This past December, we started Support Your Local Bike Shop Week and toured 80+ local bike shops across Iowa

The 2023 Iowa Bike Shop Tour documentary is here!

Come along for the ride!
We could not have done it without the support of volunteers like Scott and Wade with and Captain Roy's as well as coalition board members like Von Ketelsen.

Thank you to Wayne's Ski and Cycle Trek Bicycle and Mason City Community School District John Adams Middle School for showing what is possible when bike shops, schools, and cities come together to build community.

Thank you to cycling community champions like RAGBRAI who helped make this tour happen with their support.
Thank you to University of Iowa School of Public Health.
Special credit to The Nadas for letting us use their music.

Continue the ride at the Iowa Bike Expo and RAGBRAI Route Announcement Party for the Iowa Bicycle Coalition's 20th anniversary this year!


Although a very hectic week and 2500 miles of travel, the end result was WELL WORTH IT!

This video is really just a small sample of the shops, owners, employees, advocates and life-cyclists we talked to over the week.

SURE, we would we have liked to stayed longer at each stop, but time was a ticking and we needed to press on.

There are SO MANY cool bike shops around our great state. PLEASE support your Local Bike Shop. Stop in, get to know folks and BUY something.

We are already looking forward to next year!


WANT more ROAD TRIP information? We did a "BIKEIOWA Road Trip" in 2014 and featured many bike shops, businesses and trails in this 5-part series.

More Interviews - BIKEIOWA interviewed several shop owners and will be posting those videos in the weeks to come.
