The city of West Des Moines purchased the previous Rassy's location (powered by ERIK’S) as part of its plans to widen Grand Avenue beginning in spring 2021. This inspired us to reimagine our presence in the West Des Moines community and rebrand Rassy’s to ERIK’S.

Our shop is conveniently located near some amazing trails and parks in the West Des Moines area including Greenwood Park, the Billy Riley Trail, and Greenbelt Trail. Check out this list to view more of our favorite places to ride in the area.

We recommend biking over to our shop to pick up any gear you need and then hitting up the nearby Confluence Brewery or Sullys Irish Pub (you’ll likely see an ERIK’S staffers enjoying these local watering holes after hours). Additionally, be sure to visit the historic Valley Junction (the main strip in West Des Moines filled with lovely bars and restaurants) when you come see us as it’s right nearby!

We look forward to seeing you soon!
