Bicycool Riding Events

Modeled after the Bicycool program in Poland, Iowa Falls is the third in the nation to host a similar library/community biking event! 

Meet at either the Barlow Memorial Library or the Alden Public Library for a community bike ride, an I Got Caught Ticket, and free library giveaways.  (Remember to wear your helmet!)


Saturday, May 18th, 2 p.m.
Saturday, May 25th, 10 a.m.

The I Got Caught program is an incentive program to get Iowa Falls students riding their bicycles to stay active and to be safe by wearing a helmet. Over 300 helmets have been distributed to Rock Run Elementary and Riverbend Middle School students during the three year history of the program by the Hardin County Trails Committee.

Throughout the month of May volunteers from the Trails Committee, Iowa Falls school personnel, and the Iowa Falls Police Department will be ticketing children. Students of any age "caught" wearing a helmet while riding will receive a ticket for a free ice cream cone from the local Princess Cafe.  Riverbend Middle School and Rock Run Elementary students will be eligible to enter the grand prize giveaway.

The grand prize giveaway will take place at Rock Run Elementary and Riverbend Middle School on the last day of school. At each school ticketed students will have a chance at winning a new Trek bicycle from the local Spoken Wheel Cylery, as well as free season swimming passes to the Meyer Municipal Aquatic Center, a swimming pool party at the AmericInn, and a membership to the Dale Howard Family Activity Center.
