Stop in during our stay in Damascus. Shop was buzzing with people renting bikes for the Creeper Trail. Staff was friendly and didn't mind hikers browsing around!

They were recommended to us and I am glad they did. The drive up gave us plenty of great information. They were very helpful with the kids bikes making sure they all fit their size and skill. Great selection.

The folks here were very helpful and took their time making sure we had everything needed for the grandkids and even the family dog. The driver was very knowledgeable of the area and shared lots of facts.

This is a family working hard to hold the town together. Shuttles, bikes replaced on schedule, you will not ride a piece of junk down the the mountain. And the shopping and t-shirts are great.
