What is Pineapple Express?
Pineapple Express is a non-technical term for a meteorological phenomenon characterized by a strong and persistent flow of atmospheric moisture and associated with heavy precipitation from the waters adjacent to the Hawaiian Islands and extending to any location along the Pacific coast of North America. A Pineapple Express is an example of an atmospheric river, which is a more general term for such narrow corridors of enhanced water vapor transport at mid-latitudes around the world.
What is included in a guided trip?
Not only do you get the peace of mind of traveling in the backcountry or isolated beaches with a trained bicycle mechanic, but you are also guided by a local who knows, loves, and respects the Wild Rivers Coast.
Our guides are expert bikers and don't be surprised if you leave the trip with more skills than you came with. We enjoy sharing the love, passion, and stoke on two-wheels.
All our guided 1/2-day Adventure Trips include either morning coffee or afternoon ice cream (or beers, if that's your thing), a pre- and post- cycling specific yoga stretch by a certified yoga instructor, on-trail mechanic, and a laid-back adventure tailored to your skill level. There's no hurry on the coast.
Our full-day trips include the pre- and post- ride yoga stretch, on-trail mechanic, trail snacks, and sack lunch from a local deli. We aim to provide you with a genuinely local experience, therefore dinner or breakfast at the locals' favorite dive can be included in your full-day adventure*!
