National Bike Month celebrates the weekend trail riders, the daily commuters, the distance rollers, and lovers of all things bikes here in Central Iowa. Sponsored by the Street Collective of Greater Des Moines, Bike Month offers classic bike month events and rides--such as the PedalArt Show, Coolest Bike In Town, and City Rides--and new events for the whole family every May.

Make sure to follow the Des Moines Bicycle Collective Facebook page for a list of events and further updates!
