Owner description: McGhie's Ski, Bike and Board specializes in personalized, private road and mountain bike tours. We provide a unique experience for individuals, small groups and large corporate events. Tours include pick up and drop off at your hotel, professional guide, bicycle rental, water and basic energy food. We do not believe in a "one size fits all" tour and work hard to make your ride the highlight of your Las Vegas vacation. We are now offering hiking tours of the Red Rock National Conservation Area with the same attention to detail for our guests. It is just you and your guide who is 100% focused on providing the best experience for YOU-not you and 6 strangers. Our goal is always to make your time with McGhie's the highlight of your Las Vegas experience.

If you're thinking about doing a Mountain Bike tour when in Vegas, stop thinking and go do it with these guys.
Prior to my leaving Australia, I had been in email contact with Amy numerous times and this ensured everything was in order and organised for my tour.
My guide, Bobby, emailed me the night before and confirmed he'll pick me up at 0830 - too easy.
When we arrived at the outpost my bike was ready, complete with my pedal system, I was very impressed with the bike, a great Trek 650b that looked and felt very new and handled beautifully !

Bobby took the time to talk with me about my expectations of the day and my abilities , he presented options at times on which way to go , I told him I didn't fly all the way over the pacific to ride 8 miles so keep going ! we flowed through some sweet Nevada single-track doing about 30km.
We met up with another guide Amy and her client and the 4 of us rode together which was pretty cool.
Very different terrain and landscape than where I'm from and that just added to the epic adventure.
So much fun to be had out there.
Back to the outpost for a gatorade, a bit of a chat and a nice drive back to the hotel.
thanks for a great day and I'll be back next time we're in Vegas !

Thank you so much for the great review! It can be difficult to communicate with some of our international guests, so your emails were very helpful in making it a great day for you. Bobby is a pro at figuring out the best route for his guests-all of our guides are!
Although our tours are private-we don't mix rides/riders, it is so fun when two groups come together and make for an extra good time.
Please come back and ride with us again!

I was in Vegas on April 24th, and decided to hire McGhies to provide a guided MTB trip. The weather in the Cottonwood was exceptional and Bobby knew the trails very well, including some that were more challenging. As a frequent rider at home, interesting trails and a great guide were super important. Viagra, especially, was a hoot! The Cannondale Trigger was setup perfectly for me by the Blue Diamond outpost. Definitely highly recommended and I would do again. McGhies has organized a top notch guide operation. The offers of strong bike shop coffee and the on-time pickup and return to my hotel was a bonus. This was proof that "not everything that happens in Vegas stays in Vegas."

I love your "on time pickup" comment! It IS something that we pride ourselves on. We are also flexible and can change the pickup time as your plans change. We like to reming our guests that the tour is "all about you." If we don't show up early, we are late!
Viagra is a highlight for most riders...who doesn't love a fast, flowing bobsled run? It is great that you got to experience our upgraded bike-the extra $20.00 is certainly worth it!
We look forward to seeing you again, Joe and exploring more of our trails!

From start to finish I had an excellent experience with McGhies. I booked well in advance and had excellent communication confirming the details with Amy who was very flexible as I wasn't sure how late my flight would be.

My ride was with who had set up an excellent Trek perfectly for me and we rode around the "Red Rock Canyon Scenic route" which is a beautiful ride with minimum traffic. It was a bit windy and fairly hilly but I got there in the end and thoroughly enjoyed the ride! If I'm ever back in Vegas I would definitely do this again and possibly a mountain bike route next time.

Steven, you had such a huge smile on your face at the end of your ride, it makes our day perfect! You managed the wind well and I am so happy that the bike (Trek Madone with Dura Ace) was excellent. Although we have fewer choices of roads than we do mountain bike trails, we have many folks return every year to do "the Loop." It is such a beautiful and challenging ride!
We would love to show you our mountain bike trails, too on your next visit to Las Vegas!

The glowing reviews for McGhies are fully deserved. Would you rather sit in a smoky casino drinking booze, or hit sweet single track in stunning surroundings with a fantastic guide? Sign me up for option b, please! Booking was easy, service was prompt and friendly, pickup from the hotel was smooth, the bikes were fantastic, Blue Diamond is an incredibly quaint town and launching point, and the trails are endless, smooth, and exceptionally scenic. What really made it great was our guide, Tim: friendly, knowledgable, resourceful (found road pedals for one of our group who brought road pedals by mistake), and just a great guy to spend the morning with. McGhies is highly recommended on all counts. I'll be back!

Thank you for the excellent review! I am so happy you toured with us. Unfortunately we have to turn down tours on busy weekends because we have such a high standard for our guides. Tim has been such a welcome addition to our team in the past year. All of our guides are older (average age in the 40'), totally focused on our guests (this is not about our guides getting a ride in-it is about our guides finding the perfect ride for you) and have a wide variety of life experiences.

WE look forward to seeing you again in Las Vegas!

We were in Vegas for our wedding and we booked a guided mountain bike ride in Red Rocks with McGhie's. Our guide, Bobby, was not only a great guy but also a knowledgeable guide. Bobby took us on awesome trails with stunning views and rides that matched our skills but also gave us the experience we were looking for. Our bikes were top notch and the day was one that we will never forget. Absolutely top notch value for the money!

Bobby has been a mainstay with McGhie's since the shallow sea covering Nevada receded millions of years ago! He is a popular guide and has shaped the philosophy of focusing 100% on his guests. The goal is always to have the bike tour with McGhie's to be the highlight of any trip to Las Vegas. It looks like he once again succeeded!
Thank you so much for the great reviews and emphasizing Bobby's great work. We look forward to seeing you again!
