About Skunk River Cycles

Skunk River Cycles

Skunk River Cycles, located in downtown Ames, Iowa, is a bicycle shop that is a destination for all types of riders. We provide service on any make, model or year of bicycle, and are a dealer of Cannondale, Marin, Raleigh, Lapierre, Surly, GT and Schwinn bicycles. If you're not looking to buy a bike, we have a wide array of accessories and apparel to help you outfit yourself and your rig for any type of riding in any type of weather.

We cater to the needs of all types of riders, from those looking to simply get out and enjoy the fresh air on a comfortable bike to the daily commuter to the dedicated racer. If you already ride a bike, we can help you to enjoy it more or get to the podium in your next race. If you don't, we can help you find the ride that will put a smile on your face and get you to the store and back.

We carry accessories and apparel from such quality brands as Cannondale, Sugoi, Topeak, Planet Bike, Finish Line, and others. If you need something to improve your cycling experience, we can help. If you just want some advice on local rides and events, we are here to provide that information, too.

Our sales and expertise are not limited to bikes, however; we also rent, sell, and repair cross-country skis. If you retreat indoors from the harsh Iowa winter, but still want to stay in shape, we carry fitness equipment from Schwinn and trainers from Kinetic, CycleOps, and Blackburn.
