★★★★★ “I just went here, and this is by far the best place I’ve biked. The blue jump trail they have here makes beginners like me feel like they know what they’re doing. The staff was super friendly, and I had conversations with them throughout the day. The woman working the rental shop was even nice enough to search the lodge for some rope to tie up my pants when my belt broke! If that’s not service, I don’t know what is. I will be coming here for the rest of my life.”
