Our bikes are from Cannondale and Kona. We have have a full range of mountain bikes, from 20" kids' bikes to 27.5 and 27+ and everything in between - all with front suspension. The bulk of our adult fleet is Kona's Cinder Cone, and the Cujo 2 from Cannondale. We also have some flat-bar hybrid bikes that are great for cruising on dirt roads (see our ridewithgps.com profile for some ideas), trailers and trail-a-bikes that attach to an adult bike.

Rules of the Trail
Share the Trail: Do your utmost to let your fellow trail users know you're coming — a friendly greeting or bell ring are good methods. Try to anticipate other trail users as you ride around corners. Bicyclists should yield to other non-motorized trail users, unless the trail is clearly signed for bike-only travel. Bicyclists traveling downhill should yield to ones headed uphill, unless the trail is clearly signed for one-way or downhill-only traffic. In general, strive to make each pass a safe and courteous one. The person you're passing may be the property owner; be respectful.
Cyclists: always wear a helmet and appropriate safety gear. Ride within your limits.
Leave No Trace: Be sensitive to the dirt beneath you. Wet and muddy trails are more vulnerable to damage than dry ones. Keep singletrack single. Pack out your trash and other trash you see.
Use only open trails: Respect trail and road closures — ask at the office or bike shop if you are uncertain about the status of a trail. Do not trespass on private land.
Trails are for non-motorized use only.
Dogs: In summer, we ask that dogs be on leash around our campus and buildings. In the woods and on trails, well-behaved dogs and their attentive owners are free to negotiate how best to proceed on their own.
Plan Ahead: Strive to be self-sufficient: keep your equipment in good repair and carry necessary supplies for changes in weather or other conditions.
