Rented a mountain bike to do the Dun trail in Nelson. New to biking, very knowledgeable staff. Bikes have a veclro map which is very helpful. They have many road bike tour options too.

Only reason I “only” give them four stars is because of the price which I think it a little high. We rented three bikes for one day and biked to Richmond.

Good operation, and professional. We were well outfitted and prepared for our ride. We were also picked up earlier than we originally intended, without problem.
