Reviewed 18 August 2014

Thanks to Lisa & Bob, we had a great experience with TBS! Due to lack of phone service, we weren't able cancel our original reservation or rebook. When we showed up unannounced 2 days later, we had no hassle - rented 3 bikes and enjoyed our ride on the Virginia Creeper Trail. Great service!

“Great service; nice employees”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

The Virginia Creeper Trail has been on my bucket list for years. Yesterday I finally got to experience the physical and emotional delight of riding a bike down 17 miles of trail. I rented from this outfit. They gave me a great bike and made sure it fit me well. $24 for bike rental, helmet, and ride to the top of the mountain. The folks were pleasant and professional. I asked the man (owner?) if they had a frequent renter card. They do not. They should jump on that and become the first outfitter in town to print one up...When I return, I plan on renting from them again.

“Very helpful & the only place we use now”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

My husband and I ride the Creeper Trail regularly. We have our own bikes, but Steve always lets us park at his shop. We initially started in Damascus and rode up hill to White Top Station, with the intent to ride all of the way to Abingdon. The Bike Station was going to pick us up. After going through a hail storm, we ended up to get our car. Steve Mann didn't charge us to park there, told us we could park there anytime. We used the restroom to clean up, bought a couple of t-shirts and when we bring a group back in a month, we will rent from them! Awesome people!!

I started off by comparing the shuttle services in Damascus, Va and called these fine people. The lady that answered the phone was very informative, not just about their services but about the Va Creeper Trail, Damascus and eateries. They shuttled 5 of us, we had our own bikes, to Whitetop Mountain and even dropped up off at the campgrounds that's at the top of the mountain. Very reasonable prices, very nice people. I plan on using this shuttle service when I come back to do the upper Creeper Trail!

“Good Outfitter for the VA Creeper”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

I took a trip to Damascus with a group to ride the Virginia Creeper. We rented our bicycles from bike station they shuttled us to white top gave instructions and took care of us. Our trip was filled with breathtaking scenery, lot of places to stop by and smell the roses. We had a great day trip and I would recommend Bike Station for bike rentals.
