Pocono Bike Rental had a soft opening this weekend in the historic town of White Haven, PA
We settled in nicely to our permanent location in the Poconos at; 322 Main Street, White Haven, PA 18661 on the corner of PA State Route 940 right next door to Extreme Adventure Travel, a Whitewater Rafting and Kayak Shop. After a soft opening on a sunny spring weekend, at their newly occupied space, the welcome addition to this beautiful mountain town will surely be a big hit among the mountain biking enthusiasts in the Northeast PA Poconos region and beyond.
This new professional bike shop will rent bikes, provide shuttles and some minor service repairs to the general public. We will also be carrying a line of healthy beverages, energy drinks, fresh fruit and snacks like granola and energy bars. The shop is housed an a beautiful traditional red brick building that anchors this busy main thoroughfare. The hours of operation for Spring 2015 will be M-F 10-4, Saturday and Sunday 8-6.
Tom Williams the owner states; “It’s great to be here in this great piece of American History and wonder. White Haven is such a wonderful quaint town in the heart of the Poconos. This unsuspecting town is located at the very beginning of the World Famous Lehigh Gorge Rail Trail and Whitewater Rafting system. It’s what sets this town apart is it’s proximity to the best place to bike, hike, whitewater raft and kayak in the Northeast US Corridor.”(NY, CT, MA, NJ, MD, DC)
