Mountain biking is a way to get away and enjoy spring break and still have money to spend when it's over. Not only is it a great workout when you're pushing up the hills at Mount Lemmon, but you will feel as free as a bird while sailing down the other side.

Southern Arizona Offroad Adventures is offering their first annual Spring Break Mountain Bike Fest of 1995. They will guide people on a five-day tour of the rocky terrain of Tucson.

The owners and tour guides, Robert Reed and Chris Guibert, will be guiding people of all ages and they offer rides for beginner, intermediate and advanced mountain bikers.

The tour will run Monday through Friday of spring break, and you need just comfortable clothes and a sleeping bag.

All equipment will be provided, including a bike, helmet, gloves and camping gear. Energy-boosting meals are included.

No serious biking experience is necessary , but it is recommended that people who are interested in going be in good shape.

The tour covers approximately 10 to 20 miles per day depending on the level of the riders and the difficulty of the ride.

The cost of the spring break tour will be approximately $400. Student discounts are available.
