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.

Traveling through Damascus a couple of days before Christmas, weather was decent, so on a whim we decided to try a ride from White Top Station back to Damascus. I'm a cycling enthusiast, typically ride 5000+ miles a year on road, gravel, and trails so I'd notice if equipment or information was inadequate. Anyhow, I had my own bike. Wife... More

I think we did the Virginia Creeper trail on THE busiest weekend of the year! I had tried to reserve a bike a full week before going and everyone in town was booked! These guys were the only outfitter in town that was courteous and really tried to help us out. We kept on calling to see if there were... More

Sundog is one of the few outfitters open in November. Had a great van ride up the mountain with knowledgeable and friendly staff. Bought a nice tee shirt at the end of the trip

Friendly staff and well maintained equipment make this an excellent stop for you Virginia Creeper excursion. They set the bike up for your height and make sure it is in good operating condition. I would highly recommend them for your trail needs.

A group of three of us (me, my partner and her sister-in-law) did a bike rental and shuttle package this past weekend for the Virginia Creeper Trail. Cost was $27 per person, which seems very reasonable. They have a couple of different bike options, and the staff helped make sure our bikes were fitted properly. The process went smoothly despite...
