Biking

Biking in the desert gives the biker excellent surface conditions. The terrain of the high desert and the beautiful rock formations makes a trip you will not forget. Due to the heat and aridity carrying plenty of drinking water is a must for your safety. You will most likely need twice the water you would normally take on a trip. The best times to bike in this area is in the early morning - especially during late spring, summer and early fall. With the warm days, your Lycra shorts may not be the best biking outfit. Sunscreen is a must for everyone. Well tanned people will surprisingly need it, too. Your sunglasses will be helpful with the glaring sun. Carrying a tool kit and a spare is recommended and definitely do not forget the first aid kit which should include tweezers (Cacti are abundant in many places.) and snake bite kit.

Off-road biking is done on the jeep and dirt road, since mountain bikes are not permitted on hiking trails. Despite this there are many great trails in the area. You may want to check out the trails in the Mount Potasi area.
