The auction ends on December 16 at 9 PM.

About the Bunch 3.0 Cargo Bike

Skip the traffic. Soar past the carpool line. Forget finding parking. Fill up on giggles, not gas. It’s the school running, kid hauling, grocery getting, beach cruising, and life-changing fun machine from Bunch Bikes!

We’re proud to introduce the Bunch Original 3.0: Updated components on our flagship model, including improved display and controls, more comfortable saddle, flat-resistant tires… and those long-awaited color options!

Transform your daily routine into a joyful outdoor adventure. With super easy steering and a powerful electric assist, the Bunch Bike makes your family life easier, more sustainable, more accessible, and more fun.

The Silent Auction benefits the work of the Iowa Bicycle Coalition.

This was a major fundraiser for the Iowa Bicycle Coalition at the RAGBRAI Route Announcement Party and is scheduled to return at the 2023 Route Party. Registering to bid in the Bunch Cargo Bike Silent Auction will automatically register you to bid in the Route Party Silent Auction. You do not have to be present to bid on silent auction items.
