  • Employee Profile: Dave Hammer

    Dave Hammer is Kyle's Bikes Waukee Store Team LeaderWith the Kyle's Bikes expansion into Waukee, it is time to introduce everyone to Dave Hammer.

    Dave has been unofficially working at Kyle's Bikes since the Ankeny store opened ten years ago. Kyle asked him—along with his wife and tandem stoker, Cindy—to be the leader of the Kyle's Bikes Wednesday Night Ride. They said yes and have been leading the ride since then.

    Officially, he has been an employee since the Monday after the 2018 Kyle's Bikes Parking Lot Sale. That's when he began working day-to-day in the store and preparing for the opening of the Waukee location where he will be Waukee Store Team Leader.

  • Employee Profile: Jim Riley

    Jim Riley has been working part-time in our Ankeny Kyle's Bikes location, answering questions and selling bikes, for four years.

    As we began planning the opening of our second store in Waukee, Kyle needed an Assistant Team Leader. Because Kyle worked for Jim when they were both at UPS, he knew Jim's character and work ethic. And in the last few years he's seen that Jim likes to help riders both experienced and beginner alike.

    We want you to get to know Jim a little better. You can visit him on the weekends now in Ankeny, but when Waukee opens, you can see him nearly any day.

  • Kyle's Bikes Gift Guide 2018

    At Kyle's Bikes, our primary mission is to make cycling and running fun for everyone. Now we want to make gift giving fun! If you have any cyclists or runners on your gift list, you will find some help in the Kyle's Bikes Gift Guide 2018.

    We asked our staff for recommendations for the best gifts to give for the holidays this year. Some of these recommendations just came out this year, like the Tifosi sunglasses and the redesigned Specialized Hotwalk. Some of the items on this list have appeared in our gift guides before because they consistently make good gifts. That includes the Burley Encore bike trailer/jogging stroller and Kyle's Bikes branded water bottles.
