Mountain Bike Rentals We rent top quality, well maintained mountain bikes from Specialized. Our fleet includes just the right bike for you ... choose from 24-speed, front suspension, kids, and "comfort" styles. There are many trails to choose from. Family style rails-to-trails along The Lehigh Gorge to the technical single-track and descent of Twin Peaks. Shuttle Services Let us take the hard work out of biking.

Shuttles are provided to The Lehigh Gorge (15,25 or 35 miles) and The Switchback Trail (9 miles), which passes right by Mauch Chunk Lake. For your safety, our experienced shuttle drivers will give a bike clinic before you embark on your ride.

We had a wonderful experience as usual dealing with the staff here. The bikes were exceedingly comfortable and I had not been on a bike in over a year.

Great place to rent bikes or buy or getting gear for just about anything. The young lady was very helpful, (she needed help) doing three things at once. She made sure we were satisfied with the purchases we made and answered every question.
