I spent 2 days riding with Cashion and it was great. Cashion was extremely knowledgeable regarding the trails and found some very challenging ones for my abilities. I especially liked that he took the time to work with me through some spots where I had trouble to help me build skills. I would go back again!
The Bike Farm was great, I rode with Eva on 2 rides, 1 day at Pisgah and the other at Dupont. Both rides were great and the diversity between the two parks was awesome. Pisgah had long climbs up fireroads to fast, technical for me, downhill trails and felt like more of a rainforest. Dupont had shorter climbs and the downhills were more flowy and faster. Riding with a guide was a definite must as I would never have found any trails and these are not small parks, so getting lost could be a real problem. I needed to rent a bike and, I was surprised that they were able to supply me with 2 great bikes. They also suggested where to eat in Hendersonville which was great. I would definitely recommend the Bike Farm and if I am in the area again will use there services again.
So excited to have The Bike Farm in the community! They put together a super fun ride for my family (wide range in ages and experience) where we all had a blast, improved our skills and are eager for more. We have a cabin near DuPont Forest but I had always been too intimidated about the size and range trails to take the kids and spouse (who is not a cyclist). Cashion and Eva selected the perfect route, making sure we were all comfortable with the terrain but still challenged. Thanks to these guys there will be much more mountain biking in the future for this family!!
I had high expectations for my ride with Eva, and she exceeded all of them. Before the ride, she took the time to understand my riding style and preferences so she could take me on a ride that would be fun and also push me to my limits (which I wanted). She took the time to select the right mountain bike for me to demo and the right trail to help me get the most out of the day. She guided me through beautiful Pisgah trails and the ride was a good combination of tips/advice and just having an incredible ride through the forest. I didn’t feel like Eva was a formal guide but more like a “cool Mountain Biking expert” friend. She made me comfortable to try and fail and to try again until I got the hang of a more challenging section of the trail. She even stopped and took some pics of me to help me remember the incredible experience. It was really wonderful having a women’s perspective and coaching, it made me feel very comfortable. I can’t say enough good things about her and the experience.The icing on the cake was going to the river for a quick dip after a sweaty, muddy ride.
I’m an avid cross county guy who was looking for some challenging trails. Cashion, delivered a seasonal trail Bennett Gap. Great views and key lines on the sketchy stuff was pointed out when needed. The trail left me wanting more travel and tire than the 100mm and 2.3″that I had. My guide did not take off and stayed close enough on the downhill so I could see his lines. We then finished up on some trails close to the ranger station. The pace, length, and route were spot on and based on what I told Cashion. He is one great rider and knows the area well. It was a fun adventure with a great guy. I’m sold on bike farm.
