Craig Cooper learned the bicycle business the old-fashioned way: through a mentor. He began working with Marty Doane at “Marty’s Schwinn Cyclery” in 1980. He then went to Central College to receive a business degree. Here, he met his wife, April Cooper, who was studying to become a school teacher. Shortly after Craig graduated from Central, he and April started Bikes To You in Grinnell. Craig has been a board member of the Grinnell Area Chamber of Commerce, Imagine Grinnell, and The Galaxy Youth Center. When not in the bicycle shop you might find him cycling on an Iowa gravel road or on Rock Creek Lake chillin’ on a pontoon.
April Cooper is a teacher at Grinnell Middle School and woman’s clothing specialist. April makes Bikes To You one of the premier women’s cycling clothing stores in Iowa. April runs the RAGBRAI sales booth and helps design the t-shirts and jerseys.
Kyle Jaeger is the Store Manager and RAGBRAI Charter Director. Kyle received a double B.A. in Communications and Religion from Wartburg College. After college Kyle spent several years working in camping ministry and as a Youth Director in a church before joining the Bikes To You team full-time. When Kyle isn’t at the bicycle shop he can be found enjoying the outdoor hiking, biking, or hunting.
