About Back Country Excursions
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We are an adventure destination for cycling enthusiasts that want to learn the sport of Mt biking, We also have trails for more experienced riders and all our Mt biking adventures are guided. We have some kayaks and an excellentwhite sand bottom swimming lake.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I was inspired to share this amazing natural place with adventurous people from the cities in order for them to be able to see the beauty and experience the solitude of nature up close in hopes that their experience here wouldhelp them make positive choices to preserve our Earths natural beauty.
What do you love most about your job?
I greatly enjoy sharing the joys and challenges of Mt biking and particularly like working with novices and seeing them progress rapidly. The skills that I teach are greatly appreciated and often even an experienced Mt biker learns much about the sport.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
One of my customers was a Firefighter in Boston and actually another in NYC well the Boston gentleman couldn't thank me enough for teaching him how to shift the gears on a Mt bike at the appropriate time and in the appropriate sequence. He was an experienced rider but always worked too hard climbing hills and really didn't like climbing but that all changed. I have 26 years stories! He gave me his fire shirt from his Fire Company
