Was on the trail this week with a friend and her daughter. I noticed that her daughter's seat was too low. I guess she grew a lot over the winter. We stopped into Betsy's Bikes and they raised her seat for us. No charge. Was...More

Homey bike rental store, very nice and helpful staff, comfy bikes, and a nice trail equals a great time biking. Rental costs are based on how long you want to spend biking, making prices and visits flexible and convenient. I will definitely be coming back,...More

A friend rented this bike and brought it to the trailhead. The tires had 10 pounds of air pressure (55-60 recommended) and the rubber hadgrips were about 1/4 of the way off the handlebar. The handlebar itself was loose and could easily be rotated in...More
