OAKHURST– Pedal Forward Bikes & Adventure, a bike shop and outdoor adventure provider in the southern Yosemite region, is delighted to announce the successful launch of its first year offering guided biking and hiking experiences in the breathtaking Sierra National Forest. The company’s achievement culminated in acquiring a coveted special use permit after an extensive 19-month application process with the National Forest Service. This permit allows them to introduce visitors to the Yosemite Southgate area’s hidden gems and unparalleled beauty.
“We are thrilled to have received a special use permit to offer guided mountain bike rides from the serene to the extreme in the Yosemite Southgate area!” exclaimed Michael Broderick, Co-founder and President of Pedal Forward Bikes & Adventure. ” Our rides range from easy, family friendly guided rides to a secret waterfall, to thrilling double black diamond mountain bike trails for expert mountain bikers.”
Pedal Forward Bikes & Adventure’s guided biking and hiking experiences showcase the wonders of the Sierra National Forest, revealing hidden treasures and scenic beauty to those who may have previously missed out. Their dedicated, experienced guides lead visitors on adventures that traverse stunning trails, offering a unique perspective on the area’s natural beauty and rich history.
“We have a fleet of high-quality, full suspension mountain bikes for customers who do not have a mountain bike when visiting the area,” Broderick continued. “Our full-suspension mountain bikes enable customers to ride the local trails safely.”
Jorge Negrete, Co-founder and Vice President of Pedal Forward Bikes & Adventure, expressed his excitement about the company’s guided tours.
“It has been a wonderful experience showing off the fantastic trails of the Sierra National Forest. It is incredible how many people visit Yosemite and don’t know about the beauty of the Sierra National Forest, where you can avoid other travelers to find secluded, awe-inspiring trails with creeks, peaks, and waterfalls.” Negrete continued, “Our guided rides are more than just a basic bike ride. All of the tours we offer are interpretive, where we explain all the details about the flora, fauna, and the area’s rich history. Our goal is to turn every moment of the tour into a lifelong memory.”
In addition to their mountain bike tours, Pedal Forward Bikes & Adventure also offers e-bike tours, catering to customers who may need extra assistance during their adventures in the Sierra National Forest.
Pedal Forward Bikes & Adventure’s commitment to providing phenomenal customer service has indeed paid off. Every review they have received since their summer bike tour launch has been a stellar five stars on platforms including Google and Yelp, and in 2023 the shop earned a Fresno Bee People’s Choice award for one of the “Best Bike Shops in Central California.”
The company’s remarkable success during its first season of guided biking and hiking experiences underscores its dedication to sharing the natural wonders of the Sierra National Forest with outdoor enthusiasts and visitors from near and far. As they head into the next season, Pedal Forward Bikes & Adventure looks forward to creating even more unforgettable moments for their customers, continuing to showcase the hidden treasures of Yosemite South Gate and the Sierra National Forest.
