Zach, Bree, Kaiden and Kinlee Parham.
The holiday season is a great time of year at J&P Cycles – one we all enjoy. There are different festivities we take part in as a group: the holiday party, departmental gift exchanges and employee lunches. It’s hard to not have the holiday spirit.
As we reflect on 2013, the Open House Rally immediately comes to mind. More than 30,000 of you visited us during our 34th annual event in June. With 2014 being J&P’s 35th year in business, we’re upping the ante for the 2014 Open House Rally. Drum roll please… we’re turning this event into a 3-day rally. That’s right, 3 … Continue Reading

The holiday season is a time of year we all enjoy at J&P Cycles. We participate in different gatherings: the annual holiday party, employee lunches and departmental gift exchanges. The mood is festive and bright.
This is also a great time of year to reflect on what has taken place throughout the current year and look ahead to the new year. This year was a fantastic one for J&P Cycles. More than 30,000 of you visited us during the 33rd Open House Rally in June (mark June 29-30 on your calendar for next year).
In 2012 we looked at various ways to make shopping with … Continue Reading

J&P has two locations, our headquarters located in Anamosa, Iowa and a huge retail store in Ormond Beach, (Daytona) Florida. If you’re following the political scene at all, you know both Iowa and Florida are so-called swing states. We’re flooded with candidate visits, ads on television and phone calls. For those of you not getting this treatment – consider yourself lucky.
What has struck me through this political season, while both sides bicker constantly and the level of debate has seemingly reached a new high, is how passionately we all feel for America. Right or left, republican or democrat we have more that unites us than tears us apart. No … Continue Reading

So far this winter, we’ve still got tree leaves covering the Iowa highways instead of snow. Nevertheless, the opportunity to spend time on two wheels is rapidly drawing to a close and our thoughts turn instead to winter projects and the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.
Here at J&P Cycles, we’re constantly inundated with hot deals and promotions, all centered around the after-holiday sales. So what I wanted to do was just take a deep breath and pause to reflect for a moment on what this season is really all about.
And of course, it’s about being thankful — just like we were taught way back in elementary … Continue Reading

It’s been a week since John Parham successfully underwent a left lung transplant, and the J&P Cycles president continues to recuperate, growing stronger every day.
Prior to the transplant, John was using 65 to 70 percent oxygen regularly. Today he is able to function with absolutely no oxygen equipment at all. In addition, he’s able to walk and get around much better than before. The improvement is evident each day as he slowly regains his strength.
Our family is especially appreciative of the many prayers, words of encouragement and support we’ve received from friends and customers these past five months.
We would also like to thank the family of the … Continue Reading
On behalf of everyone here at J&P Cycles, I’d like to wish everyone a safe and happy New Year’s holiday. If you have the privilege of riding this weekend, ride safe (undoubtedly, there will be a lot of unsafe motorists on the roads this weekend, so be extra cautious, especially if you’re on a bike).
2010 is going to be a busy year for J&P. We are adding over 10,000 new parts on the website in the next few months, as well as revamping our mobile showroom/J&P semi. The first event to see the semi’s new look will be Daytona Bike Week, February 26 through March 7.
