Trek Travel Guest

We had a wonderful experience on our Vermont Trek Travel Adventure. The attention to detail was impressive. The e-bike option was a fantastic decision for us. We ride, but we are not avid riders. The assistance from the e-bike made our time less stressful and more doable. We are already planning next year and the year after.
