The Des Moines Street Collective is hoping to expand electric assist bike rental stations to the west suburbs, including Windsor Heights. You'll find these stations currently at several locations in Des Moines.
The City of Clive is planning on installing BCycle stations at two locations along the Walnut Creek / Clive Greenbelt Trail and there is also a possible location in Water Works Park in Des Moines. The Collective is looking to install a BCycle station in Windsor Heights at Colby Park directly north of the butterfly gardens.
At the 12/7 City Council meeting, Council members will hear the Street Collective's proposal to install a 10 dock BCycle station in Colby Park that will be outfitted with electric assist bicycles and classic bikes. These BCycles will be available for the public to rent to use for recreational or transportation purposes.
If approved by the Council, the BCycle stations will be funded by a mix of rental fees, advertisements, and annual support from the City.
