Iowa City-Coralville Bicycle Commuter Guide with map of trails, parking, bike lockers & safety tips


The Iowa City area is fortunate to have numerous fine bicycle shops.

All local area bike shops (except Scheels) offer members a 10% discount on specific items when you present your current Bicyclists of Iowa City Membership Card. Scheels supports bicycling events, in general, in the area.

Remember, shops are doing this as a service to members. You support bicycling in Iowa City, Coralville and Johnson County Iowa when you purchase bicycles and cycling needs locally.  (Page updated January 2016)
