These folks set us up right with good bikes and the shuttle service had a nice pre recorded explanation of the history and sites to see. There's a great Brew Pub, Studio Brew in Bristol Virginia to go to afterwards and an affordable clean Comfort Inn in nearby Abingdon to round it out. Enjoy with these guys, you can't go... More

There is a lot of competition for bike shuttle and rental places in Damascus, and I have used a few. From now on I will use The Bike Station. We were running late to meet the shuttle for the company we had booked for, and when we called they made it clear that even though we had driven 3 hours... More

I can not begin to tell you how extremely Amazing our experience was at The Bike Station. I called the week before going to Damascus, and Steve was patient and friendly, answering all my questions. When my wife and I arrived at the store, everyone was kind and very helpful. They made us feel very welcome, and their bikes were... More

If you are thinking about taking a bike ride down the VA Creeper Trail...absolutely do it! The trail is wonderful. If you are thinking about using the Bike Station as your shuttle and bike rental service....DON'T! There are many other shuttle/rental providers in Damascus. All of which have got to be better than the Bike Station. Their bikes are horribly... More

Nice people. Nice facility. Driver was humorous on the curvy long ride up. The location has ample parking in back and is very close to where the trail passes through Damascus. Some bike shops we visited while there (souvenirs) had poor parking options. Would use again.

Have been shuttled to White Mountain many times and this was the most comfortable van ride. Driver was very informative and pointed out Lawrence Dye a local guy now in his 80's that has as of Sept'16 logged over 191,00 miles on the Creeper.

Steve and the gang were great as usual. Good bikes and friendly service. We use only The Bike Station when we ride the Creeper Trail. I also appreciate Steve's attitude toward military veterans, as my husband served in Vietnam. Thank you Steve.

Great company to rent bikes! Steve was wonderful to deal with! We had 4 of our own bikes and rented 4. "Hoodie" was so entertaining on the van ride up the mountain! Telling us interesting stories about the area! I would definitely recommend doing business with this company!
