The La Crescent Community Bike Shoppe accepts donated bikes, repairs and sells gently used bikes. We can even build you a custom bike! We are now located at 520 S. 14th St., the Community Arena, under the green awning. Follow us on Facebook at ‘The Bike Shoppe.’
The La Crescent Community Bike Shoppe was established in 2009 by Active Living La Crescent. With the help of the City of La Crescent, we aim to provide the community an opportunity to learn bike maintenance skills, recycle used bikes and increase the number of safe bikes on the streets . The La Crescent Community Bike Shoppe is located at the La Crescent Community Arena on S 11th St. It is a program of La Crescent Area Healthy Community Partnership, therefore all work and donations are tax deductible. The hours of operation are posted on our Facebook page, The Bike Shoppe. To learn more, contact Linda Larson at 608-790-2580.
