The Residence

The bike school residence started out both smaller and simpler. It now features 4 individual bedrooms, each with its own heating. Every bedroom has sheets, pillows and duvets as well as individual towels, plus a desk or table. 

There is a modern bathroom which was renovated in the spring of 2014, with a generous sized shower (a 2 person model) and a low-flush toilet. The kitchen contains dishes, pots, pans and appliances galore. There is a very large shared refrigerator and a butcher-block counter 8 feet long to do food prep on. 

The common area includes the dining area and a living room overlooking the south-facing deck through a glass patio door. The main entryway is covered to shelter you coming in during the rains.

Note: As this is a school environment, drugs and alcohol will not be used on the property.
