    Hi ADVriders! I recently sold all of my bikes and moved to the UK for a new job (don't worry, I'll buy new bikes when I return to the USA full time). I'm going to be back in Snohomish for 2 weeks starting Sunday and would love to get up to the Leavenworth/Cashmere area for some single track riding (there's none to be had in London). I looked for bike rental places on the web but couldn't find anything in the area so I was hoping some kind soul here would be willing to rent me their buddy bike for a day to go ride up near Cashmere with a couple of friends.

    Does anyone here have a spare bike I could rent for a day or 2? I'm 53 years old and an experienced single track rider, I can pay you rent for the day and put down a damage deposit. I'm looking for a 250 to 450 2t or 4t any make (beggars can't be choosy), anything that works well on single track.

    Or if you know of a place that rents, let me know. (all I could find for rent was Harleys and big adventure bikes, I'm looking for a dirt bike or dual sport like a 350exc or crf250r)


    Thanks!

    Mike from Snohomish

    Thanks for the responses!
    Unfortunately it doesn't look like Coyote rents bikes and their email doesn't work. I did text the # they have posted so we'll see if I get lucky there.
    Cascade backroad rents bikes for forest service roads, no good single track bikes unfortunately.

    Have you contacted Mitch at Cashmere Powersports? He might know someone willing to rent one. I used to live in the area, but don’t know of anyone who rents, or any buddies who have a spare or would rent one for a day.
    There are Green Lanes in the UK, but it looks lame compared to what we are used to here in the Pacific Northwest.
    There is a monthly section in Adventure Bike Rider magazine on the Green Lanes in the UK.
