying in Brevard, a beautiful small town in western North Carolina 20 miles from the Asheville airport. We pick you up at the airport, take you to your hotel or B&B (your option), and set you up on your bikes. From there you meet with the guides and formulate where and how you want to ride. There are three fantastic mountain biking areas nearby – Pisgah National Forest, Dupont State Forest, and Tsali Recreation Area. The riding can vary dramatically! You can stick to fire roads with moderate climbing or go crazy ripping on super-technical single track. The guides know the areas like the back of their hands, so they will show you the best stuff. See itinerary below.

Day 1: Arrive in Asheville
Fly into the Asheville Airport (AVL), where we will pick you up and take you to your hotel. Time permitting, we may fit you for your bike today—otherwise, you will be fit tomorrow morning. Rest up for your adventure!
Day 2: Ride!
Your first ride will likely be in DuPont State Forest, so named for the former owners, the DuPont Coporation. It has since been sold to the state and turned into a beautiful 10,000 acre multi-use park. It is here that you will test your legs and knock the travel-cobwebs out of your body with nearly 100 miles of trails to explore! Diverse terrain and a wide variety of trail difficulty can be found in this park.
Day 3: Ride!
Head back to DuPont or venture into Pisgah National Forest? You make the decision with the guides. Pisgah is the home of the Pisgah Mountain Bike Stage Race, which is the only mountain bike stage race on the east coast of the United States. You’ll find out why it is such an amazing race when you enjoy these trails.
Day 4: Ride!
Pisgah and DuPont remain yours to explore, with hundreds of miles of trails that you have not yet explored. Or, master a technical bit of a trail you already rode but didn’t master in the days before. Our guides will help you develop a plan and follow your lead.
Day 5: Ride!
Same as the day before! This is your tour to enjoy. We are available to take you to the trails you are craving. Make the most of it! This is your last day on the bike.
Day 6: Departure
We will transport you back to the Asheville airport if you need it, or extend your stay. If you are interested in adding an exploration to Tsali, please contact us for more info and pricing.
