This will be the first of it’s kind for World of Bikes. We have lassoed our own Andrea Cohen, a Salsa Cycles rider, dirt-bag bike camper, and an actual educator of bike touring to lead our first bike camping clinic. There are plenty of places to explore to by bicycle just outside of Iowa City and we want you to come with. Maybe you have some camping stuff, hopefully you have a bike (we do have rentals here), but you must have an open mind and be ready for some adventure. This clinic will be in preparation for the World of Bikes Sub 24-Hour camping trip on August 13th to Lake MacBride wolf campsites.
Ladies! The long awaited flat tire clinics are back! This clinic is designed around a complete novice. You do not need to have any prior bike knowledge or experience to attend, just an open mind.
A bike is the perfect way to tackle your daily errands, and a good bicycle bag can make all the difference. Whether you’re headed to class, work, the store, or even a campsite off in the woods, World of Bikes has got a storage solution that’ll work for you and whatever gear you carry. In fact, we’ve got some brand-new Detours bags that flawlessly fuse utility with pizzazz – colorful panniers that convert to backpacks, handlebar bags with touchscreen phone pockets, and even classic little handlebar duffles.
Are you participating in RAGBRAI XLIV? Excellent! Our scientists are at a loss to explain this massive annual migration of cyclists across Iowa, so they’re counting on you to collect data first-hand. That means you’ll need your bike in tip-top shape, so bring it in for a tune-up now (no, seriously, like NOW), before our repair queue gets too long!
Do you have trouble finding a tire size that fits you just right? Maybe you’ve found your mountain bike a bit skinny for your needs, but a four-inch tire is just too fat. Well fret no more! World of Bikes is proud to carry a selection of bikes sporting plus-sized tires that’ll fit your riding style perfectly. With more tire comes more traction and stability, but who says you have to sacrifice playfulness to get it? These bikes are both nimble and ready to take on literally any terrain you can throw at them. Come on in and take a spin on the Advocate Hayduke (a trail-crushing steel-machine), the full-squish Salsa Ponyrustler, or the playful Trek Stache.
