A note to parents: these routes are planned with adults in mind. Although we'll be riding trails through town, we will also be riding on the street, and getting out into the county with larger vehicles. The routes are high mileage and we don't recommend this as a first long ride for kiddos.

The Bike Library's mission is to get more people in Johnson County biking. If you love what the Bike Library does, please consider making a scholarship donation in addition to your ticket so we can offer Farm Cycle scholarships and continue to fulfill our mission of getting more people in Johnson County on bicycles.

What you get: A full day of signed bike routes-there are 3 to choose from, breakfast, lunch stops, farm tours, water, and beverages, plus a post-ride-fiesta at Big Grove Brewery. Bike out to the farms, meet your local farmers and take a tour, eat and drink delicious local food and craft beverages. Student ticket prices and kids 12 and under are free.

Your charitable contribution less the fair market value of $35-$50 per ticket may be tax-deductible as allowed by law. Bike Library Inc is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. This celebration aims to contribute momentum to the community bike culture and the local food movement. Thank you for your support and for helping us in our mission to get more people in Johnson County on bicycles.
