Found this bicycle license from 1958. Do you remember these or do you remember having to license your bike? Bikes are no longer licensed in Winterset. Instead, you are able to register your bike with the Winterset Police Department.

The weather is beautiful for a bike ride and we encourage you to get out and enjoy a bike ride using the sharrows that mark our in-town bicycle route.
