It is not too late to register for Bike To Work Week 2015! If you plan to join in the fun by riding, walking, or using alternative non-single motorist transport to work, school, or on your daily errands, please sign up at the link below!
Friday night is our least formal night at the Coop. Anything goes if you would like to work on your own bike, that’s fine. If you would like to learn by working on a bike for the Coop, great. We rent the bench for a $10.00 donation per hour. We also will be happy to show you any of the bikes we have on the floor if you are in the market for a new ride. We are happy to just hang out and explain what we are all about. You need no experience to volunteer. Stop down to 2206 Central Ave. and see what we have to offer.
The Dubuque Bike Coop feels the connection between biking and art. We would like to invite artists in our community to visit our ART BOX! We have a lot of parts that have had to be retired from use on bikes, but are still interesting objects that we don’t want to see in the landfill. The materials in our art box are FREE to all artists. We only ask that you stop by and show us what you made or send us a photo!
We also show art on our walls, please visit the Call For Artists tab for more information.
Summer is here and there are a lot of bicycling activities to note! The Coop is busy keeping up with demand of checkout bikes. We are always on the lookout for quality bikes to put back out on the streets and/or trails of Dubuque! Looking to get involved in the community? Want to learn more about bike mechanics, advocacy or just want to get to know your neighbors? Come on down to the Coop! If you have some bikes collecting dust in the garage or would like to volunteer at the Coop, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by during one of our shop nights (Tuesday/Thursday/Friday from 6-8ish PM).
RAGBRAI is also around the corner… with the numerous organized rides, lots of folks enjoying a relaxing jaunt around town, more people commuting by bike to work or just a quick trip to pick up a carton of eggs at the Dubuque Food Co-op, there are a lot more bicycles sharing the road. If you are a bicyclist, please make sure that you are obeying all traffic laws and riding safe and staying visible. If you are driving a car, please slow down and give plenty of space. We all have a right to be on the roads and need to respect each other. Be kind and ride safe!
Last, but not least, remember that everything is better on a bike. Everything. Have a great summer!
