  • Incline Village to Spooner Lake for the Flume Trail Shuttle: 
    Flume Trail Shuttle – 10:30 only week days (additional Incline Flume Trail shuttles on the half hours mid week). 8:30, 9:30, 10:30, 11:30 Flume Trail Shuttles weekends 
     (additional shuttle at 12:30 for two or more).  Then at 2:00 and 4:00 for two or more.  Two rider minimum for afternoon shuttles. If a scheduled shuttle on the half hour fills, we send another shuttle in half an hour. Shuttles are set up like a city bus – hourly. If a scheduled shuttle fills, we send another in half an hour. We pretty much run continuously on busy days. You don’t need a reservation. You will get a ride. You won’t wait long. This works well and allows for the inevitable delays getting to our shop for a specific shuttle.
  • Last shuttle 4:00 for two or more with your own bikes or to return to your car at Spooner.
  • $2 entrance fee is included for entry into the State Park. Shuttles are free with the price of renting a bike.

Shuttle is included with your bike rental. Arrive at least half an hour before the shuttle you want to take. If a scheduled shuttle fills, we send another in half an hour. You will get a ride and won’t wait long. This non reservation system works very well and easily accommodates last minute vacation schedule changes or  our sometimes un predictable traffic slow downs.
