The City of Iowa City is producing a series of short videos, or video shorts, that focus on bicycle education and safety.

The series called “Bike Shorts” is a follow-up to the Bicycle Master Plan. Each video will run 30 to 60 seconds, and are meant for sharing with your friends, family and co-workers online through Facebook and Twitter using #ICBikeShorts.

The videos, which will feature local bicyclists, will cover a range of topics, anything from fixing a flat tire to locking your bike, to trail etiquette and navigating a roundabout.

You can find the videos online at, and on the City of Iowa City Facebook page and Twitter feed. Keep an eye out for updates! We’ll add more “Bike Shorts” as they are completed. 

Watch the first video to learn how to register your bicycle with the Iowa City Police Department.
