The people run a very nice operation. They're friendly, efficient, and reasonably priced. Their bikes appear to be relatively new and in good repair, and their shuttle service delivers you to the Virginia Creeper trailhead at White Top Station. There is excellent, secure parking right behind the building, and when you finish the trail, their facility is convenient and easy... More

We explored the VA Creeper for the first time and had a GREAT experience. Thank you Steve for the great bikes and shuttle service. What a beautiful ride and perfect afternoon getaway. We went late October when there was just a little chill in the air. Don't forget to stop at the Creeper Trail Cafe on the way down.

It was our first time to the Virginia Creeper Trail and we selected The Bike Station based upon Trip Advisor reviews and we were very pleased. One of our concerns before going was getting motion sickness on the shuttle ride to the top of the trail to begin our ride. We have had friends tell us this can be a... More

We've been riding the Creeper Trail for several years now and have always used The Bike Station. Steve and the staff are great! They provide excellent service! We've brought our friends here and recommend them to anyone we meet that wants to ride the Creeper Trail!

My husband and I just made our first visit to the Virginia Creeper Trail, and we chose The Bike Station to help us. I spoke with Steve when planning our trip, and he was most helpful. We brought our own bikes, so we needed a shuttle to Whitetop for the ride down and a shuttle back to our car after... More

This is a 17 mile downhill ride from Whitetop to Damascus along an old rail line. There were 8 of us (4 couples). 4 brought bikes and the rest rented them. The rentals were decent mountain bikes. The Bike Station provided them with the helmets and a bottle of water. For a nominal fee, the 4 with bikes got a... More

There are 8 bike shops in Damascus. I'm sure they are all fine, but you only need one. After reading TripAdvisor reviews, I opted for The Bike Station, and was well pleased. We went in the day before and the owner took time to let us size up a couple of bikes until we found what was just right. There... More

This being our first trip to the Creeper Trail we researched information on Trip Advisor. Without a doubt we made the correct decision by choosing The Bike Station. Lisa couldn't have been any friendlier or more helpful. Don who shuttled us to Whitetop was a wealth of knowledge about the trail and was so nice to share this information with... More
