The folks at REEB will set up the routes, load the truck and pack the cooler so you can focus on riding. Their mountain bike tours will show you the best the area has to offer, whether you’re looking for epic all-day rides or a family beginner holiday. Staying at the Ranch puts you at the doorstep of DuPont State Recreational Forest and a short ride away from the epic, world-renowned trails of Pisgah National Forest. The REEB mountain bike guides have more than 20 years experience on the trail. There’s also a fleet of hand-made REEB Dikyelous hardtails for rent. Riders can choose a 1×11 geared or a single-speed belt drive bike. Either way, throwing your leg over one of REEB’s hand-made trail slayers is a must for any mountain biking trip to the area.
