About Us

Hello from Kim & Ron Scutt – Founders of Discovery Bikes

Dear Biking Friends, Kim and I are happy to welcome you to the Stehekin Valley, our home of four decades. Without a doubt, Stehekin provides an extraordinary, family, biking experience. We have offered our successful services for the past 35 years.

Now, as of October of 2020, Kim and I will no longer be operating our Discovery Bikes rental business, HOWEVER, we are delighted to pass the business on to lifelong friends, Brun Garfoot (Chief Financial Officer) and Reed Courtney (Chief Operations Officer) of Discover Lake Chelan. Raised in the Stehekin Valley, both Brun and Reed are uniquely qualified to continue serving valley visitors who want to experience the valley at a relaxed, self-determined pace.

We will miss continuing the relationships we’ve established with those who’ve been loyal customers over the past three decades. Some of our guests began their Discover Bike experience sitting in a Burley child carrier while a parent pedaled them through the valley. Many of these young people have returned to buckle their own children into Burley child carriers. Whether or not we knew our guests as friends returning to the valley or those visiting Stehekin for the first time, we enjoyed meeting people from across the United States and around the world.

Kim and I will be working with Brun, Reed, and Discover Lake Chelan to make the Discovery Bike transition as seamless as possible for those riding bikes while visiting Stehekin. Finally, we want to thank those who’ve supported Discovery Bikes throughout the years. The relationships we’ve built with guests are treasured.

Wishing you all the best,

Ron & Kim Scutt
