Greetings from our nation's capitol- While visiting the website of the DC bike library, dubbed Chain Reaction, I came across this map listing the bicycle collectives across America. Iowa City appears to be the lone fort in our push for the Midwest.
The Bike Library is a volunteer-run community bike project located in Iowa City, IA. We repair donated bikes and check them out to the public. Bikes are priced with a deposit (ranging from $30-$100). If a bike is returned in good condition within the six-month checkout period, the full amount of the deposit will be returned to the user. Alternately, patrons can choose to keep their bikes and forfeit their deposit.
