Mountain Biking

The Trailhead

Adventure Access mountain biking provides a whole new way to experience the eastern slopes of the Tibetan plateau. As the only biking outfitters in Songpan, Sichuan, we provide a unique way to see the surrounding countryside and local villages combined with quality rides. We use Trek bicycles for all of our clients. The standard bike provided on a tour is a Trek 3000 or 4000 series. The option to upgrade to a Trek Fuel EX5 or Trek Fuel EX7 is available at an additional price of 100 RMB. These are all dual suspension bikes and we have 29er options available as well.

Beginner to experienced riders are all welcome. Below are a few mountain bike options we offer.
