We rent, repair, and sell bicycles and recumbent bikes and trikes. A full service shop with tools, parts, accessories. We are a family run business. We are also one of the only frame builders in East Tennessee, so you may get to actually see bikes being built from scratch when you come to our shop. Customer service is our highest priority. We carry electric bikes for use in getting up and down the hills in Cades Cove. We also are open early on Wednesdays so stop by to get your bike here because they often run out of bikes to rent in the Cove.

I walked in not knowing if I was going to get same-day service, but I did. I was the customer of the moment and the job was performed as I waited. The repair fee and new tube cost were very reasonable. The bike shop was convenient to our campground. I recommend their services and will return for more service as... More

The owner was super friendly and very helpful! I was touring through the area on my bicycle, my first tour, and needed a bottom bracket repair. He went way out of his way to help. Showed me some sites and gave me some great advice on bicycle touring. You should definitely check them out and try one of the trikes!

I had my bike repaired with a quick turn around time, the owners are very professional and extremely friendly! Anyone needing a repair, rental or purchase should consider their shop! I want to thank them again for everything they did for me.

Josh, You may not remember me but my family came by your shop last week with a stroller tire that was in need of repair. I just wanted to say thank you for taking time out of your day to make that repair. I realize you were just doing your job but to us you were a life saver. When... More

Rented bikes, rack, and trailer for trip around Cade's Cove. Shop was easy to find, helpful and quick with fair pricing on rentals. If you need an option for small kids, like we did, this is the way to go. Could not have been happier with our experience.

Stopped in during a stay in Townsend to rent bicycles. Able to hook us up with two bikes and a rack for the car. Easy. Quick. Great rates. Nice bikes. Convenient location a few miles from Townsend entrance to GSMNP. Met owner and son. Both were very helpful and friendly. They also sell and repair bikes. Try a recumbent!

We stopped in to rent a bike for me to ride during the weekend while my husband went fishing up in the park. I chose a comfortable women's cruiser and off I went! I haven't ridden a bike in ages, and had a blast! The owners are very friendly and we enjoyed the whole renting experience. I would recommend them... More

In this day and age it's really hard to find a company that genuinely cares, but Josh really does. What a great guy! We contacted him from FL before we came up to make sure he could cater to our family. We have a 5, 8, 11, and 62 year old, so our bike situation was special, to say the... More
