We rented bikes for the day from here and were very pleased with the quality of the bikes, and the friendly advice about where to ride. Bikes were well maintained and felt very safe riding them. Would happily rent again from here

We rode on three different days and the service and bikes were always great. Lenore even jumped on her bike and came and pointed out a trailhead we had missed the day before. Will be back!
