I have started running a shuttle bus named Masterlink Tours. It runs out of CT and caters to Mountain Bikers. The bus will be equipped with a TV, DVD player and Stereo for your entertainment. It sits 10 adults comfortably or up to 18 people if they are younger kids. The bikes and gear is carried in an enclosed trailer. I am willing to drive whenever or most anywhere to go ride as long as the seats are getting filled. I'm open for suggestions. I'm also willing to rent the bus and driver to do road trips.
As of right now, Highland Mountain Bike park ( http://highlandmountain.com/ ) is being very supportive about getting this thing up and going . They have offered $5 off lift passes for anyone who rides the bus. Hopefully when the word gets out, more people and businesses will jump on board as well.
I do the trip from Waterbury CT to Tilton NH and back for $25 per person. Includes one bike and one $5 off coupon for the lift. For those who want to bring a dirt jump bike as well it will run you an extra $5. I pick up at commuter lots along the way. The lots I use really depend on the convenience of the people going on that weekend.
I post a rough schedule and some information on Facebook. If you type Masterlink Tours in the search bar located in the upper right hand corner of the web page you will find me or follow this link http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/pa...8078924?ref=ts Become a "fan" to receive updates.
I'm also doing a mass Emailer for people who are not on Facebook or do not care to get involved with the whole Facebook thing. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org Send a short email requesting me to add you to my list and I will keep you in the loop.
( I will have a web page up soon but I'm still trying to figure out the best way to go about it. )
One date of interest maybe ....
This Saturday I will be taking the Shuttle up to Highland just for a day trip. They are holding a Slope Style contest. The lifts will be spinning for all the DH trails as well. Highland is super fun for ALL ABILITIES!! I stress all abilities because, yes there is allot of expert to pro terrain but there is also a fair amount of beginner trails to intermediate trails. Every obstacle has a go around that is clearly marked too.
The beginner trails are mellow with bermed corners and they flow very well. Last weekend my buddy and his girl came and rode. She rides a Cannondale Lefty and was able to make it down all the easy trails with ease. By the end of the day she was feeling so confident that she rode one of the intermediate trails. Plus they have a killer lodge with food and drinks for people who may want to kick back and have a few before the ride home. Remember you don't have to drive!! That part is taken care of.
The weekend of August 15th I'm taking the shuttle to the Kingdom Trails in East Burke VT. They are having their annual Brew fest plus there's a ton of XC trails and some DH runs that can be shuttled as well.
Any questions ??? Feel free to ask. Thanks for taking interest! See you on the trail.
