Attraction details
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.

“My best experience in Vegas!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

After being turned down by several other bike tours, I called McGhie's around 4:00 on Thursday afternoon looking for a Friday mountain bike ride. They gave me Amy's number and she arranged the ride. I am convinced that I ended up with the best ride in Vegas. Amy is very professional and caters the ride to your individual ability level, always keeping safety a number one priority. Do yourself a favor and book a bike ride with Amy. You will be glad that you did!!!

Hank, we had a great day on the trails! Not only was the ride excellent, but the conversation was easy and interesting. Our guests make our jobs the best the in the world! Thank you so much for the review and for the great hint of a bacon garnish on a bloody Mary!
We look forward to seeing you again :)

“Best Birthday Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

YOU MUST DO THIS! I wrote in an email to four girlfriends inviting them to my birthday weekend in Vegas. Two responded enthusiastically and the other two conspired a plan to get out of it citing their cycling inexperience. This isn't what you do in Vegas they whined. And to be fair our previous trips to Sin City had centered around shopping, food, alcohol, and more alcohol. On the phone, Amy reassured my husband that the rides can be tailored to the skills and experience in the group. Ah-ha! I texted the conspirators, no getting out of this. I promised that the night before would be a mellow evening in order that we'd be fresh and ready to go for our 8 am pick up. Our group consisted of seven with two guys and five women and biking experience ranging from expert to I think I remember how to ride a bike. Bobby picked all of us in a van from our hotel on the strip and soon we found ourselves outside of a little bike shop surrounded by the gorgeous, scenic Nevada dessert. After fitting us individually on bikes, ensuring our helmets were properly secured, Amy explained the forthcoming ride. Equal amounts of anticipation and dread filled the air as Amy promised it would be a ride that anybody could do. Sure enough Amy and Bobby provided us with expert guidance and on-the-go coaching; keep your feet in the 3 and 9 position, don't look down, and best of all, don't be afraid of the rocks, just roll over them. To everyone's relief, we ended up splitting into two groups with Amy taking the more experienced of us down challenging rides with names like Viagra and Bobby leading the others on a slower albeit challenging pace. All of us were thrilled with the ride and raving about Amy and Bobby's amazing abilities to manage our diverse group. They have a terrific sense of humor and thoroughly know mountain biking. We are all ready talking about our return trip! Even the conspirators.

Thank you for the wonderful review! It will be very helpful to others by highlighting our ability to manage groups of diverse ability. McGhie's is unique in that we automatically assign a second guide to mountain bike tours with 5 or more riders-at no extra charge! Safety and guest satisfaction are our priorities and it is impossible to provide an over-the-top experience for five riders with just one guide.
Bobby and Amy have worked together at McGhie's Ski, Bike and Board Bicycle Tours for almost a decade and we think it is a great team. Thanks again for the kudos and we look forward to seeing you on your next trip!

“Great Views, Great Guide!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

Squeezed in a mountain bike ride during a business trip. Amy was great to work with setting it up. My guide Ben took me on some nice scenic trails and was an excellent pack mule. Such a welcome change from the stip. I highly recommend!!!

Thanks for the great review! With our June business quadrupled over last year, I am so happy we could accommodate you and end your Las Vegas business trip on a high note! Ben is a part time guide with us (fully time manager at our main retail location) . He was a great match for you to ride with and I think he had as much fun as you did! Hopefully like many of our guests, business will bring you to the Mojave Desert on a regular basis and we can host you once again.

“Great Day out with Tim & Brian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

Thoroughly recommended - we were a party of 7 guys of mixed abilities.

Tim picked us up from our hotel - 30 minutes later bikes and kit were issued and we then spent 2.5 hours up and down the trails.

The instruction and guiding was excellent - two very experienced and fun loving guys who knew the area like the back of their hands.

It was reasonably challenging and very hot - but we were given loads of water and electrolyte and the route was tailored constantly according to the conditions and our fitness. I would have no hesitation in recommending both guides and also Amy, from McGhie's who arranged the trip.

After the ride we were dropped off afterwards at the hotel - total trip time about 4 hours.

Thank you McGhie's!

Thank you for the great review, Tim! We appreciate you spreading the word on our ability to handle groups of mixed levels of fitness and skill! As soon as a private group hits 5 riders, we automatically provide a second guide for the ride. Your safety and satisfaction is our #1 priority and you have seen how we can expand the experience for everyone by giving each rider exactly the type of ride they want!
I appreciate your excellent communication prior to the ride and look forward to hosting you or any of your other riders in the future!

“GREAT RIDE .... KEPT THE MAP .... THANKS CHRIS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

We have been to Vegas many times and this is one of the best adventures we have had. Everything just fell into place. Two of us had never mountain biked. The other is keen but slightly wacked. We organised it all in a few hours at a bar. We drove to the shop for 8am hoping for a guided tour. We met Chris and he explained that his 12 year old guide was in school so we would have to brave, the Indian Burial Grounds, cactus, rattlers, scorpions and Viagra all by our selves. By chance, Amy wondered in, off duty guide, and held our hands for the first little bit. Amy could smell Canadian rugby guys in the valley and within a breath we were left to eat her dust. We recommend thoroughly to check Chris, Amy and the team out. It is well worth the adventure. Well done guys, great setup with a and beautiful back drop.

Oh my gosh, I am still embarrassed by our day on the trails! It is so rare that I go out to ride on my own and I definitely was not in "tour guide mode" in getting you guys safely out of town and to the meat of our awesome trail system. I appreciate the great review as ours was an unofficial tour. Chris is fantastic and always will put a smile on anyone's face!
When you return to Vegas, please let me know and we will provide a proper tour for you!
