Q:  I want to get the whole family out riding, are there trails easy enough for my children to ride?

Q:  We want to make a trip out to Moab to go mountain biking for a day while we are in Telluride, are we able to rent bikes from you and bring them to Moab with us?

A:  Of course!  For bikes headed to the Moab trails the only thing we will require is the $20 damage waiver for each renter, in case of bike damage.  You are also able to rent a Yakima trailer hitch bike rack to haul the bikes to Moab for $30/day extra.


Q:  I recently purchased a new mountain bike that I want to bring to Telluride, am I able to ship it to Mountain Adventure Equipment to be built and ready to ride when I get to town?

A:  Definitely!  We have a professional service shop at our rental location where we can assemble your bike, and still be able to ship it back to you at the end of your vacation.

A:  Anything you need done to your bike, we’ve got you covered.  From builds and basic tunes to complex tunes and major repairs.  Stop in today and see what we can do for you and your ride!


Q:  When is payment due?

A:  A 20% deposit is due at the time of booking for all rentals.  Payment in full is then due at the time of equipment rental or delivery.  No security deposits are required for bike and paddle board rentals being paid with credit cards, but we do require a $1000 security deposit to a credit card for all vehicle rentals.
