Personalized Mountain Bike Lessons & Guided Tours for Beginners to Advance
All of our mountain bike tours start off nice ’n easy on paved bike paths through the forests of Tahoe’s shore line. From here we will make our way to the single tracks and more exciting routes. We also give our groups the option to take the paved path home rather than the single track if you got a good trail whooping.
When you take a ride with Inclusive Excursions, ego is put aside and the fun takes its place. It doesn’t matter if you’re a pro or a newby… everyone gets the same treatment when asking for advice. We pride ourselves on becoming one of your riding buddies rather than a “guide” where you have to follow the rules of the tour. With us the only rule is have fun.
We are most definitely pushing each other’s limits on advanced group rides. That’s what makes the rides fun! If you know how to ride, odds are you don’t want to play follow the leader all day… you wanna ride! That’s what we’re all about. If I am the one leading the group, feel free to blow past me! Be aggressive, pedal your heart out, and have fun!
We are always happy to give advice to those who are looking to grow their skills. Like I said, you can be a beginner or a pro. There is always room for improvement. Let us know your skill set and where you want to improve before the ride. One of us will watch you throughout the ride and offer you pointers on how to improve. We are also totally down to capture some videos for our riders! Just let us know where and when on the trail.

“Out of the Gate”
Are you fresh out of the gate? Just stating off? This is the tour for you. This will be a private training session so you can start off on the right foot.
“Just the Tip”
This is just the tip of the MTB iceberg. If you are a somewhat entry-level rider, but want to take it to the next level this is a great tour for you.
“The Whole Shebang”
In this group ride, we get to experience the breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe from one of our favorite vista point lookouts. Eat your Wheaties this morning because we are gonna be burnin’ some carbs! You will experience winding single track, fun downhills as well as some climbing, and a decent amount of pedaling. This one is geared more for the intermediate to advanced riders looking for a good trail to ride with some buddies.
What To Bring:
Your mountain bike
Helmet / safety equipment
Water bottle or blatter bag

Meet Our Guides!
Casey has been an outdoor enthusiast his entire life. He remembers growing up building bike jumps and trails with his older brothers in the backyard. Since then, Casey got into racing dirt bikes and mountain bikes on a regular basis. He was awarded volunteer of the year and eventually became Director of Operations and Maintenance for the town bike track. He spent the summer of 2020 traveling and mountain bike in different states. He still has trouble deciding his favorite trail between The Whole Enchilada in Moab Utah or Mt. Ashland in Ashland Oregon.
Casey is very detail-focused when teaching others, and can accommodate all skill levels. He enjoys teaching brand new riders just as much as teaching skilled riders specific techniques to get through the trails faster and smoother. “The best part about teaching and doing group rides is making a game out of everything. First one down, highest drop, fastest line, or a simple game of tag. It’s just fun. That’s what it’s all about!”
