I just spent the best weekend ever at the Mountain Bike & Microbrew Festival at Back Country Excursions. I love bikes, beer, and the outdoors, so this was perfect for me. Of course, anyone expecting a luxury resort would be sorely disappointed, but I would say mountain biking is not for those with delicate constitutions anyway. After this trip I look like I was brutally beaten by very short people: nothing but scrapes and bruises from the hips down. I bike around the city a lot but I've never tried single track before this trip, and now I may be hooked. Cliff was really great at laying out the basics for us before getting started, and the rides were divided up by skill level and speed. The guides were different degrees of awesome (Kevin was my favorite). The food was awesome and plentiful, as was the beer. Everyone (guests and staff alike) had a great attitude, and I had a great time. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a fun little adventure. My only regret is that I didn't get to see a moose. — Kate M.
