Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of riding a bike and around here, there are a lot of folks who like to ride their bikes!
Are you looking to connect with other people in the area, go on group rides, and have some fun?! We welcome you to check out some of the cycling & tri clubs we have in our neck of the woods!
Founded in 1976, Bike Burlington is one of Iowa's oldest bike clubs. Leroy Bickel (founder of Bickel's, Inc.) & Kay Perry (cycling enthusiast) decided to start the club after taking their first RAGBRAI trip with other fellow riders in 1976. That was back when RAGBRAI patrons initially wore blue jeans and rode with heavy fenders and paperboy baskets...which by the end of the ride, fenders were left on the side of the road and blue jeans were cut into shorts! Leroy & Kay decided that having a bike club would be one of the best ways to embark on such travels in years to follow. Now 35+ years and counting, Bike Burlington continues to provide for wonderful opportunities for all cycling enthusiasts, from casual bike rides to sponsoring competitive races, including Burlington, IA's annual Snake Alley Criterium.
