We rented bikes online with Glacier Outfitters a few months in advance of our trip with the hope of riding GTTSR before the road actually opened. The morning we arrived the bikes and car rack were ready to go with our names. The staff installed and loaded everything up and made sure we understood how everything worked and had us test the bikes to make sure we were comfortable. They also gave us advice on when/where to ride and the best spots to reach for the views. We ended up timing it just right to be able to ride all the way to Logan Pass and back in time before the end of the rental period. Cannot say enough about the professionalism of the staff and the knowledge of the riding area to help make our trip a great success.

We rented bikes for the going-to-the-sun road and had a great time. The staff was knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend renting gear from them.

Visited June 8-11 and planes to bike up on Sunday. Our luck it got cold, 50’s and rainy. The sun was peaking its head out and we talked to the owner and said we really wanted to bike going to the sun road. She was awesome , wanted to make sure we were prepared and safe, didn’t just want to take our money. We monitored the weather together and later in the day the sky cooperated with us and we biked up a little past the loop and it was awesome. The sky cleared up and the views were great. Would have loved to go farther to triple arches or Logan pass but we started late and it started snowing on us. The ride up was hard work but totally worth it!

Thanks for the kind works Klark and glad you were able to see one of the most beautiful places in the park in what we think is the best way to see it- by bike! -Shelby @ GO

We rented bikes from them they were helpful and made sure you got the right bike for what you want to. Loved the fact they let you return the bikes after hours so you do not feel pressure to be back by a certain time

We hired hybrid bikes and rode to Avalanche from Lake McDonald Lodge. So much better than walking. We got a bike rack to fit our car too. Very friendly and helpful folks.
