When I saw this deal on the Clymb.com, it was too good to pass up! I purchased the Float and Ride package, which includes 3 nights of accommodations camping, in the yurt, or in the lodge, breakfast, and a couple of lunches. When I think about a "lodge," I think about a building, rustic or not, with small private rooms... More

Went with a friend for a day ride. My friend is newer to mountain biking and I have been riding for a few years. Cliff, Tyler, and Lynn were excellent hosts. We rode parts of the thirty miles of very thoughtfully designed single track in the morning for about 2 to 2 1/2hours. Lots of good ups, downs, just the... More

This experience is not a leisurely ride in the country. Cliff is passionate about mountain biking and his organic, energy-efficient, sustainable life style. Cliff wants novices, like me, to appreciate the sport and enjoy the total experience of the weekend. He is attuned to your ability, but expects you to want to get better at mountain biking so you can... More

This was a remarkable experience!! Cliff is the owner of Back Country Excursions. I signed up for the 3 day weekend package, arriving Thursday evening and staying through Sunday late morning. We had about 10 riders in our group whose riding skills varied from quite good to inexperienced. Cliff (and Tyler, the junior guide) assigned each person a mountain bike... More

My buddy and I found the trip on theClymb.com. We had no idea what to expect and in no way are we experts at mountain biking. We arrived and were greeted by a friend staff (who ended up being our tour guides). The accommodations are shared but we had our own sleeping area. We were fed 3 great meals a... More

I've just returned from three days mountain biking with Cliff of BackCountry Excursions in Parsonsfield, Maine. Cliff has designed and built over 26 miles of trails outside his front door. There are trails for all levels and Cliff tailors the tour based on fitness, experience and ability of the rider. There are sweeping trails for the speed freaks, see-saws for... More
