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.

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.

We are doing the bike ride from White Top down to Damascus, starting around 11:30. We will have our 4 kids with us (ages 5, 5, 8 and 10). We would like to eat at some place along the trail, but I can't tell from the maps how long it will take to get to the Creeper Trail Cafe. Any suggestions? Should we just plan on taking a picnic lunch? Thanks!
