The Iowa Valley Bicycle Club (IVBC of Marshalltown) was formed in 1974 to promote recreational bicycling and bicycle safety. From the initial mission, IVBC has been active in programs such as the bike safety rodeo program and donating helmets to children. IVBC is a community-minded club. We donate to the Red Cross, Community Y Partner With Youth, Marshalltown Floral Baskets, Youth and Shelter Services of Marshall County, Cycling for YSS, Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation, Iowa Bicycle Coalition, Marshalltown Police Youth Helmet Program, Bikes2Share, Dairy Queen Bicycle Safety Award Program, Bike to Work Week, and work with the city working toward making Marshalltown "a bicycle friendly community". Through donations it has also aided in the development of the Marshalltown Bike Path and the Discovery America Trail.

BIKES2SHARE Program Information

Anyone interested in donating an adult bike to IVBC for our newBikes2Share program can contact Ken Lyons or Sherry Kubalsky (both in the phone book I believe). The program donates bikes to adults in the community who need them for transportation and who are unable to purchase their own bikes. So far, we've given away over 100 bikes! 

IVBC recently received a $1000 grant from the Community Foundation for our Bikes2Share program which donates used bikes to adults who need transportation. Receiving the award were Tony Etcher, president, and Sherry Kubalsky and Ken Lyons who spearhead the Bikes2Share project. If you have a bike to get rid of, and it's in decent condition (possibly only needing minor repairs) please consider contacting IVBC to contribute to this worthwhile project.
