WOW!!!!! Epic time with Mario. He grew up in Big Bear, knows all the ins and outs. Took an awesome mountain bike tour with him. You can either bring your own bike or rent one. He took me up a couple peaks, I booked him for two days, both were amazing.
My family has been coming to Big Bear Lake for multiple generations to stay and vacation at a family owned cabin that was built in the 1920’s. I thought I had seen it all up here over the years. I was wrong! On a whim we decided to take a bike tour with Mario and I was totally blown away. Mario has an amazingly in-depth knowledge of the history and layout of Big Bear. I learned so much about the land, lake, people, animals, and the way the area has developed over the years I was truly blown away. Plus, we had such a fun time as a family! By the end of the tour I felt like Mario has been a friend of mine for years!
There are quite a few options of bikes (electric/mountain) and paths to explore. It was very reasonably priced and we had a blast. I plan on making this something we do frequently. Do yourself a favor and book a tour with Mario! You will not regret it. Money well spent!
My wife and I did a 2 hour e-bike tour. It was a beautiful ride, scenic and informative! I loved learning about the lake and the valley. You gotta do this tour if you want to see Big Bear like the locals do!
I recommend this bike tour to anyone who wants to see Big Bear like the locals do. Mario gave us the tour and I just have to say… HE IS AWESOME!!!
