Monday Night Gravel

After taking a year long hiatus, Monday Night Gravel makes a triumphant return. The no-drop ride leaves from the WoB parking lot at 6:15p. We close at 6p, so if you need any supplies, please plan ahead.

This year, we will be asking for people to sign up as ride leaders and ride sweepers.  The route will be provided on Sunday night via The Gravel Scouts social media pages and it will be your responsibility to have the route downloaded for the ride.  You can sign up here.

Rides will be 20-30 miles and will take 2-3 hrs including stops(about 4 per ride). Besides a bike and a decent attitude you should have a helmet, front and rear light, repair/tool kit, water and snacks.

We look forward to see all your dusty faces again this year!!

Store Updates

 
Strange Times, Same Awesome Service
 
MASKS REQUIRED FOR ENTRY IN TO THE STORE.
We require masks for everyone 2 years and above to enter the store.  This is a City of Iowa City mandate and a store policy.  We have masks available at the front door if you forget. Please make sure the mask is properly worn covering both your mouth and nose. 
 
If you’ve been by the shop recently you’ve experienced firsthand the lengths we’re going to so that we can continue to provide industry-leading sales and service to the greater Iowa City area.  We have installed temporary barriers, curb side pick up is just a phone call away, our team is masked, cleaned-up the shop (though still a bit greasy, it’s a bike shop) and ready to help you accomplish your two-wheeled goals.  
 
We are now allowing limited numbers of people in the store. If you do not wish to enter the store, we are able to offer fully comprehensive curbside shopping and service drop-off and pickup!  Heck, we’ll even let you pay over the phone and just huck your purchase in through the car window when you arrive (please remember to roll your window down to facilitate effective product hucking).
 
 
Bikes are arriving weekly, we’ve got brand new hybrids, kids bikes, road bikes, and adventure bikes, but they’re not going to last long – if you’re looking for new wheels for your next adventure, now’s the time!  Give us a call to check our stock or swing by and check-in in-person – our team may be masked up, but under there they almost definitely look happy to see you! 
 
The service department is still bustling, to put it mildly.  We continue to offer full service tune ups as well as on the spot service for flat tires, minor brake/shift tweaks and comfort adjustments.  If you got a new bike recently and are due for your free new bike inspection, you can still drop it off and expect a 24-48 hour turn around.
 
Current Hours:
M-F: 10 – 6
Sat: 10 – 4
Sun: Closed
 
Got any questions?  Give us a call at 319-351-8337, or email info@worldofbikes.com and we’ll get you squared away in no time.
 
Thanks for your understanding, and for supporting local businesses!!  Remember to keep your eyes forward and the rubber side down – we’ll see you soon.
