“Great service...best prices to rent bikes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

Most people rent bikes in Vail Village or Lionshead Village. The prices are way more expensive if you rent in the village. However, the scenery is way nicer around Vail. We rented from Avon because we were a family of 6 and it only cost us 50 dollars to ride around Avon for 2 hours. We had 2 adult bikes, 2 kids bikes, a tagalong and a little trailer for our toddler. It would've cost way more in Vail.

As a family, we rented in Avon and took the bike path to Edwards. They say the path is fairly flat and you would probably agree but on the way back it was a strenuous ride. Probably more so because my wife and i were hauling kids on the back of our bikes. If it was just two adults riding from Avon to Edwards, it would have been a easy ride.

The people at Venture Sports had great customer service. answered all our questions and got us riding quickly.

After the family ride, i (dad) paid 40 dollars and they took me to the top of Vail Pass so that i could bike down. The ride down Vail pass is fantastic. it's a must do for anyone whol likes to rides bikes for pleasure and the scenery can't be beat.

“Best price we could find.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

If you want to rent a bike while there, this place had the best price. Bikes were average and will work for most people. Bike rental in this area is just as expensive as a car (if not more) keep this in mind when planning your trip.

People were easy going and kind.

“Customer Service is the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2012

Whether you want to rent a bike (or skis in the winter) or buy a bike, this is the place to go! Venture Sports customer service is top notch! I have been in there 3 times in the last 2 weeks and everyone is so helpful. You won't be disappointed if you buy a bike there either. Their choices are vast. Also, it's the best tune in the valley and after 25 years of living here and owning a road bike and a mtn bike, I have a great deal of experience getting tune ups!

“Great Service for Ski/Snowboard rental in Vail!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2012

We had a quick weekend ski trip to Vail and Venture Sports had us out on the slopes as fast as humanly possible. They were there to fit our skis and boards, courteous, accommodating and the service at Base camp where we left our skis at night was top notch. The equipment was good. There were ZERO issues to deal with. Great job Cary and the Venture ski staff!
