About Us

Made in the Netherlands, Powered by pedalers

The Big Yellow Bike has been pedaling the Des Moines area since 2012. Our bikes are manufactured in the Netherlands and shipped to the midwest for your enjoyment! They are 100% pedal powered, and provide a unique and enjoyable experience for pub crawls, birthdays, bachelor/bachelorette parties, weddings, tailgates, corporate outings, team builders, and other events! Although the city’s open container law does not allow drinking on the bike, there are several great establishments in the area for pit stops. Check out our most popular stops below!
