The Oskaloosa Bicycle Coalition is an active group dedicated to making bicycling safer, easier, and even more enjoyable in our community. At the group’s last regular meeting, the idea of an off-road trail was visited. Off road cycling is quickly gaining in popularity; and attracts riders of all ages, since trails can vary in their level of difficulty. The coalition plans to get feedback from the community and look into the options for locating such a trail locally.

Valet bike parking at large community events such as Sweet Corn Serenade was suggested as a way of encouraging cyclists to leave the car at home. Valet bicycle parking works the same as valet parking for autos, with a claim ticket being issued to the bike owner when their bike is parked.

A bicycle rodeo is being planned for May 14th from 9:00am to noon in the MCG parking lot, designed for kids 5 to10 years of age. This event is a cooperative effort between the Oskaloosa Police Department, Kelli Steil State Farm Insurance and the Oskaloosa Bicycle Coalition.
