Gray's Lake Park Bicycle Rental Program
About Bike Rentals

This program encourages renters to enjoy the expansive Greater Des Moines Trail System; a Central Iowa Trails Map is provided at the concession stand free of charge with or without a rental.

Bikes are rented on a first-come, first-served basis and equipment of various sizes and styles are subject to availability. Advance reservations for specialty bicycles (i.e. tandem, recumbent, trail bike or bicycle child trailer) or equipment of a specific size can be made with the use of a credit card by calling the concession stand at least 48 hours in advance at 242-2855.
Des Moines Parks and Recreation has entered into an agreement with Bike World to provide and repair bicycles and equipment for this program.

Bikes may only be rented or reserved during concession stand dates of operation (approx. May 1 - Labor Day)
