On Our Radar

We are still living in unprecedented times with no "normalcy" in sight. Even the "normal" cycling season didn't really even get off the ground this year and yet it is all but over for the masses. We hope you have remained in good health given all the chaos in the world this year and would like to express our sincere thanks for your support of BIKEIOWA through these times. We miss not being out and about with you all!

How about we just call it APPRECIATION WEEK ?!? From Thanksgiving Day through Dec 4th, we are offering 15% off anything in the BIKEIOWA Store (excluding gift cards and pogie lites). Yes, this includes items already on sale! Think about gifts for others during the holiday season, but don't forget about yourself either. You've earned some cool BIKEIOWA gear! SHOP HERE and use PROMO CODE: BUYBUY2020.

BYE BYE 2020 - HELLO 2021
We are looking forward to putting 2020 behind us and are already working on 2021 plans. Did you know that 2021 will be our 20th year in operation? YES!!! BIKEIOWA was here BEFORE Google, Gmail, Facebook, Instagram and all the other social media platforms, AND... We are still here!! Before 2001, your best source of cycling information was the bulletin board at the local bike shops or club newsletters mailed to you. Since then, BIKEIOWA has become the resource for all things cycling in Iowa. We've posted A LOT of information over the years. READ MORE

We now offer Gift Cards! These come in handy if you're not sure what to get the cyclist in your life. When you purchase a gift card, you'll receive an email that contains a unique gift card code that you can share with that gifted cyclist so they can use it at checkout to redeem its value. $10-$200 denominations are available. VIEW GIFT CARDS

THANK YOU for the support, using BIKEIOWA and telling others about it over the years. Look for more FUN promotions as we approach BIKEIOWA's 20th year in 2021!

Thanks for using
Ride Safe & Stay Healthy!
Scott Sumpter
