Starting Sunday, March 15th, the Des Moines Bicycle Collective community bike shop will close to the public. Our first priority is the health and safety of everyone in our community. You can purchase bikes by appointment for the duration of our closure. Find our inventory at our online shop. We're also offering free BCycle rides as long as we can. Go to any kiosk and you'll find a free ride option good for 60 minutes.
If you have bikes or parts to donate, thank you! Please hold on to these for now, while we work to adapt to these changing conditions. If you can offer support in this difficult time, monetary donations are greatly appreciated and help us maintain staff and services through the lean times.
We will communicate via our website, Facebook, and newsletter about our plans moving forward. If you have questions, comments, or suggestions, please reach out. Contact Executive Director Jeremy Lewis at Jeremy@dsmstreetcollective.org or Shop Manager Alex at Alex@dsmstreetcollective.org.
We are as committed as ever to ensure safe and accessible transportation options for everyone in our community.
Thank you for your support.
MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR
Since 2008, the Des Moines Bicycle Collective has worked to make our region healthier, stronger and vibrant by promoting biking as a means of transportation and recreation.
As the Des Moines Bicycle Collective begins its second decade, it’s in excellent position to revamp its identity to make an even greater impact. Transportation that works for everyone is its new priority.
With this new priority comes a new name – the Street Collective. The Street Collective envisions livable neighborhoods where everyone can walk, pedal, ride or roll comfortably to anywhere they need to travel while staying true to the Collective’s ethos.
We move forward collectively.
- Jeremy Lewis, Executive Director
