What You'll Get
Lewis and Clark were both hobbled during their great expedition—Clark, from resentment at his second billing, and Lewis, from a Lego slipped into his hiking boot by Clark. Enjoy noncompetitive nature excursions with today's Groupon: for $7, you get a one-way bike shuttle service from Flattop Mountain Shuttle (a $15 value). Purchasers may bring their own bike or opt to rent a bicycle for an additional $20 from Downtown Bicycle Rental, the point of shuttle check-in and departure. Bike rental includes a lock, helmet, map, and repair kit.
Flattop Mountain Shuttle allows freewheeling bike-riders to leave their vehicles at the mountain’s base for a day of seamless, scenic downhill cycling. Shuttle service sidesteps the onerous aspects of mountain biking by depositing cyclists at the Glen Alps trailhead, bypassing the need to search for a parking space at the mountaintop, plead with friends for a lift back up, or painfully pedal uphill to the car and drive home with the legs of a jellyfish. At an elevation of 2,200 feet, riders of all experience levels can find a downhill route to suit them, from rough and adrenaline-rousing to serenely scenic. All three trails boast glorious views, including emerald vegetation, crystal-clear creeks, the colorful alpine wildflowers, and glimpses of grazing moose or former unicycling circus bears watching with envy as cyclists fly by.
