Our Customers Love The Bike Station

“The Bike Station Is The Best!”
“The bikes here are always in great shape. We have rented and taken the shuttle to Whitetop 4 times now with The Bike Station. Call ahead for a reservation. Steve's staff is friendly and accommodating. They size you to the correct bike and give you a bottle of water for the ride down the Creeper Trail. I highly recommend this shop. Get there at least a half hour before your departure. Weekdays are less crowded than the weekends.”

“Great shuttle service and bike rental store!”
"We have been using the Bike Station for a couple of years now. They are always friendly and helpful. They are located a block or so off the Virginia Creeper trail in Damascus, VA.You can either ride out and back from there, or have them shuttle you to the top and ride down. We always bring our own bikes, but they offer rentals. They also have trailers and tag-a-longs for the little ones. We have used a couple other shuttle services, but I like the down-home feel of this one. They recently moved from their old location to a bigger space right next door. They are remodeling to offer more facilities for bikers. We will be back!”

The Virginia Creeper Trail

From it's beginning as a Native American foot trail to it's current use as a multiple use recreational trail, the Virginia Creeper Trail has seen many changes in 100+ years of existence. In the early 1900's, the trail was used as a rail line to haul lumber and passengers from Abingdon, VA to Elkland, NC (Now Todd, NC).

A one-way trip of over 35 miles that will find you passing over 100 trestles and bridges. The Virginia Creeper Trail provides 35 mile passage through southwest Virginia's mountains well suited for hiking, horseback riding and bicycling, as well as a convenient path to many great fishing locations. The Creeper Trail received its name for the methodical way the train moved up the gradual incline to the top of the mountain.
