Heather Parris

Founder of Self Propelled Tours and Cycling Advocate

“Cycling is my passion! I started cycling during a long winter in VT on an antique stationary bike. When spring rolled around my son Jeff asked why I didn’t buy a bike and enjoy riding outdoors. Long story short, I bought a bike, started riding the roads and got hooked.


After moving to the Sedona area with my husband 6 years ago I have been able to enjoy riding outside all year long. I have fallen in love with our beautiful Red Rocks and find cycling one of the very best ways to enjoy them.


Let me share my passion for the Red Rocks and cycling with you. Join me for a leisurely ride. Stop and take as many pictures as you want. Learn about the geology, and history of this magical place we call home. Enjoy the fresh air and sunshine while propelling yourself through Red Rock Country!”


The Company

Our service begins long before your tour departs.

At Self Propelled Tours we aim to give you an experience of Sedona you’ll remember for a lifetime. While hiking is a great way to experience Red Rock Country, cycling allows visitors to see more and go farther in the same timeframe. We arrange for bike and safety gear rental, water and snacks on your ride and a unique local perspective of our beautiful city . We can recommend hotels and restaurants in the area as well as suggestions on other fun things to do while you’re here.
