Iowa City Bike Library announces limited hours before winter break.

Effective immediately, the Iowa City Bike Library will offer limited retail hours on Saturdays from 10am to 1pm through December 20, after which we will close for winter break. Patrons looking to check in bikes can do so during Saturday hours, or by appointment through e-mail.

Bike Checkout
Bikes are available for checkout on Saturdays from 10am to 1pm.

In the spring and summer months the queue can begin quite early and our supply of bikes is limited--arrive early!

Rental bench is free for Environmental Advocates, Bicyclists of Iowa City, or Bike Library volunteers.
