Photo yanked from Granny Gear Productions

Congratulations to team MonaVie/Cannondale, who won the Men's Veteran category at the 2007 24 Hours of Moab. Team member Kyle is also the owner/driver of Acme Shuttle. While Kyle was racing into the night (and then into the subsequent day) the Acme Bike Shuttle was still running — taking happy trail riders to the trailheads all weekend.

Another shining customer endorsement for Acme Shuttle reader "Macrider" gives these handy tips when visiting Moab, Utah:

Day 1: hire Acme Shuttle to get you to the top of Porcupine Rim — drop it back to town drive to the bottom of Poison Spider and climb it, drop down Portal trail - go to the Brewery (or Dusty Bottom's private club at the Pizza place if they'll let you in) and eat yourself silly.

Day 2: have Acme Shuttle meet you at the bottom of Amasa Back trail, shuttle you to the top (BRING MAPS & GPS, lots of water and some food!) ride to your car.

Of course, there are lots more trails than just those, and if you want all the dirt, give Acme a call: 435-260-2534 See you on the trails! thread and more stuff here

Acme Shuttle On The Road

Moab's awesomest mountain bike shuttle service, Acme Bike Shuttle, hit the road last weekend and sailed from the Moab desert into the birthplace of mountain biking, Marin County. Acme's owner/driver Kyle Mears is a phenomenal rider, and tossed a front brake rotor on his new bike to give the bike a test run on some singltrack. Marin's most technical singletrack was no match for Kyle. When asked about the ride after it was over, I distinctly recall him saying, "What rocky section?" in reference to a section walked by every other member in the group. At the bottom of a very technical descent, including three steep rocky sections that have most riders quaking in their SPD's, Kyle (waiting politely at the bottom) had a big grin to offer. "That was so fun!"

As winter downtime starts up in Moab, Kyle will be honing his skills and expanding his terrain expertise. When you plan your trip out to Moab in the spring, call Acme Shuttle 435-260-2534 to take you to the trailheads. If you're lucky (and nice!) Kyle might even do the ride with you.
