Fat tire biking in Glorieta Canyon
There are some areas of Anza-Borrego that have solid dirt roads that can be explored on typical mountain bikes but the majority of the roads and washes are very sandy or have sandy sections for typical mountain bike tires.

Fat tire bikes, with wide tires and low tire pressures, really expand the possibilities of places to explore by bike.  Braking systems are also engineered to provide for smoother and less skittish braking on sandy surfaces.  The fat tires also make the ride a little more cushioned, although, nothing being free in the world of physics, you will need to put more energy into the powering of the bike.  Expect fun, expect to see the desert in a unique way, and bring plenty of water for the good workout.
