Friendly and helpful service.

Bikes are kept in excellent condition. We were given full information on the Virginia Creeper Trail so there were no surprises. Very friendly folk and terrific shuttle driver. We were told the shuttle ride can be alarming but our driver was so careful that we enjoyed the scenery. I'll use The Bike Station again when I return in the fall.

Glad we chose the Bike Station for our rentals
Oct 2020
Planned this trip only 5 days in advance and could not get a bike for Sat or Sun so we chose to extend our trip to Monday and rented a bike through the Bike Station. What a great choice! First of all, I am glad we rode on Monday when the trail was not as crowded as the weekend. Secondly, the Bike Station took care of us and went above and beyond the basics. No need to explain the details, just ask for what you need and even though they are busy, they try to accommodate. Our shuttle driver gave us a few pointers for a more pleasant bike ride, cautioned us to be careful on some of the road crossings and overall, took care of us.
Especially glad we went during the fall. The leaves were turning for variations of color. The fall light through the trees was lovely. The trail ran alongside the river and crossed multiple times over wooden bridges, giving us different scenery at each crossing. Easy to stop anywhere and take your time, walk or sit on rocks, soak in the beautiful nature. Yep, good trip!

Great time on the creeper trail! Bikes were good, well maintained. Staff was super nice and followed all the covid rules so we felt comfortable. Creeper trail is amazing!!! You have to do it. -7 miles down hill in shade, with rolling water beside you. So fun!

My friends and I always go to The Bike Station when we are planning a bicycle ride on the New River Trail. Steve and his staff are the greatest and efficient in getting us and our bikes to our destination to begin our ride.

These guys were so friendly when we called to reserve our bikes and let us know exactly how to get there . They were great at fitting the bikes and going over thoroughly the trail . They even give u a bottle of water to take with you . The shuttle up is a little curvy but our driver was great !

Wonderful experience with knowledgeable, friendly staff. In addition to great service, they recommended several restaurants in the area and gave us information on the location of the Alvarado Station so we could ride a different portion of the trail.
