The start of spring can forecast of more riders coming into Waterloo Bicycle Works to bring their bikes up to snuff.

The warmer months at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic brought a bike boom for the bicycle industry, but left a void for parts and supplies.

Now in 2021, Waterloo Bicycle Works say they're prepared for this year's RAGBRAI.

"It's that time of year people are bringing in their bikes for tune ups or any repairs they need, or just parts," Co-Owner Jessica Young said.

"The uptick in business this time of year is normal, you get some nice weather and everyone wants to get out there and ride," Co-Owner Gregory Young said.

The shop saw a bike boom at the start of the pandemic, as riders new and old wanted to get back on the pedals. Co-Owner Gregory Young, says a bike boom might not happen in 2021 due to lack of supply.

"We're not even going to have the kind of inventory we had last year, because bike companies are allocating bicycles to the dealers and we're not getting everything we asked for," Gregory said.
