Trailside Rentals is a bicycle rental and overnight guest house business in Madrid, Iowa, only one block from the High Trestle Trail. Shop owners Dave Johnson and Becky Roorda opened Trailside Rentals in the summer of 2012 and added the Guest House in 2017. They love the trail and want to encourage others to experience it and the High Trestle Trail Bridge overlooking the Des Moines River. Dave is a long-time bike geek with an extensive bike collection (more below) that inspired the creation of Trailside Rentals. Becky is an occasional recreational cyclist and regular walker on the Trail. Come to Trailside Rentals! You will meet Dave, Becky or Trail Ambassador Bob.
