The Free Flight Story

The Free Flight Story

In 1993 Free Flight Bikes began as a little bike shop on Main Street in Platteville, Wisconsin.  In 1995 when Brian Walsh stumbled upon the for sale shop he decided he wanted to bring his passion for cycling and bicycles to people through his own shop, and Free Flight was born.  He focused on getting people on bikes for the pure love of cycling.

Today Free Flight has grown from the little store on Main Street to a newly remodeled 8000 square foot store on the Westside of Dubuque, Iowa.  One thing still remains the same and that is the love for bicycles.  Brian and the staff at Free Flight love to see people find out how much fun cycling is and watch them fall in love with bicycles again.  

Free Flight has a variety of Trek and Gary Fisher bicycles that cater to every kind of cyclist.  We’re here to serve you, whether you’re looking for your first bike or want to trade up to a top of the line Trek.   

We offer weekly rides to introduce you to your bike or help you train for the next race.  Free Flight’s professional fitting services make sure you get the most pain free, injury free miles you can with your bike.  Repair services and classes keep all your bikes tuned and ready to ride. 

Free Flight is also passionate about the community.  Fifteen years ago Free Flight started the Chain Reaction Bike Club bringing to the community a group that exists to promote all aspects of bicycling in the tri-state area.  Brian has also been at the forefront of Dubuque’s new bicycle friendly movement through Tri State Trail Vision.  Its mission is to develop an integrated trail system to enhance the life of the residents in the Tri-State region.

We love cycling and we’re here to help you love it too!
